H.Dessault Incrompressible Neoprene

Hi, I have been looking at the H.Dessault X-tend incompressible Neoprene jacket as although it is expensive at first it will pay for itself over time.
Has anyone used this type or similar Neoprene? If so what are your views as I can find little information about this type of neoprene and wether it is a stiff or a flexible neoprene . Cheers.

I'm currently an intern at a cable manufacturing location and I have been tasked with creating a better system for placing a neoprene jacket over a cable assembly. The company currently uses airhoses and talc powder (it's a heck of a tight squeeze) to snake through the cable until the entire jacket is in place. This process works well enough, but they want a way that the cable can be jacketed without using over 3 people for 20-30 Speed Test minutes. Also, this process risks the cable popping from the compressed air.
