Sherwood Scuba's New ZODIAC+ Jacket Style BC incorporates Thermoplastic Polyurethane (TPU) with an Innovative, User-Friendly-Design. This BC sets new standards for Durability and Ease-of-Use among Buoyancy Compensators. The TPU material combines Extraordinary Strength-and-Durability with the unique ability to Dry-almost-Instantly. No matter how long you dive, the ZODIAC+ Will-Not Absorb a Single-Drop-of-Water. After a dive, just a Quick-Rinse and it will be Dry-in-Minutes. The TPU material will NOT Degrade from UV Exposure. Known as Photo-Degradation, Exposure to the Ultraviolet Rays of the Sun Brutalizes most materials, causing Cracking, Fading, Loss-of-Flexibility and Strength. But TPU has Exceptional Resistance to UV Rays, so the ZODIAC+ will not fade even from long hours of exposure to sunlight.
