DAMEL, a Portuguese textile company specialized in the development of technical clothing, is determined to win market share in the US, through the commercialization of its latest technological innovation - the SeaB2, a clothing system with integrated inflation, which promises to revolutionize the concepts of security in the context of maritime activities. The SeaB2 is used as a part of regular clothing (jacket, overalls or vest) and is built on the outside of a lifejacket completely unnoticeable.
The SeaB2 inflation system is activated automatically as soon as it hits the water and it is the only system, worldwide, with a lifejacket that allows the user to swim crawl and access the nearest vessel or platform. The goal was to combine functionality with an appealing, comfortable and practical design. The SeaB2 allows the user complete freedom of movement and can be used for sailing, fishing and other water sports
The materials used in SeaB2 have a high resistance to tearing and perforation. In addition to being waterproof and heat-insulated, these garments protect against fire and against electric arc discharge. With built-in harness and lifeline, it allows for helicopter rescues at sea. The presentation of SeaB2 clothing system in the US market was last week in Atlanta, Georgia, where DAMEL will be present at the TechTextil North America fair, taking place from May 3 to 5 at the Georgia World Congress Center.
