1600g RE Thor Drysuit

Included in this Bundle:

  • 1600g RE Thor Drysuit
  • Double Mushroom Exhaust
  • Commercial Inflation Valve
  • 40" Cien Drysuit Inflation Hose
  • Talc
  • Suit Seal
  • Repair Kit

Our Thor drysuit is manufactured from a vulcanised polymer created from a mix of high-grade rubber and EPDM. Vulcanised laminated polymers are carried on a multidirectional 4-way-stretch knitted polyester, which gives excellent strength and durability. The Thor is suitable for commercial diving applications but is also an excellent option for military and rescue purposes. The Thor has been thoroughly tested at the Austin Institute in Texas, USA. All Thor drysuits are CE approved and conform to the latest EEC PPE directive regarding drysuits.

Our quality control management conforms to BS EN ISO 9001:2008, ensuring that all Northern Diver products are of the highest quality and manufacturing standards. Thor drysuits can be manufactured to custom specifications, including fitting items such as reflective overprinting, extra reinforcement and pockets.

You can customize your suit as much or little as you require. All suits are fitted with neck & wrist seals, boots or socks – size information is detailed in our sizing charts. We can alter the neck, wrist and boots if you require a specific size that differs from the standard fits. Alterations are chargeable, if you require alterations please contact us at Safety Gear Store on 0800 678 5708 for further assistance.

Chemical Permeation & Biological Penetration Tests

The majority of divers using Thor drysuits in contaminated water require information regarding the drysuit’s protective qualities to be made available. Thor suits underwent permeation testing under worst case scenario conditions – 100% chemical exposure for the entire length of the test. Although these test conditions are unlikely in any chemical diving environment, the results demonstrate the protection offered under most normal circumstances.


Permeation Test Results

The permeation values are based on the time it takes for the chemical to permeate the suit material. The permeation test is performed up to 480 minutes. The reports that indicate greater than 480 minutes means that no chemical was detected above 0.1 mg/ min/cm2 for 8 hours’ duration.


Actual Breakthrough vs. Normalised Breakthrough

Actual breakthrough is reported in minutes and occurs when initial breakthrough is detected. Each chemical tested has unique characteristics and minimal detectable limits.


For example: if a chemical has a minimum detectable limit of 0.059 mg/ min/cm2, actual breakthrough is reported when challenge chemical concentrations reach 0.059 mg/ min/ cm2 or greater. Normalized breakthrough occurs when challenge chemical breakthrough concentrations reach 0.1 mg/ min/ cm2 or greater (AaSTMm Ff739).

Maximum Minimal Detectable Rates

This indicates the maximum level of chemical detection using the permeation test system. The minimal detectable rate is the lowest rate of permeation that is detectable with the permeation system.


Steady State Permeation

The constant rate of permeation that occurs after breakthrough when the chemical contact is continuous and all forces affecting permeation has reached equilibrium.


When Diving in Polluted, Contaminated or Generally Abnormal Environments

Northern Diver’s Thor drysuit has been developed and tested for use in these conditions and as such should be regarded as an integral component of your diving plans. Diving in contaminated environments has the potential to be extremely dangerous.


Decontamination

After exposure to a contaminated environment, the Thor drysuit must be decontaminated, ensuring that all contaminants have been removed from the drysuit.


Diving in contaminated environments should not be undertaken by those without the highest level of training. All risks should be understood prior to any contaminated environment diving, with all risks carefully planned for and the utmost care taken.

Features:

  • Chemical and biological permeation resistant
  • Triple-vulcanised bonded for life seams with reinforced knee & crotch area
  • CE Approved
