Drysuit gaskets deteriorate on plastic hangers
« on: January 20, 2008, 02:12:59 PM »

Peter G. suggested I post this: if you hang your drysuit on a plastic hanger, the hanger will emit fumes that eat the rubber gasket.  So if your drysuit's neck gasket is shot but the wrists are fine, that may be why.  Always use wood hangers for anything with rubber in it.

And oh by the way, I do drysuit gasket replacement (I'm doing two necks for Peter)
