Cressi has improved his prestigious "soft wetsuit" with the new neoprene LC. Neoprene LC has better properties, bouyancy, compression resistance, tear and deterioration by the sun action. This neoprene has the same features of flexibility than the old version Yamamoto 45. It"s a 90% seal soft wetsuit. There are some differences about the old wetsuit in the hips and chin.

Cressi LC: new acronyms, new material and better performance

The acronym LC, abbreviation in English of "Low Compression", clearly define some of the objectives pursued by the manufacturer.
There is a polarization in the market among users who prefer Yamamoto 45 neoprene type (used so far by Cressi and is reputed to be very elastic but a little bit fragile) and others who prefer neoprenes a little bit less elastic (but with a better compression during descent, loss of thickness with the use, tear resistance and aging), we want to compare the performances of both options.
With this intention, we have obtained two samples of neoprene, like Cressi LC and Yamamoto 45, and have undergone a rigorous testing laboratory.
The following graphs and tables show the results obtained.

  • Differences between the samples under a microscope without exposing: Observing the expansion of cross sections of the two samples, shows that the superficial grain of Yamamoto 45 is bigger.
  • Differences on the microscope between the exposed samples: you can see some deep grooves in the two samples, being more abundant in the Yamamoto 45. This would indicate a worse behavior of the latter material compared to the new Cressi LC as far as aging.
  • Manual differences between the samples exposed: pulling the exposed samples, appear grooves very marked in both materials, especially in the Yamamoto 45, where the elongation required for its appearance is less. 

Keys to understanding the differences

  • Breaking point (strength and maximum elongation): if the higher limit of stretching and resitance are bigger, the breaking point is bigger too and you will have more performance.  
  • Elasticity: is directly related to the design of the pans. A higher elasticity, higher will be the number of users that fit in a same size without losing comfort. Among experienced users, is specially appreciated the comfort in the ventilation phase. Higher elastic, better benefits.  
  • Compression: The neoprene compression affects changes of buoyancy of the pan and the thermal protection that provide, depending on the depth of use. It also has direct relation with the lenght of the pan: in the samples tested, with more compression, more memory;  with less compression, less buoyancy changes and thermal protection, and higher duration of the pan.

    Initially, in 1946, was released as Cressi company run by diving, rich in innovation and product development. As an Italian brand, whose ownership and management is entirely familiar, Mares was the first company to produce items such as underwater masks with adjustable nose and fins. From the beginning, all products are designed and manufactured in Italy using the machinery and tools of your own company. To date, is an innovative research, development and manufacturing of the product. Cressi is a company full of underwater sports field whose articles cover diving, spear fishing, snorkeling and swimming. The first Cressi swimming goggles were made in the fifties and swimming goggles were called. Throughout its entire corporate history, Cressi has continued to improve and widen your own collection of products. In fact, in the fifties and sixties, many European swimming champs could use Cressi products, short fins and goggles. Since the company was born, products for swimming have represented an important sector in the range of Cressi items. To this end, in 2005, created a separate Cressi products targeted to swimming brand. Cressi Swim was established, which provides a wide range of products and clothing for swimming between there masks, goggles, fins, caps, suits and accessories. In recent years, products like the Cobra Swim and Palau fins, adjustable short and represent the continued importance given to the development and product innovation. In 2009, the Cressi Swim website was launched as a place where people from around the world to find online information related to the entire Cressi Swim line. For more information on the entire line Cressi products related to diving, to snorkeling and spear fishing not hesitate in access the site. Cressi is proud to manufacture the majority of its products at its headquarters factory in Genova, Italy. This allows a high level of quality control, as Mr. Mares is able to follow the production process personally on a daily basis. Genova is a 30 minute drive from the beautiful bay of Portofino, a haven for diving from the 40s, and this allows Mr. Mares and Cressi Equipment can easily test the water all products Cressi manufactures. History 1930's-1940's 1938 Egidio and Nanni Cressi The brothers begin to manually build the first mask and the first rifles. This is the history of Cressi is the oldest underwater equipment factory in the world. 1943 The first Cressi mask, Siren, is manually produced in 1943. It remained in the catalog, with progressive and different innovations for over thirty years. 1946 Cressi was officially founded in Italy, Genoa. 1946 At the end of the 40s in their catalog Cressi presents a complete range of Persian power rifles and long. The range includes a dozen different models. 1947 Aro AR47 - In 1947 the first selfbreathing is produced by CCTV. It is ultra modern and is equipped with sophisticated technical solutions, such as condensation catcher. 1948 A vast range of masks is available for each of the requirements: hunting, snorkeling and diving with selfbreathing (rebreather).
