Product Application Tips
For best results preclean with Zip Care. Thoroughly clean zip, removing all sand, dirt and other debris. Open zip and apply Zip Tech sparingly only to the outer teeth of zip. To thoroughly distribute lubricant, close and open zip carefully. Repeat process until zip moves freely. Wipe away excess. To prolong zip life, reapply Zip Tech periodically and prior to prolonged storage periods. Keep freshly treated zips away from direct contact with sand and dirt.

Repair Tips & Tricks
Zip Tech™ is preferred for multi-dive lubrication. Use Zip Tech to lubricate and protect watertight and airtight zips on dry suits from corrosion and harmful salt, chlorine and other pollutants.
