Removing Logos From a Wetsuit


Any tips on how to remove a company logo from a wetsuit? The area would not be covered by any "bat parts." Or would it be better to plastidip or latex over the area?

The chest area on this suit is what I'm thinking about.

Re: removing logos on a wetsuit?


wow that's the same suit I plan on buying! I have a question of my own about this suit, i hope you don't mind Lrcrow: since its only 0,5mm thick, will the neoprene sag if I glue pieces of armor to it? Nothing too heavy or thick, probably pievces of 1/4'' rubber.


And about the logo Lrcrow, aren't you gonna have a chest armor that will hide most of it?

Wow if I had a buck for every time I tried to do that. That is one thing I have never been able to solve other than finding a less labeled suit. The material will almost always be damaged by attempt to remove it through any means including solvents. I just take a paint similar to the one the logo is done with can cover it up or make an additional latex armor piece to cover it.

No. The Bat symbol will cover part of it, but not all, it looks like. I'm contemplating the suit as the base for a comic style one, black variant. Think 89, without all the latex.

why not a REALLY thin coat of latex covering, instead of removing the logo?

I have had a decent amount of success with heating up the logo with an iron then just peeling it off. Heat, peel, heat, peel etc...

lukcily the only part exposed on my suit is a quick silver logo which is tinny next to my left knee, but it is done clear, so it really isnt that visable. Ill still try to heat and peal it off.

MY wetsuit is 3mm thick.... wish it was .5, but oh well, ill burn some calories off.

doubt it VERY seriously.....the material AND the method of assembly are VERY strong.....

would take quite a heavy suit being applied to make it sag

Thanks for all the feedback. After further review, I think I'll stick with a black unitard. Cooler, and without all that work removing the logos.
