SHEICO - The Professional Sportswear Manufacturer


Organiprene, a natural rubber alternative to Neoprene


Sheico has always strived to protect our environmental as a part of our commitment to sustainable business operations. We continue to develop more environmentally friendly materials and technologies, and work closely with our customers to create more environmentally friendly products.

Sheico opted to use Limestone instead of petrochemical raw materials to make neoprene since the very beginning. We also established the Eco Infinic plant in 2017. The plant recycles waste tires into recycled carbon black, which is a key component in neoprene foam.

Neoprene foams from Sheico do not have any chloroprene raw materials from Cancer Alley in the United States. Alternatively, Sheico offers natural rubber if customers concerns still persist. Sheico Organiprene uses FSC certified natural rubber to replace synthetic rubber.

Please don't hesitate to contact us for ECO-friendly materials and technologies to create your green products. We invite all brands to work together to make the Earth a better place to live through sustainability and responsibility.

Neoprene crisis: no wetsuit under the tree at Christmas?

Franceinfo:sport, a famous French sports media had interviewed Jeff Shiue, the Director of Sales at SHEICO Group about his aspect on the current status for the outdoor and water sports industries.

"During the pandemic and the lockdowns," Jeff Shiue explains to Franceinfo: sport, "the popularity of watersports surged. We currently have to balance the huge demand for wetsuits with shortages of several key raw materials for wetsuit production. The most severe shortage is for the polychloroprene chips, which is a global concern for every wetsuit manufacturer. Fortunately, having strong relationships with rubber suppliers gave SHEICO the opportunity to preemptively secure the majority of raw materials we need. In addition, we also encourage brands to use more sustainable substitute materials that are in more abundant supply, such as our "Organiprene" natural rubber product."

"When raw material pricing and shipping costs increased to the extent that it has over the last year, unfortunately, we had no choice but to reflect part of that cost increase to our customers. However, the price adjustments are only to maintain our profit margins, and SHEICO will amend the price accordingly as soon as raw material pricing goes back to normal."
