Things you should know
Registration
It is very important that you complete and immediately mail the self-addressed
registration card attached. By returning the completed registration card you will ensure
updated or new information regarding the MSD900 is sent to you.
Application
The MSD900 industrial immersion work suit may be used in lieu of traditional dry suit
and anti-exposure work suits when a suit of greater durability, comfort and protection
from exposure to cold is required. The MSD900 provides inherent buoyancy as well as
protection from exposure to cold temperature, wind, sea spray and rain.
WARNING
For optimum performance, it is recommended that users wear polypropylene underwear
beneath the MSD900.
Configuration
The MSD900 provides hypothermia protection and inherent buoyancy using three
interconnected modules to form a single system. Each module can be repaired or
replaced individually. The first module incorporates Mustang’s patented breathable
foam, (United States Patent No.5267519); it is a thermal liner that functions as a
second layer of protection and provides inherent buoyancy. The second module
is the immersion module and provides the suit with watertight integrity and
the equivalent protection of a dry suit. Constructed of a waterproof and breathable
(moisture vapor permeable) fabric, this module’s sleeve openings maintain watertight
integrity with neoprene seals. The immersion module’s (patent pending) neck seal is
constructed of a waterproof, breathable polyurethane/polycarbonate-coated nylon
stretch material and is closed via an adjustable, elastic drawstring system that effectively
seals water outside the module and provides comfortable wear. Sock-type feet are
integrated into the legs. The third module is the outer shell urethane-coated nylon shell
which provides a durable water-resistant barrier to wind, sea spray and rain. This module
is vented allowing the suit to breathe. The knee and seat portions of the outer shell are
reinforced. An integral foam-lined hood provides protection both in and out of the water.

Inspection
General Suit Examination
Periodically examine your MSD900 for visual signs of abrasion or damage. Lay the suit
out on a clean, flat surface. Make sure that the suit is dry inside and out. Visually check
for small rips, tears, or punctures that can be repaired by a suitable repair station*. Major
rips, tears, or punctures should be referred to Mustang Survival for inspection and repair.
*Contact Mustang Survival Corp. for more information.
13
Outer Shell
Inspect the outer shell over its entire surface area for cuts, tears and seam separations.
Any damage found should be repaired prior to further use.
Head Pillow
Check inflatable head support for damage and ensure that it is properly
attached. Check inflation hose(s) for deterioration or leaks. The head
support/buoyancy ring should be inflated and tested for leaks at least every
three months:
a) Inflate the bladder, then immerse it in water and check for bubbles. (Ensure that
the suit is completely dry inside and out before returning it to its bag.)
b) Inflate the bladder, let it stand for 24 hours and then check it for firmness.
Minor leaks can be repaired by a suitable repair station using aquaseal adhesive.
Major leaks should be evaluated and repaired by Mustang Survival.
Retroreflective Tape
Check retroreflective tape for condition and adhesion. Replace if necessary. For
best adhesion, repair should be completed by a suitable repair station or sent
back to Mustang Survival.
Immersion Module
Inspect the immersion module over its entire surface area for cuts, tears and seam tape
separations. Return the immersion module to Mustang Survival for repairs or replacement.
Zipper
Check for ease of zipper operation by sliding it up and down. Using lubricant
recommended by Mustang Survival (see page 13), lubricate the front and back of
the zipper and the slide fastener. If the zipper is not functional, the suit must be
removed from service and discarded or returned to Mustang Survival for repair.
Thermal Liner
Inspect the thermal liner over its entire surface area for cuts, tears and seam separations.
Any damage found should be repaired prior to further use.
