Micropore works directly with diving end users around the world and partners with rebreather Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) to integrate ExtendAir® CO2 absorbent technology into rebreather systems. Below are OEM and distribution partners to contact for rebreather information and absorbent logistics support.  If you do not see a rebreather listed that you desire to have ExtendAir® technology, please contact us, we may already be working with an OEM and will update this site as new releases become available.
