A melco dot is a Japanese reinforcement material which is heat welded on the inside of a wetsuit to reinforce certain stress areas to make a wetsuit more durable. Melco dots prevent overstretching, which can lead to tearing the wetsuit. Melco material can be used as heat welded tape or heat welded patches or dots. This patch is usually found on the inside of the wetsuit where multiple seams meet in one place, or where less flexible material is stitched to a more flexible material to create an even stress release area.
