There's several products from AquaSeal/McNett. I use ZipTech which
is soft wax and in a tube like a huge chapstick. It works great.
It's easiest to apply in temps over about 75F. But if you beach
dive its a bad idea as (I'm told by reliable sources) the fine
sand will stick to it.

There's also ZipCare which is a liquid in a bottle with a brush in
the cap. I don't think it lasts as long.

And Northern Diver has a liquid that's quite good but I haven't
been able to find it lately.

I wax the zippers the first week of every month (we dive 6-10 days
most months).
