A process whereby every individual sheath strand receives a chemical treatment before the rope is manufactured. The treatment is hydrophobic, increases abrasion resistance and is polymerised at high temperatures. The polymerisation process together with every strand being coated individually increases the life of the treatment.

Strong points :

This treatment makes ropes more resistant against abrasion, repeated
falls, heat, dust, moisture and vastly increases their durability.

A DRY COVER treated rope is :

  • More dust and moisture resistant.
  • More abrasion resistant.
  • Designed to maintain its suppleness in belay devices over time.
