Process whereby every individual core and sheath strand is treated with a hydrophobic chemical formula before the rope is manufactured.
The treatment is polymerised at high temperatures.
This polymerisation process together with every strand being coated increases the longevity of the treatment.
A GOLDEN DRY rope combines 2 treatments: the core’s treatment is added to the DRY COVER sheath treatment.
This helps to achieve an astonishingly durable and waterproof rope.
- Is more frost and water resistant.
- Gains very little weight in humid conditions.
- Improves rope suppleness through karabiners and belay devices.
- Is more abrasion resistant during normal use.
The GOLDEN DRY treatment allows ropes to be labelled as UIAA WATER REPELLENT:
