Every filament of the sheath and the core of «Golden Dry» ropes is treated with a water repellent chemical before the rope is manufactured. This chemical covering is polymerised at high temperature. The durability of this treatment is given by the polymerisation, but also because of the individual treatment of each filament before the rope is made. A Golden Dry rope is a rope with the core Dry treated, and a sheath of Dry Cover.
• Very limited weight gain in wet conditions.
• Prevents the rope thickening too much.
• Improved rope-running through karabiners and belay devices.
• Improved abrasion resistance in normal climbing use.
