Duratec Dry Treatment
Dry treatment makes the rope more resistant to water, dirt and abrasion; handling, grip, and other characteristics are retained longer in cold, wet conditions.
The core and the sheath are bonded together at the rope ends by an ultrasonic process called UltraSonic Finish; gives greater durability and avoids frayed ends.
Special thermal treatment stabilizes the core strands and improves consistency; offers excellent grip and consistent handling over time.
Specific coil makes the rope ready for use; helps the user avoid initial uncoiling mistakes and increases longevity.
