SUPEREVERDRY - UIAA Water Repellent
Historically Edelweiss was the first climbing rope maker to apply a SUPEREVERDRY treatment to its ropes. This treatment is applied to all fibres in the core and the sheath; the benefits are self- evident: in wet conditions the rope stays lighter, doesn’t tend to stiffen due to freezing and dries quicker.
All the Edelweiss SUPEREVERDRY treated ropes exceed with success the new UIAA WATER REPELLENT standard. To succeed this test performed in certified laboratory, the rope after exposure to a severe water flow must absorb less than 5% of its weight. The results obtained by the SUPEREVERDRY treated ropes are 0.8 to 1.4% (average 1.1%) which has to be compared to the 40-50% absorbed by the non-treated ropes.
How many other hydrophobic treatments can claim such perfect results?
