UNICORE: Unicore is an innovative process, bonding rope sheath and core without affecting the rope's suppleness. If the sheath is cut or torn, the core and sheath remain bonded together. With a standard rope, if the sheath is cut by abrasion over an edge, the sheath can slide and gather along the rope length. This can create a potentially dangerous situation. With the Unicore process the sheath remains in place and the rope intact and fully functional.
Questions & Answers
Thank you for your question.
The Golden Dry treatment provides an increased level of moisture protection from their Dry Cover ropes, as it treats not only the sheath but the core as well, while Dry Cover only treats the sheath.
Please let me know if you have any further questions or concerns.
