    PROCESSES

    UNICORE


    An astonishing process, bonding the 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, creating a potentially dangerous situation. With the UNICORE process, the sheath remains in place and the rope intact and fully functional.

    TREATMENTS

    SUPEREVERDRY


    Edelweiss was the first climbing rope manufacturer to apply a Supereverdry treatment to all fibers in the core and sheath. A Supereverdry treated rope barely absorbs any water in wet conditions, dries quicker, and doesn't stiffen up in freezing temperatures. Comparative tests demonstrate the superiority of this treatment over competing methods of other manufacturers with respect to durability of the treatment as well as efficiency.

    Supereverdry treated ropes exceed the new UIAA WATER REPELLENT standard.

    UIAA WATER REPELLENT


    To succeed in this testing performed in a certified laboratory, the rope must absorb less than 5% of its weight after exposure to a severe water flow for 15 minutes. The results obtained by the Supereverdry treated ropes are 0.8 to 1.4% (average 1.1%) compared to the 40-50% absorbed by the non-treated ropes.
