Every sheath on every Beal dynamic rope is given a special treatment to increase its resistance to wear resulting from abrasion; falls; dirt; the wet; and in so doing, significantly increasing its active lifetime.
Durable Resistant Yarn Cover chemically coats each filament, which is then heat-treated, creating an actual shell of polymerised molecules. This shell is in its turn fixed in place by chemical bonding with the molecules of the polyamide. . . resulting in a durable resistant cover on the yarn.
Durable Resistant Yarn Cover constitutes a hydrophobic treatment of the sheath, which does not, on its own, render the entire rope DRY. For that, the core must also be given water repellency. We call ropes with both treatments GOLDEN DRY.
