DryCover vs. GoldenDry
DryCover - Every sheath on every Beal dynamic rope is given a special DryCover 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. Beal calls it ropes with both treatments GoldenDry.
GoldenDry - In addition to the performance of DryCover, Beal also enhances the durability of the core by another exclusive procedure. Every filament in the strands of the core is coated with a fluoride solution by a continuous process, which is then heat-set and polymerised onto the polyamide. Protecting the rope from water absorption eliminates weight increase, risk of freezing on cold weather climbs, and slows the wearing of the rope considerably. With GoldenDry treatment, your rope doesn't take up much water, even in extreme conditions. Actual use reveals that a 100 metre rope used in winter conditions absorbs around two and a half litres of water during the day if it's not treated, 1 litre if it has had the Beal dry treatment, little more than ½ litre if it is DryCover treated, and only ¼ litre with GoldenDry treatment.
