The Complete Shield treatment gives the maximum level of protection to the rope with high water resistance and abrasion resistance. Using the new progressive method called Nanotechnology, Teflon in form of very small particles is applied to the rope sheath as well as the rope core and forms an almost impermeable protective layer against water and dust that could damage the sheath or the core. Complete Shield is a new impregnation which extends the typical lifespan of Tendon ropes significantly.
