Beal STINGER III 9.4mm UNICORE rope Product News

© Beal

Beal STINGER III 9.4mm UNICORE is a single rope offering easy running and security for those hard routes.

UNICORE

UNICORE as standard, the rope sheath and core are bonded without affecting the ropes suppleness. If the sheath is cut or torn, the core and sheath remain bonded together. Without this technology if the rope is cut by abrasion over an edge, a frequent occurence in the mountains it slides and gathers over some metres making it impossible to pass this zone whether ascending or descending.

Beal STINGER is available in DRY COVER and GOLDEN DRY.

DRY COVER

A process whereby every individual sheath strand receives a chemical treatment before the rope is manufactured. The treatment is hydrophobic, increases abrasion resistance and is polymerised at high temperatures. The polymerisation process together with every strand being coated individually increases the life of the treatment. This treatment makes ropes more resistant against abrasion, repeated falls, heat, dust, moisture and vastly increases their durability.

GOLDEN DRY

A process whereby every individual core and sheath strand is treated with a hydrophobic chemical formula before the rope is manufactured. The treatment is polymerised at high temperatures. The polymerisation process together with every strand being coated increases the longevity of the treatment. A GOLDEN DRY rope combines 2 treatments: the cores treatment is added to the DRY COVER sheath treatment, this helps to achieve an astonishgly durable and waterproof rope.

    The GOLDEN DRY treatment allows ropes to be labelled as UIAA WATER RELLENT.
