Marlow DriCoat is not just a simple exterior coating, but rather a unique and extremely effective rope impregnation formula.
Ropes become wet very easily on board high performance racing yachts; breaking waves and spray, a sudden downpour and very cold conditions all cause water uptake in ropes.
A wet rope can be up to 50% heavier than a dry one – with the quantity of rope on-board racing yachts, that additional weight can soon add up. DriCoat is designed to provide long lasting protection against water absorption and therefore unnecessary on-board weight.
In addition DriCoat significantly improves both internal and external abrasion and the effects of freezing and ice damage, thereby allowing the ropes to perform better for longer!
