The new version of the bench mark rope. BlueWater have advanced rope technology another step. Both the double twist, cabled core and the double twist, cabled sheath of BlueWater static ropes have been changed and improved. Hence the name "plus plus".
The first plus: 100% polyamide (nylon) core is now made from a higher performance material than before. The sheath is now made from a pot dyed polyester, with less elongation than before. BlueWater II++ has very low stretch at working loads but retains excellent energy absorption.
The second plus: Both the core and the sheath materials are stronger. The new BlueWaterII++ has more fibre in the sheath than its predecessor, without any noticeable increase in diameter. The result is a rope that is 10% stronger than the equivalent BlueWater II+.
Other pluses: The BlueWater II++ is softer to handle, while retaining the legendary BlueWater abrasion resistance.
ALL BlueWater static ropes are STILL MADE IN AUSTRALIA in BlueWater's AS/NZS ISO 9001:2000 certified facility.
