TEUFELBERGER has developed a detergent specifically formulated for fiber ropes that extends the service life without compromising strength.
In 2013, TEUFELBERGER engineers launched a testing project “Deliberate Rope Damage in Fiber Ropes”, to analyzing the impacts of various mechanisms of damage to fiber ropes.
The results of the analyses enable TEUFELBERGER to understand, among others, the effects of washing on the service life of ropes. For you as a climber, the topic of how to wash a fiber rope and the use of detergents is of particular interest in regards to the integrity of your rope and your safety.
SCRUBBA is an easy to use rope detergent specifically formulated to clean ropes effectively and gently.
Washing a rope has an impact on the residual strength, therefore the choice of detergent is vital. Teufelberger's tests reveal that after eight washings with powder detergent the residual strength of a fiber rope dropped to 58%. In comparison, washing gel reduced tensile strength by 22%. After 8 washings, SCRUBBA produced the best test results with the least amount of tensile strength loss.
To wash with SCRUBBA
Can be used both in the washing machine or hand washing.
