PLATINUM® is the name of TEUFELBERGER’s new and innovative braiding technology. For the first time in the history of rope making, previously independent elements of a rope are interconnected into one unit. What makes PLATINUM® so special compared to the kernmantle ropes currently available on the market? In conventional kernmantle ropes, there is no connection between the core and the cover. The two components are loose and movable. With the new and innovative PLATINUM® technology, TEUFELBERGER successfully obtained a mechanical and durable connection between the core and the cover. Moreover, PLATINUM® connects parallel cores to one another, thus relieving the load the previously heavily loaded outer yarns are exposed to.
