TEUFELBERGER has developed a detergent specifically formulated for fiber ropes that extends the service life without compromising strength.
In 2013, TEUFELBERGER engineers launched the project “Deliberate Rope Damage in Fiber Ropes”, testing and analyzing the impacts of various mechanisms of damage to fiber ropes. The results of the analyses enable us 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 use detergents is of particular interest in regards to the integrity of your rope and your safety. The solution is SCRUBBA!
SCRUBBA is their easy to use rope detergent specifically formulated to clean ropes effectively and gently.
