Tech-Kern Rappelling Line  

Product Description:
Tech-Kern™ is a Kernmantle style rope consisting of a braided Technora Aramid core covered by a 48-strand Technora mantle. If you are familiar with our Kernmaster you already know the advantages of a braided core rappelling line.

The Tech-Kern was designed to bring the highest heat resistance to the market as Technora has a high melt point and acts as a heat sink when used in frictional applications as with descent devices.

If heat is on your mind consider Tech-Kern.
