Biothane is becoming a phenomenon across multiple industries but what is it? Manufactured in the USA, Biothane is a trademark name used to describe polyester webbing coated in either TPU (Thermoplastic Polyurethane) or PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride). The additional plastic coating means Biothane webbing is more durable, easy to clean and waterproof. With so many variations in thicknesses and finishes it’s no wonder Biothane USA has managed to penetrate its way through the different industries. The question is, what can be made out of Biothane?
As we are the UK distributor we feel it is our duty to share with you the endless possibilities you can make with a roll of Biothane webbing and even convince you why you should have a roll in your workshop.
1. Perhaps one of the most obvious things to make with Biothane is a dog collar. If your customers are looking for something fun and practical then it’s worth considering the Biothane GOLD STANDARD or GOLD HIFLEX Range. It’s strong, durable, easily to clean and unlike leather and webbing collars, Biothane collars will not have that lingering dog smell.
2. For those looking for an alternative to leather tack, Biothane experts recommend their BETA SUPER HEAVY. It’s the closest aesthetically looking thing to leather and since the late 1990’s it has built up its reputation and earned the trust of bridle and halter makers alike. Soft, supple and easy to wash. Available in favourable sizes, 5/8”, ¾” and 1”.
3. From horses to Humans, Biothane is also used to make safety harnesses, military belts, police belts and tool belts. Again the gold series proves to be a popular choice because of its resistance to electric shocks making it ideal for safety harnesses (particularly those who work in close contact with live electricity). For belts, try Biothane’s GRANITE range; a matt finish designed suitably for heavy duty work.
Whatever usual or unusual request falls in the hands of your workshop, Biothane may just be the answer! From tack equipment to high chair straps and watch straps, Biothane USA has something for (almost!) every application.
Choose your finish (BETA, GOLD and GRANITE), profile (Standard, Super heavy, Soft Super Heavy, Super Thick, Superflex, Ultra Thin, Hiflex, Grooved and Super Grip) and width and you will be limitless as to what you can make.
Still unsure? Why not request a sample HERE.
