What is BioThane® ?
BioThane® is a trademarked artificial material that has the look and feel of leather, but without the problems that comes with leather. It’s basically a polyester webbing with a TPU or PVC coating that makes it more durable, waterproof, and easy to clean.
BioThane® is strong, durable, and pliable. It comes in various widths, thicknesses, colours and also textures. One aspect I genuinely appreciate is just how low maintenance BioThane® is compared to leather.
BioThane® leads and collars have a 360kg break strength per 2cm width. BioThane® only gets brittle at extremely low temperatures. BioThane® only starts breaking down at -49°C (-56°F)!
