What Our Collars are Made From & Why
Staying true to my mandate of comfy, supple and lightweight, only standard weight biothane is used on all 1/2″, 5/8″ and 1″ collars and leashes. If your collar or leash gets soiled, simply wash in soapy water, rinse, and wipe off excess water. Dries instantly and can be worn immediately.
Waterproof ~ Odorproof ~ HypoAllergenic & AntiMicrobial
Has a minimum pull strength of 1000 pounds per inch of width and is 20% lighter than leather. Looks and feels like leather but simply outperforms and outlasts leather
Biothane is used as:
- Space Suit Straps for NASA.
- Earthquake-proofing Straps.
- NFL Shoulder Pad and Chin Straps.
- Cleanable, Reusable EMS Patient Restraint Straps.
- Marine Products.
Biothane is Made in the USA and based in Ohio.
I do not use plated metals because the plating often chips and wears through to the base metal over time.
I use only Stainless Steel for these reasons:
Stronger and Harder than Brass
Virtually indestructible, with inherent long-life properties that do not diminish over time or repeated use.
Well-known for its antibacterial, hypoallergenic and hygienic properties, stainless steel is very easy to clean.
Designers often underestimate or overlook the values of Stainless because of what is viewed as the higher initial costs. However, when taking into consideration the longevity, durability and lack of maintenance needed, Stainless is often the best value option.
