What is Biothane and Beta Biothane?

Easy to Clean and Care For

Both Biothane and Beta Biothane products are easy to clean and care for. They are durable and usually more economical than leather. Regular Biothane comes in matte or gloss finish. It is resistant to sweat, water and dirt and can be cleaned with a hose or placed in a pillowcase and put directly into the wash machine. The pillowcase will protect it and your washer from being scratched during the wash cycle. Translucent Biothane comes in gloss finish only. Both regular and translucent Biothane is a polyurethane-coated polyester webbing. The translucent Biothane has a coating that gives the color a brighter glimmer than regular Biothane. Beta Biothane is a polyvinyl-coated polyester webbing. It has the same qualities as regular Biothane but is softer and more flexible and has a more leather look and feel than regular Biothane.

Beta is Softer, Something to Consider

Because Beta Biothane is softer it does not wear as well and is not as resistant to scratches as regular Biothane.  Regular Biothane comes in a multiple assortment of colors.
