BioThane, Beta, Leather Weight

The BioThane® Beta 520 & 580 leather weight products are PVC coated polyester webbings with a matte (520) and semi-gloss (580) surface finish. One side of the webbing has a leather embossed grain surface while the other side has a sand embossed grain. The feel is more soft and flexible when compared to the Granite product line.
