Chemical Test

BioThane's protective coating keeps webbing in perfect condition while testing. Heat seal the ends for best results.

Test Procedure

ASTM: D471-12
Rubber Property Effect of Liquid


After soaking the webbing samples in oil for more than a month, the protective coating on BioThane® coated webbing reveals the webbing underneath is still in perfect condition. We recommend heat sealing the ends of BioThane® coated webbing to achieve these results.
