Our BioThane Grooming Loops have been called a "game changer" by many professional groomers. They are made from official BioThane which is made in the USA. BioThane has a polyester webbing coated in rubber-like PVC. Even the narrowest options has a strength limit of 750 pounds so no worries about it breaking with use. It is waterproof and non-porous so it is very easy to clean and sanitize. It won't mildew or stink no matter how often you use it. It will not cause hot spots or damage coat as long as used correctly. Many groomers use it from tub to table due to the uniqueness and quick dry properties.
