Biothane is a trademarked brand of betathane. Betathane is the generic term used to describe coated web strap goods. Both products come with either shiney or dull finish. There are textured betathane products as well. All Biothane is betathane but all betathane is not biothane. We (I) use the term bio incorrectly just like I call a facial tissue a Kleenex. Most harness makers are going to use the betathane because it is the generic goods thus less costly.
