A quick look at our products' construction:
We use ultra-strong Weinerlock brand buckles made by the National Molding company. The d-rings are heavy-gauge metal with welded ends for added safety. The material is strong, water-resistant polyester that is permanently infused with the rich design colors. Strap locks and strap keepers keep the collar perfectly adjusted and secureCat collars are made with breakaway buckles to prevent accidents. Proudly made in the USA.
PatriaPet dog collars are made of very strong polyester material. Because of its strength and resistance to moisture, polyester is also used to make products such as automobile seat belts and performance wear. The tensile strength is comparable to nylon collars of the same width and thickness but our polyester collars are more hydrophobic, meaning that it does not absorb as much water when it gets wet. This feature makes is more resistant to mold, mildew and decay.
The colors in these beautiful collars are infused directly and permanently into the fabric using a high-temperature process called dye-sublimation. This process allows the brilliant, colorfast designs to last for years without ever washing out or scratching off. Some fading will occur over a long period of time (years).
We use only high quality Weinerlock ® brand buckles made by the Duraflex Corporation. We also use heavy gauge d-rings which are welded closed making the collars more secure. Many inferior dog collars skip this step which causes a safety concern when dealing with a strong dog or a persistent puller. Also included on our collars are a sturdy strap lock to easily and securely adjust the collar for the best fit, and a strap keeper to keep double layers of strap from separating.
