SHOT Show – Biothane Belt

Wednesday, January 20th, 2016

So I’m in the Murdock Webbing booth when I spy a belt made from their Jacquard webbing in Kryptek Mandrake, treated with Biothane. I remarked that I didn’t realize there was Biothane webbing that thin. Then, the guys from Austrialpin added their Vobra buckle to the mix and we had a new concept for a belt.

The belt is not available, but the stuff to make it is.

It’s not an exact copy, but it was obviously created to accomplish the same function. Certainly inspired. Barring any IP issues, let the market decide.

AustriAlpin Introduces New Buckle Colors

Friday, September 26th, 2014

This is very cool news from AustriAlpin regarding the introduction Of new powder coated colors. Thanks to the guys at Tactical Trim for passing this on to us.

After a development period of 8 months, the big day has finally arrived. AustriAlpin proudly presents the new powder-coated color range of the patented COBRA quick release buckle! The buckle color options of Sand, Coyote Brown, Tan 499, Foliage Green, Elephant Grey, Wolf Grey, White and Signal Orange will all now be finished with a new powder coating process. Buckles in the Black, Matte Black, Titanium Blue and Polished Metal will remain anodized and polished.

Why change? Why not stay with anodizing?

Our dedication to extremely high quality standards is the basis of the trust our customers put in us. Using the anodizing process it was very difficult and sometimes impossible to meet these high quality standards – especially with lighter tones and brighter colors we could not meet the color-match requirements, and the results were also often inconsistent.

Meanwhile, all over the world people are working on developing the best camouflage designs for their respective environments. In order to harmonize with these new camo designs and patterns, all accessories and trims should match the camo colors as perfectly as possible.

Why powder coating?

Powder coating guarantees a consistent and perfectly-even result so that all pieces will match the color standard all of the time.

The powder coating is also very durable and highly resistant to high temperatures and UV radiation. During the ISO cross-cut test for paint adhesion, the achieved rating was 0, which is the best possible test result.

The new color series is in production now; however, it will take until the end of 2014 to fully stock all models in every color.
