Fire Resistance  

Genuine stingray skin has a built in resistance to fire. The imitation skin made from plastics will melt after a few seconds. (Do not apply flame to the cowhide border or lining of a stingray product or apply flame to genuine stingray skin for a long time).

Heat Resistance

Genuine stingray skin has a built in resistance to heat. If you apply a heated metal tip to the large pearls of imitation skin, it will melt after a few seconds. Genuine stingray skin will not.

Scratch resistance

Genuine stingray skin is highly resistant to scratching. Rub steel wool against genuine stingray skin and there should be minimal noticeable affect (note – surface colorings will be eroded by such extreme examination). Imitation skin made from plastics will scratch and disfigure rather easily.
