How do I know if a flat looped band is layered or molded?

Unfortunately, many band retailers are aware of the durability difference between molded and layered bands and will therefore, state their bands are layered when in reality they are molded. However a layered band will have a seam that reflects the end of the final layer of the band. In a Quantum Band, we take it one step further and apply a Latex Weld that securely seals the final layer down onto the band to eliminates the top layer from peeling back after only a few training sessions. If you do not see a seam or weld, the likelihood is the band is molded.
