When we say quality, we mean it. If the tensile strength is not what it should be, if a piece of lint refuses to be vacuumed, if the spout fails..; are situations which may happen on my floor, but never at my buyers.

P.K. Sahu

Inspecting every stage, not randomly but 100%, maintaining full traceability lends our FIBCs the edge.  

Traceability
Flexituff believes in acquiring wisdom from its mistakes. To that effect, Flexituff has in place a complete traceability system to track down the root cause of deviation, should they happen to occur. All bags carry a unique code number, from which Flexituff can trace the set of workers who made the bag, the date on which it was made up, details and properties of fabric and all other components - going back to the batch of raw material which was used for the extrusion.
This system allows for course-correction by identifying the root cause of the problem and carrying out corrective measures to avoid reoccurrence.

U.V. Resistance test

Bulk bags are often subject to intense UV Rays for months at a time. The body fabric and the seams must survive this exposure without weakening. FIBCs often undergo rapid degrading under the influence of Sun Light, unless they have been stabilized in durable fashion. Sun Light and Moisture causes millions of dollars of material damage every year.

To ensure that Flexituff FIBCs would last outdoors without weakening, every fabric and the yarn produced undergoes a U V Resistance test in State of Art QUV accelerated weathering tester.
Accelerated QUV tester reproduces the damage caused by sun light, rain and dew. QUV tests material by exposing them to alternating cycles of light and moisture at a controlled elevated temperatures.
QUV Resistance test conforms to EN1898 and ASTMG154.

Tensile Testing
Tapes, Webbing and Fabric, all need to have required strengths for safe performance of the FIBCs. Tensile and breaking strength of all components get tested for every lot on computerized Tensile Tester.


Load Test Rig


First bag for every order and also randomly selected bags from daily lot get continually
load tested on our 4 Load Cell Test Rig. Bags get tested for 5, 6 or 8 times their Safe Working
Load. This in-house test facility is very vital to the confidence of our buyer as it eliminates any possibility of an un-safe bag getting into production.
