WHAT IS FLAKNIT® FABRIC?
This soft, flexible yet almost indestructible textile takes anti-theft to a whole new, and almost ridiculous, level. FLAKnit® is our exclusive virtually slash-proof fabric that achieves an ANSI/ISEA 105 cut level A9, the highest there is! It's made out of a proprietary blend of Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMWPE), ceramic & industrial strength polyester. FLAKnit® is just one of the innovations that make our bags the toughest in the world. There's nothing else like it on the market, not even close.
FLAKnit Slash Test
THE FLAKNIT® STORY
FLAKnit® fabric is the result of an innovative coalition consisting of LOCTOTE®, Honeywell® – the leading innovator of high-performance fiber, and Tuff-N-Lite – the smartest and craziest textile mad scientists we could find. Together, we started with a blank canvas and set out to develop proprietary yarns and knitting methods to create the toughest most slash resistant textile available to the consumer market. After dozens of failures (too heavy, too stiff, too hard, too rough, too stretchy, too fuzzy, etc.), a lot of testing, and a small fortune in dulled knife blades, FLAKnit™ emerged.
We know what you’re thinking… “If this textile is so tough, how do you cut it to make bags out of it?” We don’t! We actually knit each bag into its final form and shape. No cutting is necessary.
WHAT'S IN IT
Our slash-resistant toughness comes from the superior cut protection of Honeywell's UHMWPE Spectra fiber, the same fiber used in police vests and military gear for bullet resistance. Decades of research and proven performance go into every strand of Spectra fiber, and Honeywell is committed to continue innovation in collaboration with LOCTOTE.
