STEP 1 - Get to know the fabric. Feel it. Stretch it. Smell it. Lick it (Okay, maybe don’t lick it!)
STEP 2 - Tug on it and try to tear it. It’s impossible.
STEP 3 - Take a knife (please be careful) and run it across the fabric. Try to get through the fabric by slashing it. C’mon, harder! Is it impossible to get through? No, but it’ll take some serious time and effort.
STEP 4 - Get Creative and give it the "business". You know what you put your bags through. See how well your FLAKnit fabric square stands up to the same abuses.
STEP 5 - Share your fabric square. Show your friends how cool it is. Have them try the technology themselves. Then, if you decide you want a bag made out of the toughest fabric in the world, go to loctote.com and get yourself a Flak Sack II or Flak Sack COALITION.
This stuff is tuff! You can stick it but you definitely can't slash it!
I requested and received a sample of flaknit fabric from Loctote. The fabric cannot be ripped or stretched or torn by hand (and I am very strong and muscular........ and quite handsome). If I tried very hard I could make small puncture holes by holding the fabric over the tip of a knife, but I stopped before using enough force that I might slip. For that purpose I could not get a decent puncture. If I used scissors I could make cuts into the edge of the cloth by making small chewing motions with the scissors. I laid the fabric on my counter top and sliced hard into the fabric. There was no cutting with this method. None. I believe the bags made from this material would be extremely secure. Impressive product!
It was cut after a good 4 days
It really does do what it says it will do. I'll definitely be buying the bag, just waiting for new designs and a sale.
This fabric is awesome! I pulled and tugged and tried to cut it with scissors, to no avail. The material held strong!
