Manufacturing and receiving FDA approval for a condom may be the most complicated process in the world, for a device with no moving parts...
We're tougher than the FDA, so when our product is picked up to run through the gamut of FDA testing, we aren't concerned. Naked standards are higher than regulating bodies and the industry as a whole. We triple test every condom at the factory before it's shipped.
You wouldn't think it to look at them but condoms have to withstand quite a lot. The FDA oversees everything from latex formation down to every single word used for the final packaging on the box.
We say Sex is better Naked because the whole point of wearing a condom is to not worry...about anything.
- Step 1
- Electrical Test
- Each individual condom is subjected to an electrical test, where it is placed over a metal cylinder and checked for damage or production faults under high tension. This ensures that faulty specimens are discovered immediately and separated out accordingly. Spot endurance tests are also carried out on every production batch to ensure that quality standards are maintained.
- Step 2
- Leak Tightness
- One thing is certain - a condom must remain leak tight. To ensure that the latex skin is completely leak tight the condom is filled with an electrolytic solution and then dipped into a tank also filled with electrolytic solution. An electric bolt is then applied to the liquid inside and outside the condom. If the material has even the smallest amount of damage, the electric current flows through the condom and is registered and reported immediately by a sensitive measuring device.
- Step 3
- In the laboratory, the condom is filled with air until it bursts. To pass the test, the condom must have reached a volume roughly 1000 times what it would normally be expanded to. Condoms are continually spot checked all the way through customs, FDA and to the final destination, always concerned that each box is perfect for you.
