4.4 Hygienic properties

Bags directly in contact with food and medicine should comply with GB 9687 or GB 9688.

5.Testing method

5.1Appearance inspection.

Visual inspection of appearance under natural light.

5.2Length and width

Flatten the bag. Measure three places in the middle and 100 mm away with a ruler accurate to 1 mm. The ruler should be parallel to the edge of the bag. The maximum deviation is taken as the test result.

5.3Weaving density

Flatten the bag, delineate 100 mm X 100 mm two diagonal blocks at the top and bottom of the bag. The outer edge of the square is 100 mm apart from the edge of the bag. Visually measure the number of longitude and latitude roots in the square, and take the average value. When the last edge is less than one, calculate it according to one.

5.4 Weight per unit area.(gsm)

5.4.1 Cut 4 pieces of sample of square meter 10000mm² each.

5.4.2 The mass is weighed by a balance with a sensitivity of 0.01 g, and its arithmetic average value is taken to calculate the mass deviation per unit area.

5.5 Tensile strength.

5.5.1 Testing condition refer to GB/T 1039.

Testing temperature 23℃±2℃, adjust 4h under normal humidity.

5.5.2 Testing equipment should meets the stipulation recorded in standard GB/T 1040-92, chapter 6. Fixture spacing 200mm.

5.5.3 Sampling method

Take the folded thread side as sampling side, two pieces of warp, weft, seam edge and seam bottom were taken on each bag, 300 mm long and 60 mm wide, and then corrected to 50 mm. If the last one is more than half of the root, it should be retained. The seams on both sides of the seam specimen should be lengthened appropriately.

5.5.4 The tensile load of the specimen was recorded and its arithmetic average value was taken.

5.5.5 In the test, if the sample is broken or slipped in the fixture, the sample should be replaced.

5.6 Heat Resistance

5.6.1 Two longitudinal and latitudinal specimens, 300 m long and 20 m wide, were taken from bagged soil.

5.6.2 Overlay its surface and apply a load of 9.8 N on it. Put them in the oven of 80C for 1 hour and remove them. Two pieces of weight A will be taken out.

Samples are separated to check whether there are abnormal conditions such as adhesion and melt marks on the surface.

5.7 Drop Resistance

The test method is carried out in accordance with G B/T 4857.5

5.7.1 Test environments were normal temperature and humidity.

6.4.1 Quality determination of sample units

The appearance and deviation of the bags are tested according to 4.1 A. 2. If all the items are qualified, the sample units are qualified.

6.4.2 Quality determination of qualified batches

6. 4. 2. 1 bags of appearance and deviation qualified judgement in accordance with the provisions of G B/T 2828, with the number of unqualified products per 100 units as the batch quality

Quantity, general inspection level is I, qualified quality level (A Q L) is 6.5. Specific provisions are shown in Table 50. If there are unqualified items in the tensile load test, the unqualified items should be re-examined by double sampling in the original batch, and if the re-examination is completed.

If they are all qualified, the batch shall be qualified.

6.4-2.3 Heat Resistance Test

If the heat resistance test is not qualified, the type test is not qualified. Drop test

If the drop test is not qualified, the type test is not qualified.

6.4-2.5 Hygienic Performance

If the hygienic performance is not qualified, the type test is not qualified.
