Condoms have come a long way and thanks to peopleâ€™s acceptance, the demand and growth of condoms higher than ever. People actually want to use condoms to enhance their sexual experience and hence it is imperative to take extra care and precaution while making condoms. A big manufacturing company can easily produce over a million condoms each day.
Condoms are considered medical device and hence they have to meet certain requirements set irrespective of who is manufacturing it. Now, we will take you into the process of how these condoms are made.
Today condoms are made in many shapes, sizes, and styles, thanks to innovation and technology. There are strict government regulations that the makers should keep in mind, because these condoms are necessary to avoid unintended pregnancies and STDs.
They are called rubbers because majority of them are made from natural latex â€“ a strong and flexible material that comes from rubber tree.
Custom made moulds are used to produce wide variety of condom types. The glass moulds are run on a dipping line containing latex a couple of times to make sure a strong thin film of latex is produced.
Then the condoms are removed from the moulds, which are washed and dried for another round of dipping. Next, the condoms are washed in a solution that gives silky and smooth feel. Each condom should go through electronic test prior to packaging. To do this condom, is loaded over stainless steel shaft and electrified.
If the circuit is completed then it is defected and doesnâ€™t make the cut. Meanwhile, the condoms that get through electronic tests are placed in a final protective wrapper and simultaneously lubricated to maximise performance, pleasure, and protection.
Two opposing foils are heat sealed together forming a wrapper. The wrapper material is carefully selected to meet stringent quality standards. The next round of test involves opening of condom from wrapper and put under a test called the â€˜air inflation testâ€™. The condoms are inflated and tested for elasticity and strength.
The condoms are then filled with water to make sure they are free from defects. These condoms are vigorously worked by hands in what is called â€˜roll and needâ€™ process. In the next step, condoms are stretched to see how far it can enlarge and how strong it is. Most condoms are stretched over 750% of their original width.
Finally, the condoms enter the chemical lab where the in-house scientists check the products. Here the condoms are extensively tested for consistency and quality standards. Once the condoms are tested, they are packaged and sent across the world.
Itâ€™s pretty cool to know that you are getting such a safe and effective product, right? Sure, you will be more appreciative about the product the next time you grab them.
