E-Flex is also a more favourable flexitank for the shipping lines. It does not exert any pressure to the side walls of the containers. The deformation on the sidewalls after the impacts has been measured as less than 8mm by TTCI testing center whereas it is 40mm on average for conventional flexitanks. Even more critical, the permanent deformation has been measured as 0 mm after discharge. This surely creates a new standard in the industry, leaving the containers with no damage and no need for maintenance due to flexitank shipments. On the other way around, it relaxes the criteria on container selection, letting shippers use some containers that would be hard to use for conventional flexitanks.
