What is Flocking
Flock is precision cut lengths of nylon fibers.
When applied by electrostatic means an attractive seamless fabric-like
coating is created which can cover almost any surface including
Aluminum, glass and plastics.
Flock has been around for years, technology and adhesives have
improved so much that we see flocking more in our daily lives, printers
use flock on T-shirts, perfume companies use flock in packaging, the
automotive industry use flock for dashboards, glove boxes, ABC pillars
and general interior components.
Almost any surface or object can be given a flock finish. The item or
area has to be coated with a glue. The flock fiber is then charged
electrostatic which causes the individual fibers to penetrate “end
on” into the adhesive. This creates a high density pile effect of up to
150,000 fibers per sq inch, which gives a perfect flock velvet finish.
RoadRallyRace Flocking Services the flocking process involves applying
short monofilament fibres, usually nylon, rayon or polyester, directly
on to a substrate that has been coated with a 2pk adhesive. The flock
process is carried out electrostatic, our flock application is both
durable and permanent.
