What is Flocking

Flocking is the application of thousands of nylon fibres, which are electrostatically charged and applied to an earthed adhesive,The fibres are vertically attracted into the adhesive, therefore giving a fabric like finish to the object.

Nylon Flock is the most widely used, and most are heat resistant to 220 degrees. It comes in a variety of lengths, thicknesses and colours, ranging from 0.25mm to 10mm. A shorter flock will give a velvet like finish, and is neat and easy to care for. A longer flock provides a bristle like finish, and is known to be used for hardwearing surfaces that are used often.
