The manufacture of flocked surfaces can be realized in a different way. It is possible to flock both by a small manual flocker and by means of large production lines. There is a great variety of different approaches, techniques and technological decisions in this field. But all of them presuppose the obligatory sequence of certain operations.
Flocking is carried out in the following way:
Adhesive is applied on a substrate by an entire solid plate or over the pattern form.
The flock charged by the electrostatic field «gathers speed and flies» perpendicularly into the adhesive coated substrate. After drying and fixing the flock is firmly set on the substrate.
Flock surpluses are removed from the article. The flocked surfaces can be subjected to such kinds of finishing as print and embossing. The received flocked surface has a certain washability and mechanical effect resistance.
There is nothing impossible for flock.
Depending on the end product function flock can solve many problems. There is a great variety of flock applications in industry. And every day they keep appearing.
