Apart from optical characteristics, the application of flock has a large number of technical characteristics. Various technical characteristics are used for problem solving.
Protection from condensation & heat
Absorption of light
Parts which rub each other make noise (Squeak). By using flock, various rubbing parts move smoothly and quietly against each other. Flock is also a solution for heavy loads.
sliding roof parts, elevator parts, machine parts.
Flock realises a huge increase in surface area which delays heating. Condensation occurs at a temperature difference of 14 degrees compared to the ambient temperature. Flock can ensure a delay in temperature rise. Burning of parts which are otherwise too hot is thus countered.
copiers, air conditioning, sauna construction, machine parts
Light hardly reflects because of the raised fibres. This creates an intense colour perception. When using black flock, light is absorbed to the utmost.
rally sport, cameras, copiers
Absorption of sound
Optical & tactile enrichment
Flocking creates an increase in surface area. The raised fibres provide a 3D surface with air between the fibres. This makes for a soundproofing layer. In addition, flock is highly suitable to apply onto soundproofing material (foam) and to enhance the proofing characteristics. Noise, for example caused by vibration, is also eliminated by flock.
acoustic items, automotive storage compartments, cutlery
A flocked product is highly appealing. A "velvet" look and feel makes for a more luxurious product experience. A large diversity of colours provides a unique identity. Items consisting of different materials become a whole after being treated with flock.
plaster replacements, interior parts, printing, (book)covers, greeting cards
By using flock on the proper material, the correct thickness and length, products that are easily damaged can be transported and packaged without damaging them.
Moving parts are protected from scratches by flock.
conveyors, window rubbers, packaging materials
