What is Flocking?

Flocking is the coating of a substrate with nylon fibers using high voltage, electro-static equipment.

Each individual nylon flock fiber is just a fraction of a millimeter thick. Nylon is used because of it's excellent durability and strength, a high melting point (220c) and superior lasting qualities. It is an ideal candidate for application which requires abrasive resistance and resiliency.

An electrostatic charge is generated that propels the fibers at a high velocity onto the adhesive coated substrate. This causes the flocking fibers to penetrate and imbed in the adhesive at right angles to substrate. This forms a high density, uniform flock coating or layer.

This dense and durable finish has excellent anti-glare properties. Hence its use on WRC car interiors.
