smartFLOCK´s capacity amounts up to 20,000 pieces per hour.
Millions of short cut fibers are electrostatically charged in an electrical field and injected vertically onto the base material which has been coated with an adhesive.
The flocking fibers are permanently attached to the adhesive-coated base material in the subsequent fixing process.
For flocking fibers various materials can be used, e.g. polyamide, polyester, acrylic, lyocell, viscose or blends; flat surfaces and three-dimensional objects of almost any base materials can be flocked with these fibers.
Any type of plastics and renewable raw materials can be used as base materials.
The fiber length ranges between 0.35 mm and 1.5 mm and fiber fineness is between 1.7 and 6.7 dtex.
Besides commercial flock fibers we use functional fibers which consist of the natural raw material cellulose and were equipped with functional additives (e.g. minerals, vitamins).
This imparts to the fibers skin-care, skin-protective and antibacterial properties which are active for an entire product life.
The advantages of our functional flock fibers are:
- Consisting of the natural raw material cellulose
- Containing essential trace elements
- With skin-care, skin-protective and antibacterial effect
- Equipped with polishing and abrasive ingredients
- Pure-white fiber
- Can be dyed in all colors
- Permanent effect (functional permanence)
- Patented technology
