Flocking is the application of the fiber flock in an electrostatic field on a prepared surface and then it creates the simulation of textile coating. Flocking is a relatively new but very promising emerging technology. Flocking technology has a thousand uses!
Flocking happen continuous and selective. The flock may be covered by any objects on the form, material, structure (flat and volumetric). When solid flocking glue covered the entire surface plateruena object completely. When selective (or partial) of the flocking adhesive is coated only part (or parts) of the object surface by using stencil methods.
The main areas of application of the flock are decorative and technological finishes. Obtained by flocking velvet smooth, beautiful and durable. Flock can be applied to any material of any hardness: plastic, metal, wood, glass, fabric, paper and many others. Efficiently dealt flok gives the coatings, in addition to the purely decorative properties, new functionalities.
Two-millimeter flock can replace polystyrene with a thickness of 10 mm is used where possible contact with hot or very cold surface (electric pole). Flock prevents condensation (flokiruût tube conditioning).
The average value of sound absorption flocked surface is 13%, so the flock has found wide application in the finishing of professional recording studios, music rooms, rooms for home theaters, car interiors, speaker.
Through the use of quality adhesives and flock treated according to the surface material are highly resistant to various damages. Technology is used in the manufacture of floor coverings, the guide profiles for automotive glass, Shoe suede, all kinds of mats in shops, cars, houses.
Flocked surface keeps svetonosnost for 6-7 years.
Flock is thelovebreezemhm material, the ignition temperature of various types of flock 400-550 degrees;
Resistance to weathering
Flock, retains its properties when exposed to different weather conditions, is used as a protective coating from deposition of shells for the bottoms of yachts; the Flock prevents condensation (flokiruût tube conditioning).
Flock used for padding under carpets to cover priborovich mats. The abradability of the coating is negligible: after 10,000 cycles the friction - only 23 mg (felt 732 mg). Chemical resistance - flocked surface is resistant to mild solvents and suitable for dry cleaning.
The function of the seal
Flock widely used for production of rubber, aluminium sealing profiles and alignment tolerances.
To clean common detergents to their original properties, can be cleaned using weak solvents (white spirit, petrol).
Protection with the help of flock
Many things require protection and careful handling (for example: the bottom of the ceramic ashtray on the painted countertops). Flock can take care of that.
Flocking you will need:
The types of blokatorov
Planiruyushei equipment generates (produces) a high voltage negative electrostatic field that is necessary for flocking. Flokatory are manual type EASY SET and stationary type FS MAX. Also, there are specific lines for applying flock on the power unit ELEKTROSTAT ET 100, for example for the manufacture of flokirovanie Wallpaper (other products they do not produce). The advantage of manual blokatorov is almost unlimited opportunity to the flocking of various types of surface from flat to 3D objects.
The types of flock
Flock is a fine pile – like dust. In Russia the range of the flock represented the Swiss brand SwissFlock (polyamide and viscose long 0,5 mm, 0,7 mm,1 mm and 2 mm). Polyamide is a synthetic, has the greatest resistance to mechanical stress, hairs that are always in the perpendicular direction from the surface. Rayon is more delicate, less resistant to physical stress the material.
The glue, or rather the polymer flocking - Russian production. The line of AFA is available for a variety of jobs: as on hard surfaces (plastic, wood, metal, glass, etc.), and works for screen printing on soft surfaces (cloth, paper, etc). Inside the line is divided in subgroups. Methods of application vary depending on the brand of glue: brush, roller, dipping, spraying, etc.
