Flocking (texture)
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Flocking is a type of texture applied to a surface.

"Flocking" is a decoration process that enhances the way a wide variety of products are experienced by making ordinary surfaces seem far more magical and special. "Flocking" is the process of depositing millions of little individual cut fiber particles (called "flock") onto the surface of an article for the purpose of increasing its value in terms of the tactile sensation, aesthetics, color and appearance, and/or a wide variety of other functions--such as insulation, slip-or-grip friction, etc.

Flocking is used in many ways. One example is in modeling, where a grassy texture may be applied to a surface to make it look more realistic. Another is on a Christmas tree,which may be flocked with a fluffy white spray to simulate snow. Holiday Sales, Inc. in Rockford, MN USA makes Christmas tree flock. Other things may be flocked to give them a velour texture such as t-shirts or wallpaper. Many rally cars also have a flocked dashboard. This is when the dash is covered in a material to stop the sun reflecting on the windscreen.

Flocking is the application of fine particles to adhesive coated surfaces. The majority of flocking done worldwide uses finely cut natural or synthetic fibers. A flocked finish imparts a decorative and/or functional characteristic to the surface. The variety of materials that are applied to numerous surfaces through different flocking methods create a wide range of end products. The flocking process is used on items ranging from retail consumer goods to products with high technology military applications. Historians claim that flocking can be traced back to circa 1000 BC, when the Chinese used resin glue to bond natural fibers to fabrics. Fiber dust was strewn onto adhesive coated surfaces to produce flocked wall coverings in Germany during the middle ages. In France, flocked wall coverings became popular during the reign of Louis XIV. Flocking in the automotive industry is used for decorative purposes and may be applied to a number of different materials. Flocking is currently being utilized by the automobile industry in a wide range of locations. West Michigan Flocking in South Haven, MI is the largest provider of flocking for the automobile industry.

i use multi-purpose 3M...red and black can.

i also don't cover the bottom....why would you? this makes it easier and you can just "V" in the three flaps that stick over the edge for the ends.

i will be the first to admit, i am not the best and carpeting a box.....it's something i am still working on.
