The so-called flocking fabric is made of various types of fabrics as the base fabric, with nylon or viscose fleece planted on the front, and then steamed and washed. It has a rich suede surface, soft hand feel, bright color and unique style. This fabric has a wide range of uses. It is not only an ideal fabric for making winter women’s suits, skirts, and children’s clothing, but is also widely used in the field of home textiles. It is currently mainly used for sofas, cushions, seat cushions, etc.
Advantages and disadvantages of flocked fabrics
Currently Generally, decorative fabrics need to be treated with anti-fouling additives such as “Scokodial” and other additives. The anti-fouling effect of pure cotton may be better, but the effect of general blended fabrics is not very obvious. The common disadvantage is that it affects the original color and feel. However, flocking cloth is made of nylon material. Nylon 66 itself has certain anti-fouling properties. Coupled with the current transformation of American fiber, the anti-fouling properties of the flocked cloth produced can be said to be the best in the world. Generally, stains remaining on the cloth can be wiped clean with a cloth dampened with water. Such as ink, pencil, oil stains, etc., just add some soap to the stained surface of the cloth, and then slowly rub it in circles for three minutes to restore the status quo and keep it looking new for a long time.
The nylon 66 of flocking itself has waterproof effect. If waterproof treatment is added, the effect will be better than any cotton decorative fabric.
