Flocking

posted in: Bed Linen Dictionary | 0

Flocking is the process of depositing many small fiber particles (called flock) onto a surface. It can also refer to the texture produced by the process, or to any material used primarily for its flocked surface. Flocking of an article can be performed for the purpose of increasing its value in terms of the tactile sensation, aesthetics, color and appearance. It can also be performed for functional purposes such as insulation, slip-or-grip friction and low reflectivity.
