Clean the surface of the item to be flocked. It must be grease and wax free to enable the adhesive to stick properly. Silicon oils and waxes are difficult to remove so the surface should be lightly scrubbed with scotch bright and a liberal coating of solvent. While the solvent is still wet, wipe the surface clean with a dry cloth, so that you ‘float’ the contaminants off the surface and catch them in the cloth.
Usually it is easiest if you can hang your work pieces from a rail in the gluing booth and then from a metal rail in the flocking area and then from a rail in the drying/curing area. Suspend the item to be flocked by wire hooks. These hooks can then be used to hold the item as it is transferred from glue to flock to drying. When applying the adhesive, ensure that there is a continuous coating of adhesive on the surface to be flocked and that the adhesive extends to touch the wire hook. Connect the earth lead of the flock application equipment to the metal rail in the flocking area. This will then ensure that the surface to be flocked is earthed through the wire hook to the rail to the flocking equipment.
Now apply the adhesive ensuring that you get a good even coverage about 0.2mm thick. A good sign that you have applied enough adhesive is that the whole surface is wet and glistening once you have finished. REMEMBER you must flock into wet adhesive !!! If the adhesive starts to go tacky before you have finished flocking the flock will rub off easily.
Hang the glued item in the flocking area ensuring that the surface is earthed.
