Adhesive is applied to the T-shirt to be flocked by the screen-printing process. This may be done manually or automatically.
The flock fibres are charged in an electrical field and shot vertically into the surface which has previously been coated with adhesive.
Now the drying process follows, whereby temperature and drying time have to be adapted to the materials used.
After drying and curing, the flock has been fixed into the carrier material, and the T-shirt can be cleaned from surplus flock by the use of special cleaning equipment.
Depending on the required fastness, the final products may be resistant to washing, to cleaning and abrasion and even to light.
