Flock improves the look of suede fabrics

Flock is a textile surface with the electrostatic bonding of polyamide fibers which are fine and very short, giving the fabric the appearance of suede.

Tannic acids are widely used for the electrostatic activation of nylon fibers together with aluminum salts.

Silvateam has developed a wide range of products called Tannin Flock, to meet the requirements of its customers. Tannin Flock is made of tannic acid, in powder form, for the activation of polyamide and polyester flock. Their main characteristics are the good conductivity and stabilization of electrostatic activity.
