Custom Flocking Capabilities

At National Velour, we are an industry leader in the field of custom flocking for aesthetic and functional applications. Applied fibers have a diverse array of uses and can be found on products ranging from packaging and medical devices to fine fragrances and clothing items. We use natural fibers such as cotton as well as numerous synthetic fibers including nylon, rayon, and acrylic. Flocked materials can be engineered with specialty decorative characteristics including glitter, foil stamped, multi-tone, embossed, and printable surfaces.

The adhesive used to adhere the fibers to the substrate is a critical factor in the quality of the overall product. Medical grade, dry cleaning compatible, industrial grade, water resistant, and even scented adhesives can be chosen to create the proper bond for any given specific application. The list of substrates we work with is as diverse as the fiber choices we offer and includes paper, vinyl, Tyvek, magnetic film, and inflatable materials, among others. In many cases, customers contact us with an application in mind, and our experienced team of professionals can recommend the ideal substrate, adhesive, and fiber combination for their desired end use and budget.
