Flock and flex films are an important pillar in textile finishing. Many monochrome and polychrome transfers on shirts, caps, bags and more are created with the various flex films and flock films. A flex film is a thin PU or PVC film with a hot-melt adhesive layer and a transparent backing. Objects or fonts are cut into the flex foil using a cutting plotter. After removing excess elements, the flex foil is transferred to the desired textile in a transfer press. With flock foils, the process works in principle exactly the same, except that, unlike flex foils, flock foils do not consist of a single film, but of viscose flakes, which stand vertically in a carrier film and thus give the flock foil its typical soft, fluffy character. Also on the flock film there is a hot-melt adhesive layer and a carrier for easy processing in cutting plotter and transfer press.
