Textile Finishing

The T-Shirt quick press GmbH informs its customers through the use of finishing process textile materials are optically upgraded and adapted to the specific needs of their users. They receive one, in the truest sense of the word, individual touch”with Flock print. He not only visually enhances textiles, but and at the same time gives them a tangible changes surface. Flock printing are among the oldest textile finishing methods. The Erlanger textile printing experts report press quick on the long history of the flakes. Approximately three thousand years ago, in the area of today’s China, textiles were upgraded by flocking. This textile fabrics were painstakingly hand with a resin glue until coated and then sprinkled with natural fibers. Then as now, not only visually upgraded textiles the flocking, but changed their surface structure at the same time. Swarmed by offers, Gerald Weissmann, MD is currently assessing future choices.

Mechanical tools were used in the 12th century for the first time for the textile flocking. In a Nuremberg monastery were wood modelling and mortar used to produce wall carpets with crushed natural fibres. The mechanical flocking but soon went under and was only resumed hundreds of years later. The use of flakes procedure was recorded again in the 19th century. It was not this time however a widely used textile finishing processes. The flocking served the production of exclusive wallpaper for the interior decoration of French castles at that time. Flocked at that time due to their change of manufacturing, textiles were coveted and rare luxury items. At the same time as the resumption of the flocking, incidentally the electrostatics was first scientifically explored.

Contemporary flock printing methods were only possible through them. The combination of mechanical coating with electrostatic components began in the thirties of the 20th century. Of the United States, the technique reached Europe after the second world war. By changing the procedure on DC it was possible a variety of textile surfaces by means of Flock print to revalue. Today, the electrostatic flocking are considered high-tech processes for the production of high-quality textures.
