The flock adhesive must be electrically conductive. It must not only adhere to the surface to be flocked, but also must be able to adhere firmly to flock fibers. Depending on the desired quality of the material to be applied, the adhesive's washing, abrasion and oil resistance may also need to be high. Paint can be mixed into the adhesive. In this way, with an adhesive color more suitable for the flock color, the visual problems that may arise from the material color are eliminated.
If adhesive application will be made by spraying method, the places where flock powders should not be stuck should be masked.
The surface to be flocked must be such that it cannot absorb the adhesive. A pre-glue primer application may be required for such materials. For example, materials such as wood, sponge, paper, cardboard are risky materials in terms of glue absorbency.
The adhesive surface is thick enough to be flocked; it should also be thin enough not to provide fluidity. This ratio was calculated as one-tenth of the flock length.
