The application of fine (natural or synthetic) particles to adhesive coated surfaces. Like thermographic printing, flocking is usually done by the application of a high-voltage electric field that causes flock material to fly vertically onto a surface attaching to a previously applied glue. Often used for clothing or apparel services. The flocking process can magically transform a plain, flat surface into a rich, warm, intensely-colored, comfortable, and visually compelling texture.
