Completed Part with Flock

An automotive customer based in Goldsboro, NC and Bowling Green, OH engaged Alpha Coatings to apply a flock to an EPDM rubber component used in automotive applications. First we pre-clean the EPDM, then it is Corona flame treated to enhance flock adhesive adhesion. Next, a 1.3 to 1.8 mils thick layer of the flocking adhesive was applied to the specified areas. Flock was then applied on our custom designed system. After oven curing the part, we conducted flock adhesion testing, and then packaged 48 parts per box, as requested by the customer.
