There are over 70 million nylon 6.6 fibres per m². The fibres are solid in construction - 6.6 is the best option for flocked flooring as it has superior wear characteristics and abrasion resistance to other yarns. These fibres are matt in surface finish to reduce visibility of soiling and compression, e.g. in high traffic areas.
A waterproof PVC adhesive is used, which bonds the flock to the backing whilst providing an impermeable layer to resist moisture.
A glass fibre net is used to enhance tensile strength and tear resistance. It also adds 'lay flat' properties to the finished sheet product.
