Did you know that there is a good chance that the floor mats in your car have a much used but often overlooked component made right here in Leominster, MA?
We are talking about automotive floor mats with anti slip flock technology. These cut and finished fibers are applied to the substrate in such a way that when the floor mats of your car are in place they will not slip as you get into and out of your car. They create extra friction when pressure is applied and yet lift off effortlessly when you need to remove the mats for cleaning. This most often overlooked feature we take for granted each day as many of us commute to work and back home. This technology has doubtless saved people from injury and even accidents on the road. Can you imagine even driving your car without these types of floor mats?
These floor mats come in a wide variety of patterns and colors. Company logos are even printed in flock to add to the anti slip surface texture. Specific patterns are designed to create an anti slip surface on the bottom of your floor mat ensuring they stay in place and do the job they were designed for.
This cross-section shows the individual fibers of the car carpet that will interlock with the fibers of the anti slip mats to produce the anti-slip effect.
Much of the process for designing and making floor mats for automobiles includes selecting the proper materials for the job at hand. Materials must be weather resistant as well as easy to clean in order to extend the life of the product. #flocktech #flockexperts
