Infrared absorbing Flock sheet

Why the IR Flock Sheet was developed

The near-infrared sensing market has seen a remarkable increase in demand in recent years, including proximity sensors for automated driving and face recognition for smartphones. The IR absorbing Flock Sheet was developed as a material to prevent near-infrared reflection and stray light, which is necessary in this development field. By kneading carbon into the flocked pile, we succeeded in achieving a high light absorption performance not only in the visible light region, but also in the near infrared region.

The graph above shows the total reflectance rates ranging from visible light to near-infrared of 2500 nm. The IR absorbing Flock Sheet achieves a total reflectance rate of 0.5% or less in the visible to near-infrared range, which is superior to our Fineshut KIWAMI material.

 

To take advantage of its excellent near-infrared light absorption property, we propose the following applications:

  • Dark curtain material for near-infrared non-reflective darkroom
  • Background curtain for near-infrared photography
  • Pseudo-infrared calibration of near-infrared sensor
  • Masking of unwanted objects in the proximity sensor test environment
  • Anti-reflection measures during near-infrared motion capture

 However, as a drawback of the flocking process, little bits of trash and dust is generated due to hair loss, so please be careful when applying it somewhere where cleanliness is a top priority or in internal parts of precision equipment. 

Product Specifications

The IR absorbing Flock Sheet is made by flocking a durable rayon base fabric (without double-sided tape lamination). It can be used as a cloth to cover objects, or as a curtain by sewing it into a curtain shape and then hanging it.

 

Composition

・Rayon base fabric / rayon pile

 Thickness

0.9mm ± 0.2mm

 Standard Size

・950mm x 400mm

・950mm x 20m (Max Size)

Can be cut and sold in 950mm x meter increments


※There is an area of about 20mm on the corners that are non-flocked and has punch holes. This area is excluded from the effective length of the 950mm measurement. 

※In the case of wrinkles or creases, applying steam from an iron WITHOUT directly touching the material may improve its condition.

Custom Cut Services Available

We have a laser processing machine and a single punch press machine, so we can provide you custom cuts as well.

 

In addition, if you send us the parts you would like for us to apply our anti-reflective materials, we can provide services such as cut designing, processing, and pasting.
