FLOCK POWDER SUPPLIERS PLEASE!!
« on: June 06, 2019, 03:36:30 PM »
 we are Looking for a NEW flock powder supplier. Who do you buy from? Ok last week we received 30 lbs of black  Flock powder and it was clumpy and moist so it wouldn't shake in the auto flocker. We had to hand flock 500 units front and back.. What a mess. We had it on press 15 minutes after it arrived. We contacted the well known supplier and they wont take responsibility or replace it.. We spent 25k on powder last year( I know that's not much compared to the big guns on here but still its enough) Please recommend some suppliers.. Thanks in advance

Rick;

Put it in a small room with a dehumidifier.  I remember those issues from when I worked for someone else and that's what I did to make it manageable.  We had problems with suppliers as well so in the mean time you might try that.

Not an immediate fix, but perhaps the situation could also be aided by the addition of silica gel packs in the bag.

Thank you for the responses..I finally got it all worked out with them and they are issuing a credit for the bad product. That saved the relationship. We are now getting it bagged up in 5 lb bags and only ordering by the job to help reduce the variables. We do use a humidity tester. Thanks again
