The Best Solution against Internal Visible Light Reflection, "VL Flock Sheet"
Meet Musou Black's inspiration, the "VL Flock Sheet." It is a rayon-based fabric that has been electrostatically flocked with a low-gloss nylon pile. It achieves a higher light-absorption rate compared to Musou Black and it can be touched!
Why VL Flock Sheet?
It's total reflectance rate in the visible light range is less than 0.5%, which is one of the lowest reflection rates among our products!
In addition, its price is lower than our Fineshut series, so it is cost effective for larger projects such as making a darkroom or as a black backdrop for photography.
However, as a drawback of the flocking process, little bits of dust may be generated due to fiber loss, so please be careful when applying it somewhere where cleanliness is a top priority or in internal parts of precision equipment. Furthermore, since it does not have infrared reflection suppressing properties, it may appear as black with a reddish tint when photographed with cameras with wide wavelength sensitivity.
- Rayon base fabric / nylon pile
- No adhesive tape
- 0.9mm ± 0.2mm
Note: 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 950 mm measurement.
In the case of wrinkles or creases, applying steam from an iron WITHOUT directly touching the material may improve its condition.
If you need longer sizes than 10 meters, please contact us for a discounted price.
* When viewed by the naked eye, each person's perception of "blackness" may differ depending on the lighting environment and other conditions.
Total reflectance values of our materials are based on the industry-standard AOI 8° index. Total reflectance is the measurement result of combining both diffuse reflection and specular reflection measurements. AOI 8° means that the light is incident at an angle of 8° from the normal.
For example, based on this index, our "Foam" series consistently absorbs light from ultraviolet to near-infrared light ranges. This performance is achieved by the uneven structure derived from the foaming process and the composition of carbon atoms blended into the resin.
We also offer a variety of fabrics. Our entry-level “VL Flock Sheet” is cost-effective and provides strong light-absorption performance in the visible light range. In contrast, our “IR Flock Sheet” provides improved ultraviolet and excellent infrared light-absorption performance, which are the weak points of the entry-level VL Flock Sheet. Our premium fabrics, Musou Black Fabric FR and Musou Black Fabric KIWAMI, are our blackest products and have the best visible-light absorbing performances. The FR variant is treated to be fire-resistant and is great for indoor use. Meanwhile, our flagship, Musou Black Fabric KIWAMI, is the World’s Blackest Fabric in the visible-light range.
Musou Black Paint's light-absorption performance will vary depending on the painting method, so please keep that in mind when applying. For best results, please apply with an air-brush.
