Hydrographics or HydroGraphics, also known as immersion printing, water transfer printing, or, camo printing is a method of applying printed designs to three-dimensional objects. The hydrographic process can be used on metal, plastic, glass, hard woods, and various other materials.With multiple dippings, hydrographics printing can achieve full 360° coverage of the part surface, including small crevices.
What is the Process?
The process to apply hydrographics is pretty straight forward. It starts out with prepping the item, and then applying primer and basecoat. The customer's choice of film is then cut to size and laid on the surface of the water in our water transfer printing tank and an activator is applied to the film. After a few seconds the film turns to liquid ink and floats on the surface of the water and allows us to dip the item slowly into the ink which wraps 360 degrees around an object. Then the item is dried, and an automotive grade clear-coat will go over the new finish to maximize durability.
