Professional Hydrographic & Cerakote Services

What is Hydro Dipping?

Hydro dipping (also known as water transfer printing) is a method of applying printed designs to three-dimensional surfaces.
The hydrographic process can be used on metal, plastic (PVC, PP, PE, PET, ABS, ACRYLIC and so on). Your object will go through the entire painting process: surface preparation, priming, painting, A PVA hydrographic film, which has been printed on with a desired graphic image using latex or pigment-based inks, is carefully placed on the water’s surface in the dipping tank after preparation. The film is then sprayed with an activator solution to dissolve the film and return it to its fluid state. Once dipping is begun, the surface tension of the water will allow the pattern to curve around any shape. Any remaining residue is then rinsed off thoroughly. Once dipping is complete the ink adheres to the desired surface. It is then allowed to dry. Once drying is complete it is then sprayed with a clear coat of your choice. Once clear coat is applied your object is now complete.
