What is Hydrographics?
Hydrographics, also known as water transfer printing, allows you to customize virtually anything you can imagine by applying a printed pattern onto a three-dimensional object. You can use it to customize your guns, ATVs, helmets, automotive accessories, and a whole lot more. Just about any material you can imagine can be dipped, including metal, fiberglass, wood, plastic, glass and much more. If you want it customized, hydrographics is your answer.
Hydrographics is possible through a technique that involves laying a polyvinyl film on water in a large dipping tank. A special chemical, known as the activator, is added to the film, and the film turns into an ink that continues to float on the surface. How this pattern looks when applied to your object usually depends on the color of the object before it was dipped. Because of this, we can customize the color of just about all of our patterns to meet your desired look.
Your object is then slowly dipped into the tank, causing the pattern to be transferred to the object. Finally, a clear coat is applied to enhance and protect the finish. This clear coat can be matte, glossy, or satin, and helps to protect the finish from damage. It is just as durable as the clear coating used in automotive finishes.
