Hydro Dipping Printing Process

How does the Hydro Dipping Process work?

The hydro dipping process is very diverse and specialist equipment is required.

*please note that the below process is a simplified version of the hydro dipping application. Certain stages have not been included.

  • Repair and prime if applicable
  • Prepare your item for paint and apply base colour of your choice
  • Float a special film with your chosen design in a specialist hydro tank and carry out the dipping process
  • Once dry, apply your choice of lacquer (gloss, satin or matt)

Below is a list of some of the materials that can be used in the hydro dipping process:

  • metal
  • plastic
  • wood
  • fibreglass
  • glass
  • ceramics and hardwood
  • carbon fibre

We also offer a range of custom coatings. The finishes on offer include, but are not limited to:

  • kandies
  • marbleisers
  • pearlescents
  • filp paints
  • chrome and metal effects
  • prismatics
  • fluorescent
  • nite glow
  • soft touch

As you will see from looking around our website, water transfer printing is very diverse, its potential applications are almost endless. We aim to provide the highest standard; the quality of our hydro dipping is unrivalled. Check out our hydro dipping gallery to see some of our work.

Our selected areas of focus include custom carbon fibre for automotive, protective coatings for military, marine, aviation, sporting goods, electrical and household, general custom coatings for industrial and medical sectors.

We pride ourselves in customer care and satisfaction. If you would like ideas for water transfer printing designs, or you have a particular requirement, big or small, please do not hesitate to contact us.
