UNIQUE PROCESS





Hydrographics or Hydro-dipping, also known as immersion printing, water transfer printing, water transfer imaging, or cubic printing, is a method of applying printed designs to three-dimensional surfaces. The Hydorgraphic process can be used on METAL, PLASTIC, GLASS, HARD WOOD, FIBERGLASS, ALUMINUM, SUBBER, SILICON, and various other materials. Also commonly know as "HYDRO-DIPPING"  due to the fact that the parts are dipped/immersed in water.



The Water Transfer Printing process is extensively used to decorate items that range from entire all-terrain vehicles and car dashboards, boats, motorcycles, privet jets, to small items like bike helmets or other automotive trim. Films can be applied to all types of substrates including METAL, CERAMICS, PLASTIC and it is VERY DURABLE TO HEAT. For the most part, if the item can be dipped in water and can be painted using traditional techniques then the hydrographic priting process can be used.
