So what is HydroGraphics?
Hydrographics, is also known as water transfer printing, water transfer imaging, immersion printing, hydro dipping or cubic printing and it is a method of applying various printed designs to almost any 3D object. The hydrographics process can be applied to metal, glass, plastic, hard wood and virtually any other element that can withstand submersion in water without damage.
The HydroGraphics Process
To start the process, the item that is to be printed on is thoroughly cleaned, sprayed with primer, sanded off & a base coat is applied. A polyvinyl alcohol film with the graphic image you require is then floated onto the surface of the water transfer machine. A chemical activator is then sprayed onto the vinyl film to liquidise it and to activate bonding properties to ensure adhesion.
The item is then slowly pushed and maneuvered through the floating ink layer on the surface to ensure equal coverage and the ink adheres and wraps around it. The item is then removed from the water, it's dried completely and a top coat of clear sealant is sprayed on to enhance and protect the design.
With water transfer printing we can achieve a full 360 degree coverage of the surface, all small curves and crevices are coated.
