Watch The Process

Gun-hydrographics

The water transfer printing or hydrographic process is used extensively to decorate items that range from entire all-terrain vehicles and car dashboards to small items like bike helmets or other automotive trim. Films can be applied to all types of substrates, including plastic, fiberglass, wood, ceramics, and metal. For the most part, if the item can be dipped in water and can be painted using traditional techniques, then the hydrographic printing process can be used.

In the process, the substrate piece to be printed first goes through the entire painting process: surface preparation, priming, painting, and clear coating. After painting but before clear coating, the part is ready to be processed. A polyvinyl alcohol hydrographic film, which has been gravure-printed with the graphic image to be transferred, is carefully placed on the water’s surface in the dipping tank. The clear film is water-soluble and dissolves after applying an activator solution. Once dipping has begun, the surface tension of the water will allow the pattern to curve around any shape. Any remaining residue is then rinsed off. The ink has already adhered and will not wash off. It is then allowed to dry.

The adhesion is a result of the chemical components of the activator solution softening the base coat layer and allowing the ink to form a bond with it.
