Hydrographics, put simply, is a method of applying printed designs to three-dimensional surfaces. Hydrographics is also known as water transfer printing, water transfer imaging, hydro-dipping, cubic printing and numerous other titles. This process can be used on various surfaces, including metal, plastic, glass and hardwoods, with the end result looking amazing, as you can see.

The hydrographic process has become extremely popular in recent years, but has been around since 1982. The water transfer printing process is used to decorate countless three-dimensional items. These range from entire vehicles in large hydrographic tanks, to small items such as bike helmets, alloy wheels or other automotive trim. Films can be applied to numerous types of material including plastic, fibreglass, wood, ceramics and metal. In essence, 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 item first goes through the entire painting process. After painting, but before clear coating, the part is ready for hydrographic application. A polyvinyl hydrographic film, which has been printed with the graphics image, 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. The item is then dipped and the pattern or design applied perfectly to the three dimensional object.

Impact Coatings are experts in this process and have 100s of ready-made designs for you to choose from.
