What is hydrographic printing ?

Hydro Dipping, also known as hydrographic printing or water transfer printing, is a printing technique that uses water to transfer a printed pattern on a special film onto a three-dimensional surface, which can be more or less complex, such as a plastic, metal or ceramic object.

The process begins with printing a pattern on a PVA (polyvinyl alcohol) film that floats on water. The pattern is then activated by a chemical activator that dissolves the top layer of the PVA film, creating a floating surface of liquid ink on the water. The object to be printed is then dipped into the water, passing through the ink surface and transferring the pattern onto its surface.

How does hydrodipping work?

To keep it simple, here are the different steps in the process:

1 Preparation of the object to be painted (cleaning, sanding, etc.).
2 Application of a primer adapted to the final design, to make it more vivid.
3 Immersion of the object to be painted in the liquid where the desired pattern floats on its surface.
4 Application of a multi-layer protective varnish for high resistance (gloss, matte, soft touch...).
