What is Hydro Dipping?

Hydro Dipping goes by several industry monikers, including:

  • Hydrographic printing
  • Immersion printing
  • Water transfer imaging
  • Cubic printing
  • Fluid imaging
  • and others…

Simply stated, Hydro Dipping uses water to transfer an image onto an object.

Images range anywhere from a from a “sticker bomb” look, a wood grain finish, or the very popular carbon fiber pattern.

Pro Coat Fabrication has a large selection of graphics you can choose from, ensuring we can fit the look you’re going for.

Hydro Dipping Process

Hydro Dipping is a “water transfer printing” process used to apply highly customized, printed designs to the surface of an object.

The process utilizes a water-soluble “transfer film” consisting of a printed design, which is evenly distributed (or transferred) onto an object when immersed in a heated, water-filled Hydro Dip tank.

In order to properly hydro dip your product, Pro Coat Fabrication employs a meticulous process.

Hydro Dipping typically includes the following steps:

  • Prep your object
    • Clean and degrease
    • Rough the surface
    • Mask off areas you don’t wish to hydro dip
  • Spray on a primer
  • Apply a base coat
  • Fill the hydro dip tank with heated water
  • Lay transfer film on water’s surface
  • Apply an activator to liquify the transfer film
  • Dip your object
  • Wash away any adhesive residue
  • Air dry
  • Apply clear coat

And presto! You’re in Hydro Dipping heaven!
