Hydro dipping may also be referred to as Hydro graphics, water transfer printing, hydro imaging, Camo dipping, aqua graphics, and hydro printing just to name a few of the other generic names.
Hydro dipping is a technique that involves laying a poly vinyl film on water in a large dipping tank. A chemical activator is then sprayed over the surface level of the water, where the poly vinyl film is floating and thus the film becomes ink floating on the surface of the water. Your object is then slowly dipped into the tank and like magic the pattern is transferred. The final step in the process is the application of a clear coat which will not only enhance, but also protect the finish of whatever it is you are having dipped. This coat can be matte, glossy, or satin, and helps to protect the finish from all sorts of damage. It’s about as durable as the clear coating used in automotive finishes
