What Materials Can Be Hydro Dipped? What Cannot?

Hydrographics, also known as water transfer printing or water immersion, is a decorative technology that applies printed designs to various surfaces. It is widely used to decorate automobile parts, helmets, firearms, electronics, and various other items. Many customers will ask what materials can be used for water immersion and what materials cannot be used. Today, we are here to give you relevant answers.

Importance Of Choosing The Right Materials

Choosing the right material is crucial to the success of water immersion. Choosing the right material can give the items after water immersion a better appearance and other functions (such as protecting the surface of the item, extending the service life of the item, etc.). Here’s how important it is to choose the right materials:

1. Surface treatment: Some materials require special treatment before being immersed in water, such as polishing and priming. This is mainly to achieve better adhesion between the film and the object and prevent peeling problems later.

2. Durability: Different materials have different durability of items after water immersion. For example, choosing water-resistant materials can avoid moisture infiltration or damage during the water transfer process.

3. Chemical adaptability: In the water transfer process, activators and other chemicals will be used, so it is important to choose materials that are compatible with chemical properties. Suitable materials can prevent undesirable situations (such as patterns) from occurring during the transfer process. discoloration, poor adhesion).

4. Temperature resistance: Some materials may be more resistant to high and low temperatures and environmental factors than others. In addition, water transfer printing needs to be operated at a temperature of 25-30 degrees, so the temperature resistance of the material is also crucial. The right materials can ensure that items perform optimally over time in a variety of environments.

Understanding Hydro Dipping Materials

Although most materials are suitable for water transfer printing, some materials are not suitable for water transfer printing. 

1. What Materials Are Suitable For Hydro Dipping?

Metal, Plastic (PVC, PP, PE, PET, ABS, ACRYLIC), Ceramics, Fiberglass, Glass, Rubber, Hardwoods, and other materials, these materials can be transferred using water transfer printing.

2. What Materials Are NOT Suitable For Hydro Dipping?

Some water-absorbent materials are not suitable for water transfer printing. For example, materials with high porosity such as paper and fabric cannot be used for water transfer printing.

Conclusion

In general, the hydro-immersion process can be used if the item can be immersed in water and can be painted using traditional techniques.
