How Hydro Dipping Works


Submerging in Style

Hydro Dipping involves submerging car parts in a water bath. A thin layer of film, available in various colours and patterns, including our popular carbon fibre hydro dipping option, is applied to the water’s surface.

The Activator Solution Magic

Our skilled technicians then spray the submerged surface with an activator solution, making the film malleable and activating its adhesives. This enables careful and slow raising of the submerged car parts through the film, completely covering them.

Protecting with Precision

To ensure long-lasting results, we meticulously add a clear lacquer to seal the hydro-dipped areas. This protective layer safeguards the parts against UV damage and minor knocks, preventing fading and damage over time.

Hydro dipping, also known as water transfer printing or hydrographics, is a decorative process that allows you to apply intricate patterns or designs to three-dimensional objects. It involves transferring a printed design from a water-soluble film onto the surface of an item through a dipping process.

Hydro dipping is versatile and works on various materials such as plastics, metals, ceramics, wood, and even glass. It is commonly used for customizing automotive parts, electronics, sports equipment, and household items.

The carbon fiber effect is one of the most sought-after designs in hydro dipping. To achieve this effect, a carbon fiber pattern is printed on a special hydrographic film. The object to be decorated is then submerged into the water tank, and the film dissolves, leaving the carbon fiber pattern adhered to the surface of the object.

Yes, there are various carbon fiber patterns with different weave styles and colors to choose from. You can find classic black carbon fiber, as well as colors like blue, red, and white, offering a wide range of customization options.

Yes, one of the advantages of hydro dipping is its ability to conform to complex shapes and uneven surfaces easily. The film adheres evenly to irregular contours, making it an ideal method for decorating items with intricate designs.

Yes, when done correctly and with proper finishing, hydro dipping results in a durable and long-lasting decoration. Applying a clear top coat or protective finish helps to protect the design from scratches, fading, and general wear and tear.

No, hydro dipping cannot be done as a DIY project, it requires some practice and the right equipment. However many hydro dipping kits are available, which work as a starting point for amateurs.

The environmental impact of hydro dipping depends on the disposal methods of the film and chemicals used. It is essential to follow local regulations and adopt eco-friendly practices to minimize any negative environmental effects. Using water-based films and biodegradable chemicals can be a more environmentally conscious approach.
