Welcome to Cutting-Edge Hydrographics

What is hydrographics?

Water Transfer Printing (also known as hydrograghics, immersion printing, camo-dipping, hydro imaging and cubic printing) is a surface decorating process  like wood grain, carbon fiber, camouflage, etc…The Water Transfer Printing process is used to decorate a range of items from entire all-terrain vehicles and car dashboards to small items like bike helmets or automotive trim. Films can be applied to all types of surfaces to include plastic, fiberglass, wood, ceramics, and metal. Mostly, if the item can be dipped in water, the hydro-graphic process can be used.

The process utilizes a water-soluble film that contains the printed patterns. The film dissolves in the water and leaves the ink on the surface. In the typical process, the item to be printed is first coated with a primer or an adhesion promoter. After drying, a base-coat paint is applied which controls the tone of the pattern. Once the base-coat is dry, the item is ready for dipping. The film is laid on top of the water surface and activated. The item is then dipped into the water and the ink wraps around it. It is then washed and painted with a clear topcoat.


Other Terms used to describe the Hydrographics process are: Water Transfer Printing, Hydro Dipping, Hydro graphics, Camo Dipping, Cubic printing, Hydro Imaging, Hydrographic Dipping, Hydro Printing.
