What is hydroimaging you may ask?

Hydrographics is the process of using a water transfer film to transfer a design onto your item by submersing the item to be printed though the film into the water. This lets JTS Hydro to print onto any 3D surface that will accept paint.

Water Transfer Printing (also known as water immersion printing, hydrograghic printing, hydro dipping, hydro imaging and fluid imaging) is a 3D decorating process where elaborate graphics like wood grain, Carbon Fiber, Camouflage, Geometrical designs, etc… are applied to a product surface.

The Water Transfer Printing process is extensively used to decorate items that range from entire all-terrain vehicles and car dashboards to small items like bike helmets or other automotive trim. Films can be applied to all types of substrates including plastic, fiberglass, wood, ceramics, and metal. For the most part, if the item can be dipped in water, the hydro-graphic process can be used.Many automotive manufactures now use this process.

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 this dries, a base-coat paint is applied which controls the hue of the pattern. So, for instance, wood grain prints often utilize a brown base-coat and many camouflage patterns use a neutral base.

After the base-coat is applied, the item is ready for decorating. The film is 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.
