What is hydro dipping?

Also known as hydrographics, hydro dipping is the art of printing a layer of graphics onto three-dimensional surfaces. This includes both interior and exterior parts of an automobile.

Hydro dipping is a durable method, with the finished result being extremely robust. Just like paint, it can last for years at a time.

Using the latest in hydro dipping technology, the process involves submerging the selected design in the water. Here it is sprayed with chemicals that activate the print, serving as a bonding agent to dissolve it. The area that will have the print applied onto it will be treated before dipping it into the tub with the selected design.

During this process, the design covers the item, sticking to it. Then it is removed and rinsed off to remove the chemical residue.

Hydro dipping offers extraordinary design options, changing the customisation game completely. Our team can help bring your vehicle to life and protect engine components, intake manifolds, transmission housings and more.
