HydroGraphics | Immersion Printing | Water Transfer Printing | Camo Dipping
What is HydroGraphics | Water Transfer Printing?
Hydrographics has several generic names. Some of the names are Water Transfer Printing, Immersion Printing, Camo dipping, and many more. You might ask what can Hydrographics be applied too? The answer is nearly any 3-d object that is made from Plastic, wood, glass, metal & rubber. A general rule of thumb is if it can be painted, it can be dipped. Some of the most popular items to dip are guns, bows, Automotive trim & bezels, wheels, computer cases, atv's, golf carts, and many more. Items can be shipped to us or dropped off at our Southern Missouri location for dipping.
This technology gives hunters and camouflage fans unlimited possibilities. It is nearly a proven fact that you can camo almost anything! A hunter can have nearly every tool in his/her possession camo dipped! Knives, ATV fenders, Cameras, Guns, Bows, Stands, Calls, Deer / Elk skull mounts, antlers, Dash trim, bumpers, and the list keeps going on!

The process to apply Hydrographics is pretty straight forward. It starts out with prepping the item, and then applying primer/basecoat. The customer's choice of film is then cut to size and laid on the surface of the water in a our Water Transfer Printing tank and an activator is applied to the film. After a few seconds the film turns to liquid ink and floats on the surface of the water and allows us to dip the item slowly into the ink which wraps 360 degrees around an object. Then the item is dried, and an automotive grade clear coat will go over the new finish to protect it.
A few sample pictures are shown below

Custom Paint & Dipping for your Harley
All items are coated with an automotive grade urethane clear coat to ensure maximum protection. This clear coat will protect the finish from UV rays, scratches, and most chemicals. Once the clear coat is dried the item is just as durable as a automotive paint finish. We also offer Flat, Satin or Glossy finishes on all dipped parts.
When Joshua Brack first contacted us about dipping his Dakota parts he was in his final stages of his build. Joshua brought in over 60 parts to Ozarks Hydrographics to give his interior a custom touch. We were able to match his custom exterior paint color to give him a matching carbon fiber interior. We also dipped a few of the parts in the typical Black carbon fiber print to give a nice two tone interior. Congratulations Joshua on the SEMA show, Truckin magazine, and car audio magazine write up!!
