Hydrographics, also known as water transfer printing, is a way of transfering a pattern or design on to almost any 3D shape that can be painted such as helmets, motorcycle part, car parts, paint ball guns, signs, computer cases, the choice is almost endless! The parts are prepped and base painted then dipped through a printed film that is laid on water and the ink within the print is transferred onto the object.
Carbon fiber hydro dip film gives your object a neat carbon look which is also long-lasting. It can be effectively used for any kind of 3D surface, ranging from glass to wood, from metal to steel. In case you get bored of the design and think about changing it, then carbon fiber film can be peeled off from the object by dipping the object in aerosol for a few minutes.
The advantage of the hydrographics process over screen printing, spraying, airbrushing or vinyl wrapping is it is possible to get very consistent pattern coverage over very irregular shaped objects not possible by any other method.
Once the part is cleaned and dry it is then lacquered with a two pack lacquer for a gloss or matt protective finish which makes it as tough and durable as an automotive paint finish. All work is prepped to the highest standard using the best materials and lacquered with a high quality two pack lacquer.
As modern and innovative these films are; they are also considered to be an economical way of giving a new aesthetic look to your favorite objects.
How to Apply Fiber Carbon Film?
- Cut a small piece of fiber film.

- Gently place the fiber film on water.
- Spray a thin layer of activator.
