When it comes to personalizing your belongings, you should invest in the very best quality graphics possible. Depending upon your specific goals, this could mean any manner of products. One particularly popular customization option is that of hydrographic, or “hydro”, film. This film is known for its wide array of colors and patterns as well as its bright hues and overall attractive appearance. But what can hydro film really do for you, and how does it work? At Spectrum Coating Enterprises, Inc., we have years of experience working with hydro film, and we can help answer your questions.
What is hydro film?
Hydro film is the product used in the Hydro-Graphics process and is a durable coating that is transferred to many different kinds of objects, including guns, knives and countless other items and parts. This is accomplished by using a process that consists of dipping the part into a water solution that contains the film on the surface, once dipped and dried a clear coat is applied to ensure the part is properly sealed. While hydro film might not have the same protective benefits of other coatings like Cerakote, it makes up for that relative lack with its appearance. It’s a film that serves a specific purpose and allows you to customize your items and create something truly special. At Spectrum Coating Enterprises, Inc., we are proud to offer our clients high quality and high-resolution hydro film options featuring a large variety of colors and patterns.
Benefits of Hydro Film
There are a few benefits of using hydro film to customize your item rather than a different coating. The first is, simply, its appearance. While other coatings are designed with performance in mind first and appearance second, hydro film is designed to create eye-catching colors and patterns as well as environmental camouflage for those who wish to “blend in”. The second benefit that hydrographics offer is the ability to “dip” almost anything. Hydro film can be applied to all types of substrates including plastic, fiberglass, wood, ceramics, and metal. For the most part, if the item can be submerged in water, it can be dipped.
