Florida Finishing Hydro-Graphics ... The NEXT Level of Decoration.
You’ve heard it by many names: hydrographic printing, 3D printing, fluid imaging, immersion printing, or simply water transfer printing. Whatever the name, the processes are the same. Using the water transfer printing process, you can transfer high-definition 4-color graphic patterns to many complex three-dimensional shapes.
In most cases, you can transfer the film’s inks to steel, aluminum, plastic, wood, and many other substrates. Common patterns are wood grain, carbon fiber, and camouflage. For years, the automotive industry has embraced this technology and process to apply decorative trim throughout vehicle interiors. Early on, the sporting goods industry found that water transfer printing was ideal to apply camouflage patterns to gun stocks and bows.
Applications may include but by no means limited to: Point-of-Sales items, Communication devices, Medical & Business equipment, Laptop, PC & Accessories, Test Instruments, Aerospace Interiors, Network systems, Weapon systems, Audio control systems, Navigation systems, Consumer electronics, Gaming controllers & boxes, Taxidermy, Entertainment components, Automotive Interiors, etc.
