The hidroimpresion is a technique of decoration that is used in many sectors of the industry. Can be applied to any type of material by using a few sheets of hidroimpresión that conform to the shape of the object to decorate. Is foil extends over a bucket of water and applied to it a trigger. Once this is done we will introduce the piece to decorate in the water slowly. The sheet of water transfer printing will adhere to the surface permanently. Once you have done this process is allowed to dry the piece. To give it a final finish quality can be lacar with matte lacquer or gloss.

Note: to be good is very important to know about which colour of surface you apply the hidroimpresion, for example, if our housing rearview mirror is white then we can apply the majority of films water transfer printing, except those of carbon. Please note that the original color of the piece, it will always look a little so that it has to be a color that favors. Below we cite the examples that are most common:
- Piece color: white-we can apply sheets of drawings, wood, decoration in general.
- Piece color black: it is not recommended to use them since they are a few colors are very muted.
- Piece grey: it is very well with carbon.
- Piece wood color: it is very good with wood.
In our kits hidroimpresion give you a spray can of white or grey (to choose) so you can paint the piece to decorate anything before and it looks perfect. We also attach a boat spray lacquer matt or gloss (your choice).
