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 means of a few sheets of hidroimpresión that conform to the shape of the object to decorate. Is sheet extends over a bucket of water and is applied to an activator. Once that is done you will introduce the piece to decorate in the water slowly. The sheet of water transfer printing will adhere to the surface permanently. Once done, this process will dry the piece. To give it a final finish quality can be lacquering with lacquer matt or gloss.
This type of sheeting hidroimpresion special the we can find of all types, models and sizes. Here are some examples:
Water transfer printing
The hidroimpresion or also called water transfer printing was up to now a technique for professional use only. Currently there are a few kits application so that you can perform yourself:
Does the hidroimpresion can apply it any person?
Yes, we sell a kit hidroimpresion by which you can decorate any room in the house. You only need to buy a plastic bucket that has some depth to it and fill it with warm water (30°C). The price of these plastic buckets you can find it in any store for 8-12€. If you do not want to buy a bucket we can always use the sink for the water transfer printing.
In the kit hidroimpresion you'll be able to find everything you need: sheets of water transfer printing, spray activator, spray lacquer, spray paint, sandpaper, gloves, and mask.
Steps to apply hidroimpresion
When you buy any kit water transfer printing we give a manual application so that you do not leave any doubt. Anyway we recommend to visit our YouTube channel where you can find a full video of how to perform this new technique step-by-step.
- Clean the piece to decorate with hidroimpresion.
- Fill a bucket of water at about 30°C.
- Tape off the edges of the sheet of hidroimpresion with masking tape.
- Put the sheet of hidroimpresión on the water. If there is any bubble to slide it to the ends with the tip of your finger.
- Sprinkle the foil with the spray activator and wait 10 seconds.
- Introducing the piece to decorate slowly and the water.
- Leave the piece in the water for 20-30 min.
- Remove the piece and let it dry for later lacarla with a spray.
Note: to be well is very important to know about that surface colour is applied to the hidroimpresion, for example, if our housing of the rearview mirror is white then we can apply the majority of films of water transfer printing except the carbon. Keep in mind that the original color of the piece you will always see a little what has to be a color that encourages. Then you cite the examples most common:
- Piece white color: we can apply sheets of drawings, wood, decoration in general.
- Piece color black: it is not recommended to use them because there are a few colors very muted.
- Piece gray color: is very good with carbon.
- Piece of wood color: is very good with wood.
In our kits hidroimpresion give you a can of spray white or grey (to choose) so you can paint the piece to decorate anything before and it looks perfect. We also attach a pot spray of matte lacquer or gloss (you choose).
