Hydro-dipping is the process of using water and a specialist film that can cover/ wrap almost every three-dimensional object such as a PlayStation 5 controller. It is like printing, but with a better technique with far better quality. Among many other materials, hardwoods, plastics, glass, and metals are the few materials that one can hydro-dip. The films that one uses to do this are basically layered over water, and then very precisely, the object is dipped in it according to the placement of the design required. These films are available in hundreds of colors and patterns. Most people know this process as hydrographics or even water transfer printing. One can customize almost anything however they like it through hydro dipping.
To answer this simply, we can hydro-dip anything that is dippable. Technically, one can’t hydro-dip anything under the sun. As part of the printing process, before we hydro-dip the items, we submerge and rinse them in water. Hence, if water can ruin or dissolve the object, one can’t hydro-dip it. Also, tough objects are better to apply the film on them. So basically, one cannot hydro-dip pillows, soft toys, cellphones, laptops, notebooks, etc. However, we do hydro dip casings for electronics as well! Case in point the amazing controllers.
Our motto is “we dip anything dippable”!
Before we hydro-dip, we make sure that all of our products are smooth and prime. Afterward, there’s a coat of finisher that we apply at the end of the process.
First, we hydro-dip all the products, then let them dry fully before we cover them with the final protective layer of lacquer. This prevents the water-transferred designs to stay in place, looking beautiful, and for the designs to look fresh for way longer!
Cleaning your Dyeport hydro-dipped products is simple and similar to how one would clean their car paintwork or how one dusts household objects. You may use clean, soft pieces of cloth to clean your products – you may lightly dampen the cloth, but DO NOT use bleach or any type or corrosive cleaners.
Do not rub hard on the paint, but gently clean it.
Typically, the lifespan for hydro dipping is anywhere between five to fifteen years. Of course, this applies to normal wear and tear. One may scratch it under extreme and abusive circumstances. So we advise you to be careful with your hydro-dipped products such as PlayStation 5 controller as you are with anything that you own.
Yes, we may re-dip the products without much difficulty if it’s necessary or even if one wants something else after use. It does come with a cost, though.
