Re: Hydrographics dipping, start to finish

Marty, it would depend on how much flex the part gives. All the parts above are plastic, but they don't flex/move at all when installed (for the most part) So I can use a high gloss clear. If the item were to flex, the clear would crack.

It is best to dip something with a hard surface/wont bend much.

The parts would only flex when being installed/snapped into place. Majority of the parts are solid just the covers flexible until fitted.

They don't flex much more than say a rear bumper which can take a fair bit of movement if that helps descibe it better?

Re: Hydrographics dipping, start to finish

then it should have no problem with the clear Marty. Same clear used on bumpers is the same clear I use.

Re: Hydrographics dipping, start to finish

all of my interior bezels are painted inferno red and cleared with automotive paint and clear. They are perfect after like 5 years. I dont see these being any different.

Re: Hydrographics dipping, start to finish

Correct Scott. Clears today are made to withstand a great deal. And I myself (cant speak for others) use only top of the line coat. For what I do, this clear coat is more then enough for parts. Again its all about the clears. I wouldn't use $300 a gallon clear on a hard hat, but on trim I would. I wouldn't use $300 clear on wheels, as even that will chip away in time. Wheels require a much stronger clear to stand up to road rash and that clear is around $500.

Let me add this too, guns and outdoor gear also take a spacial paint and clear to withstand the elements of the outdoors.

Very cool process. How much does doing something like this run?

Re: Hydrographics dipping, start to finish

It is all priced out per piece. But things like film pattern, color and clears can affect a price.

Re: Hydrographics dipping, start to finish

Finishing up on the parts. After all the clear cured, I wet sanded with super fine grit sandpaper. Using a rubbing compound I hand rubbed all the parts to get all the fine lines out of the part.

I then machine polished each part with polishing liquid to a mirrior finish.
