Outdoor Colors is one of the largest product surface technology companies in the marketplace. Our process is fully automated and licensed for hydrographic printing technologies and we are a major supplier to original equipment manufacturers throughout North America. Our process helps ideas take shape, by adding exclusive patterns and designs to Sporting Goods, hunting or military products such as weapons or field gear.
1. FILM PRINTING
The pattern or design is gravure-printed on a water-soluble film.
The film is specially treated to activate or "re-wet" the links.
The film is floated out onto the water and the product (material) to be decorated is pressed down into the film to effect the transfer.
4. FILM REMOVAL & WASHING
Having fulfilled its role as the medium for the print transfer, the film is washed away.
Water which has adhered to the product (material) during transfer is dried off.
6. TOP COATING
A transparent top coat is applied to protect the printed surface.
