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.
The pattern or design is gravure-printed on a water-soluble film.
Which means the pattern is rolled through a 2 rotary cylinders into the dip tank. This method is widely used for large volume printing.
As the pattern flows through the gravure cylinders, it is activated.
Which means the pattern is being prepared for liquefaction, taking the pattern from a solid state to a liquid state. To allow for the object to be submerged into the pattern.
Once the pattern has exited the gravure cylinders it floats on top of the heated water. Once the pattern has a mirror finish, the object that is to be decorated is ready to be hydro-dipped.
After the pattern has adhered to the object. It has to be washed throughly to remove excess film and to be sure no film is left over for the drying process.
After the object has been washed throughly. It has to dry before the top layer coat can be applied to the object.
Once the object is dried, the object goes down the assembly line into a paint booth. Which then applies a top layer coat of high quality clear coat for protection.
