Hydraulic Transfer FIlm

Material Name

Manufacturer

MC 8226-01

PROCESS

A surface decoration method transferring digitally printed patterns or images onto three-dimensional surfaces that is suitable for various plastic substrates (ABS, PC-ABS, etc.). All dipping and coating processes are automated, making this a high volume and quality option for hydrographic printing. A water soluble (PVA, polyvinyl alcohol) film is placed on the water surface, then the primed object is dipped to transfer the print. Afterwards, a clear top coat is sprayed on to provide abrasion and chemical resistance. Because the dipping and coating processes are automated, this delivers high throughput and consistent quality. The maximum part size for this decoration process is 1000 mm (3.3 ft) by 350 mm (1.1 ft). The transfer film is around 0.05 m–0.1 m (0.002 mil–0.004 mil), while the clear top coat is around 20 m–40 m (0.8 mil–1.6 mil) in thickness. Any color or pattern can be printed on the transfer films, such as wood, marble, metallic, or abstract patterns and effects. The company complies with ISO 14001 and ISO/TS 16949 for environmental stewardship and manufacturing efficiency. Applications include automotive interiors and consumer electronics.
