Water Transfer Printing Film
Water Transfer Printing Film Introduction
Caiyi Water Transfers Printing Film / Hydrographic Printing be printed in such irregular 3D surfaces as the plastics, wooden, metal, glass, pottery,…etc. to decorate in a large amount, technology and application are common and ripeness, weatherable, colorful and artistically appearance, innocuity, no pollution, environment-friendly, could be incinerated, and could be recycle after decomposition. Caiyi’s films likeCamouflage , Carbon Fiber , Stone , Marble , Geometric , wooden , Metal Brush ,go with elastically, stability and same thickness, so very difficultly to crack, high yield rate and best efficiency which is your best choice.

WATER TRANSFER PRINTING TECHNIQUE Q&A:
1. what is Water Transfer Printing ?
Water Transfer Printing provides a way to decorate on many kinds of material such as plastic, glass, metal and even wood to enhance the additional value , the design can be camouflage , carbon fiber , marble , metal flash , geometric and so on…


2. What is the equipment require for immersion printing film ?It require tanks (manual / automatic ) , washing station , oven, spray booth to finish the process of Water Transfer Printing

3. What size of spray booth fit for my production?
It depend on the production rate of quantity every month , the client who work for aftermarket cubic printing, we recommend 1.5 meter width spray booth is enough

4. Do I need washing station for Hydro Dipping ?
Yes, after transfer with PVA film on decorated part , it need Washing machines to clear over the subject


5. Do I need oven to dry decorated parts?
Yes, it better dry by oven , it is because dust will cover the subject while it dry by nature ,the oven temperature should be around 50-65 degree for the plastic material

6. What should I need for Water Transfer Printing Process ?
Base coat , Water Transfer Printing Film , activator , top coat to get it done


7.What Is the raw material of Hydrographic printing film ?
PVA (Polyvinyl Alcohol) , it can be melt in the water , it also call water soluble synthetic polymer

8. How is the hydrographic printing film Standard thickness ?
It come with 30 , 35 , 40 micro standard thickness


9. What is the Liquid Print Film standard width ?
CCH available for 500 / 600 / 800 / 1000 / 1200 / 1524mm , CCH is the only one who can print the width of 1524mm , it is cover the car bumper , beach Motor bike


10.What temperature to store Dipping Film?
65~84 oF / 18~28oC , The temperature is effecting on the ink , It is very sensitive to the ink when it expose on high temperature , it should be always keep away from the sun

11. What humidity to store the Hydrographic film ?
60~70 % (RH) , The PVA film is call Polyvinyl Alcohol , it is sensitive to the humidity , when it expose in the environment of high humidity , the humidity will be reduce the PVA film life

12.What size of spray gun do you recommend for HYDROGRAFIKA ?
We recommend 0.8~1.3Ømm , not over 1.3Ømm , for activator it require high quality Precisely spray gun to work with it


13. How difficult is it to learn the Camouflage dipping ?
To dipping with camouflage design on subject like gun , it require more practice to get the better result , especially when It gun transfer it require more slower and stable on Water Transfer Printing Dipping

14.How long does it require to lay the Liquid Print Film on water ?
It normally require 90~120 second to lay on water with 30 micro film , we don’t recommend shorter time on water for transfer


15.How long does it take to finish the film dipping process ?
It require roughly 2 min a circle for Liquid print , therefor to increase the production rate can be add more tanks on process

16.Should I set up the water tank to soak the decorated parts ?
We recommend to add more water tank to soak decorated part for ink more stable on decorated part


17.What angle to dip decorated part ?
We recommend 45o angle dip into water

18.Do I have to spray a subject with clear coat?
Yes, it is require on Immersion printing to protect the design , the clear coat are come with difference function , like anti scratch , anti finger print not only those function but also UV resistance , CCH come out with outdoor Water Transfer Printing Film for the decorated part like beach Motor bike , hunting gun , other products which apply for outdoor application to work with UV resistance top coat material

19.What is the result when I spray too much activator ?
When process Desen kaplama , if spray too much activator , the ink of design can’t be stay tight on decorated part , it will slide from subject

20.What is the result if I spray too less activator ?
Normally when it spray too less activator , the surface on film will become met , not the mirror surface , after transfer it come with little spot , as well as the surface of decorated part will become roughly , therefor , Liquid Print process require better spray skill and more practice on spray activator


21.Can items be reprinted if transfer not correctly ?
Yes , when you done the Immersion Printing , it come with defect spot or the result unacceptable , it can remove by the activator or the chemical NBA , but the fast way is repaint the base coat to cover it

22.What type of material doesn’t require base coat process ?
Normally ABS doesn’t require any base coat , but to match the design , it has to be paint the base color to match the art
