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.

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
