Hydro Printing

Description

In this induction, participants are introduced to the applications of hydro printing (also referred to as water transfer printing and trained on how to transfer film patterns on a surface using water. The participant is taught how to use the Hydro dipping tank and how to prepare the object for printing, estimate the work area, size of film, quantity activator formula and plan the dipping based on size and level of complexity of object.

As part of preparing an object for hydro printing, participants will learn how to use a spray booth to apply prime to an object and accordingly how to use a spray gun, the booth’s fume extraction and water filtration. The finishing process includes washing manually or using a high pressure washing machine and also sealing the object with a protective transparent coat.

The induction will also teach the clean-up process before and after hydro printing and how to return the equipment and tools used to a usable condition.
