FAQ's


Although Hydrographics is widely used in the USA it is a fairly new process to the UK and consequently we get asked lots of questions regarding the process and cost.

The process was first developed for the military as a way of camouflaging items, it was then taken up by motor manufacturers worldwide as a more cost effective way of coating interior parts. Following the expiry of patents, hydrographics has become widely used by smaller companies offering a more individual finish to everyday items.

Here are some of the more frequently asked questions.


 

What does it cost?
The most popular question asked by far.
There are many variables in the process making posting a definitive price list difficult, but we have listed a number of popular items below to give a general idea.
It is best to call us on 0800 410 1339 in order for us to give a more detailed quote suitable to your individual requirements.

How durable is the finish?
We use only the highest grade automotive and marine lacquers to preserve the graphics giving a UV resistant, hard wearing finish.

How long does the process take?
Generally we turn around items within five working days. We also offer a free collection and delivery service to local areas and low cost door to door delivery nationwide.

Can you coat larger items - e.g. car panels?
Yes - With our large immersion tank we can dip items up to two metres in length, larger items are coated using a 'double dipping' process.

Can I have my own design printed on to an item?
Yes - Although we have hundreds of designs available sometimes our clients want something that is totally individual to them. For such a bespoke finish there is a higher cost attached, contact us for more information.
