Welcome To Dipz & Tricks

Hydrographic and custom spray painting specialists in the North East UK

What We Do!

Here at Dipz & Tricks we provide our services to both the public and industry. Items will be insured in the unlikely event of any damage occurring to them whilst in our company. 

We also guarantee to redo any items found to have imperfections unless already discussed and agreed upon before we start the work, although we don’t accept liability for the chosen colour and design combination.

What Can Be Dipped?

The possibilities of what can be hydro dipped are huge. If it can be painted, it can most likely be dipped. Materials such as metal, wood, plastic, fibreglass, carbon fibre, glass, ceramics and even some fabrics can be dipped too. With the use of heatproof paint the pattern can withstand temperatures of up to 220 degrees Celsius before being effected. 

The only real limitation is the size of our dipping tank and the available size of the film chosen. We order the films in rolls of 50cm wide and 100cm wide depending on the design. Below are just a few examples of what can be dipped. If you are unsure about an item you want hydro dipped then please don’t hesitate to contact us

Frequently asked questions

Hydro dipping (also known as immersion printing, water transfer printing and hydro imaging ) is a unique process that allows you to apply graphics to almost any three-dimensional object. This process has been used for years in the auto industry along with many other fields

The imaged surface is as durable as the finish on your item. The top coat applied to the item creates a beautiful, durable finish.

Items like firearms, helmets, gaming controllers are widely decorated with hydro films these days. There are many different materials (substrates) the film can be applied on such as plastic, metal, wood, and more. 

A film printed with the graphic image is placed on the surface of a vat of water. An activator chemical is sprayed on the film to dissolve it into a liquid. The piece is then lowered into the vat,through the floating ink layer,which wraps around and adheres to it. After removing the piece from the water it is rinsed and dried, then a top coat is placed on the item.
