We have held out in the Hydro dipping field until Cerakote released their Hydro Clear.

Just what is Hydro Dipping you might ask?
Hydro Dipping is a process where water transfer printing is extensively used to decorate items that range from entire all-terrain vehicles and car dashboards, to small items like bike helmets or other automotive trim, Guns, Cell phone cases, electrical cover plates, we will even dip your toilet seat if you want us to.
Films can be applied to all types of substrates including plastic, fiberglass, wood, ceramics, and metal. For the most part, if the item can be dipped in water and can be painted using traditional techniques then the hydrographic printing process can be used

Why Use Toms Custom Coatings for your Hydro Dip project?
Because Toms uses Cerakote clear for ultimate protection. We know you spend a lot of time and money to get exactly what you want, and we want your items to look bright and crisp for years to come. Below is some information from NIC about their clearcoat.
NIC Industries, Inc. examined hydrographic panels that had been clear coated using industry accepted clear topcoats. The hydrographic film analyzed was manufactured by True Timber™. The clear topcoats used were: Cerakote® MC-161 Matte Ceramic Clear, PPG AUE 100 Clear, US Paint AF3096 Flat Clear and Single Source Dead Flat Clear.
In order to determine the performance of the clear top coats, each coated panel was subjected to the following ASTM tests: ASTM D3363 “Measuring Film Hardness”, ASTM D3359 “Measuring Adhesion by Tape Test” and ASTM D523 “Specular Gloss”.
