About the Aircraft Hydrographics Process

Hydrographic technology, also known as water transfer printing, is the process of applying a repeatable pattern or artwork onto a sturdy material capable of being submerged. A water-soluble film is laid on top of the water and is sprayed with an activator allowing the printed pattern to adhere to the dipped items. After the items are dipped, they are rinsed, dried, and sprayed with a protective clear coat. 

Aircraft Hydrographic Patterns

Choose from a large selection of film patterns, including but not limited to woodgrains, stonework, carbon fiber, or specialized prints with repeatable shapes, stripes, flowers, flames, etc.

Or ask us about creating your own unique film! C&L works with you to design, approve, and print your customized pattern.

Aircraft Hydrographics vs. New Veneer Installation

Hydrographics offer a cost-effective and quick alternative to real wood veneer installations while still providing an executive-level appearance. Plus, hydrographics provide a wider array of possibilities compared to veneer, allowing customers to choose from various base coats and patterned films to create unique combinations and appearances.
