Hydro-Sublimation is Ideal for 3D imensional and welded metal parts

Hydro-sublimation technology

Hydro-sublimation technology combines the advantages of hydro-graphic or immersion process, an already well-known powder coating process, with the durability and cost advantage of sublimation process.


The biggest advantage of hydro-sublimation on metal is that there is NO CLEAR COAT REQUIRED. The powder coating for sublimation has opened doors to enable customers to produce unique decorative finished products like never before.


Dye sublimation on metal, the transfer of printed images to a synthetic substrate by the application of heat, has traditionally only been available for products such as t-shirts, drinking mugs, mouse pads, etc. Recent advancements in powder coating for sublimation have brought new and exciting possibilities for anyone that wants to utilize the process of decorative coating.


For builders, architects and manufacturers, this sublimation coating powder is a tremendous value-added service, allowing to practically change the design of any product and increase an endless variety of products at a very reasonable cost.


Sublimation coating powder has created new opportunities that allow you to transform your products using high-resolution photographic images or designs. Our sublimation technologies can be applied on various materials that can range from steel to aluminum, or even glass or MDF.

Examples of products using Hydro-Sublimation
• Aluminum Wood Grain
• Wood Grain On Metal
• Custom wood grain
• Powder coating for sublimation
• Wood grain ceilings
• Wood Grain Patio Furniture
• Decking Wood Grain
• Wood Grain Railing
• Store Fixture Wood Grain

  • Industrial applications: Hydro sublimation technology is a versatile technology that you can use on various materials. From metal and glass to MDF and high-temp plastic, it's an incredibly flexible technology.

How Does Hydro Sublimation Technology Work?

Hydro sublimation technology uses water-based inks to transfer images onto a water-soluble transfer paper. The water-soluble transfer film is placed face down on the substrate (metal, glass, plastic, or another material) while floating on a bed of water. After the transfer film is deposited on the part, the substrate is heated, while the ink turns from a solid to a gas and sublimates into the part. Finally, the part cools, and the image remains embedded seamlessly onto the substrate.

Benefits of Hydro Sublimation Technology
