How to Remove Hydro Dip

Hydro Dip is a technology that transfers patterns to objects of different materials through water transfer technology. Hydro Dip is widely used in various industries, including automobiles, electronic products, home furnishings, etc. It can help your objects achieve decorative and protective effects. When you are enjoying the process of making Hydro Dip or are learning, and encountering problems such as pattern wear and redesign, finding the right way to remove the Hydro Dip film without damaging the object’s surface is crucial.

Methods to Remove Hydro Dip Prints

Using chemical solvents (acetone, denatured alcohol, paint thinner, etc.) is one of the common methods to remove Hydro Dip film. It effectively and quickly dissolves the water transfer patterns.

● Mechanical Polishing

Using tools like sandpaper is also a common method. However, care must be taken to avoid scratching the surface.

Removal Techniques for Different Materials
