Hydro printing in the nautical sector
What is hydroprinting?
It is a printing technique that consists of transferring a printed design onto a polyvinyl alcohol foil or backing resting on the surface of the water.
The transfer is applied to different objects in a traditional or industrial way, thanks to the action of the water, which exerts a necessary push to adhere the sheet to the object as it slowly submerges.
