Commercial Hydrographics, Inc.

Q) Can scopes be dipped?
A) Yes scopes can be hydrodipped, we do not warranty scopes from any damage as a result of processing. Tremendous effort is taken to seal and mask all critical areas and we have not lost one yet! A signed scope waiver needs to accompany your scope when shipping it to us.
Q) What materials can be hydrodipped?

Q) What prep is needed prior to shipping my parts in for processing?
A) You need to disassemble your parts and degrease. Additional charges will be assed for disassembly/reassembly and/or cleaning.
Q) How durable is hydrographics?
A) Properly applied hydrographics can provide years of service. Our matte and satin top coats are used, and have passed testing by top OEM’s like Kershaw Knives, Bowtech, Aero Precision and more. The high gloss top coats are the same ones used on cars and should be cared for in the same manner you would your car. Avoid using any products marked not safe for paint on any of our top coats.

A) Volume production is our specialty; we provide custom level quality at production level pricing. We do not normally charge for samples, please call or email today about your project and we will make every effort to take care of you.
