The follow the above steps to make the object pass the adhesion test. But there will be different requirements for the aviation, automotive, and hunting markets, and it is necessary to use more different topcoats to strengthen it.

From by handmade to professional completely water transfer printing production
line can be done water transfer printing.
For playing or very simple sampling, yes, a tank, and film + activator can make it.
However, in terms of stable production quantity and effectiveness, a complete water transfer production line is necessary.

The objects should be dried completely before doing dipping.
You should use the base coat color to match the desired film pattern.
If you had sprayed too less activator on the film during the dipping process, there will be air bubble created on the item surface after the transfer printing.
If you had sprayed too much activator on the film during the dipping process, the film ink (patterns) will come out from the item (slip from the item).
