    Hydro dipping your pwc plastics and freshen up your ride

    Hello hulk.

    My father in law has recently begun a business venture in hydro dipping.

    We just did the front hood on my GP1200r in carbon fiber and I wanted to share it with all of you. There are hundreds of graphics and patterns to choose from and could give you a fresh look on your older ski. If you like what you see check him out at www.protexorpc.com. Or on facebook at protex off-road and powder coating.

    Thank you, sir. We're working on some other items so I'll have more to show. Possibilities are virtually endless.

    Looks nice, how much heat can the material take before it distorts?

    I'm not 100% on this because we are still learning but I believe it comes down to the paint you use. The pattern (film) that you use etches itself into the paint. So if the paint can withstand 500* than so will the pattern.

    I know for a fact that it can be used in high(er than normal) heat applications because people dip valve bodies for cars.

    The paint on my head cover is dupli-color high heat engine enamel rated at 500 and the clear coat is good to 325. So I'm gonna run with this for a season and see how it holds up. I don't anticipate any problems.
