Alamo Plating Intros Water Transfer Printing

 - October 22, 2009, 9:23 AM

Alamo Plating & Metal Finishing (Booth No. 2888) announced a new finishing process called water-transfer printing, which uses a specialized film to print natural designs, such as burl wood, walnut, marble and geometric patterns, on nearly any substrate. Interior paneling, cabinetry, handles, switches, bezels and other interior parts lend themselves to this film-dipping process. Any material that is hard surfaced and nonporous and that can be submerged in water without harm can be printed. Alamo has a catalog of hundreds of patterns or can create a custom pattern to meet the customer’s desires. The Converse, Texas-based company claims the process “opens a whole new line of options to aircraft owners.”
