Hydro Dipping

Bought some Hydro Dipping equipment and I am looking into testing parts. Does anyone have some working knowledge on annod parts they can help me with. I'm having a hard time having things bond to the part and I am assuming this has to deal with my prep work.

I don't have first hand experience but from what I have seen you need to paint the parts with the base color for the specific pattern you want. That would involve scuffing up the anno and getting a good base layer like any other paint. Then you can dip the parts like anything else would be done.

Prep work is the key to anything like this. With anodizing, powdercoating, hydro diping, cerakote if your prep work is poor the end product will be poor. Hydro dipping can be done well over anodizing without having to mar or scratch the ano layer but there is a "primer" that needs to be applied to the parts before they are painted and dip coated. Don't ask me what the primer is because I have no idea.
