If you’ve been browsing the IntensaFire brand rapid fire modded controllers for Xbox 360 at IntensaFireStore.com, you’ve most likely come across our eye-popping Hydro Dipped modded controllers for Xbox 360. We’ve been asked by many customers about this amazing, one-of-a kind finish and we want to take the opportunity to answer a few questions and tell you a little more about these awesome, custom rapid fire controllers for Xbox 360.
To begin with, many customers have asked, “is this a custom paint job?” Although this may resemble a very well done custom paint job by an artist, this is actually a very unique process known as water-transfer printing or hydrographics printing. At IntensaFireStore.com, we customize Xbox 360 controllers with a process referred to as “hydro dipping.” All these terms simply refer to a surface decoration or finishing process that allows nearly any paintable surface to be decorated or finished with a detailed, custom graphic design. Hydro dipping is a versatile and surprisingly simple method for surface finishing complex three dimensional (3D) objects, perfect for Xbox 360 and PS3 custom modded rapid fire controllers. One big advantage a hydro dipped controller has over that of a painted finish to your controller is the hydro dipping process ensures your controller will not fade, crack, discolor or chip like a painted controller may. The finish is virtually impenetrable as it is coated with a diamond-tough like resin finish once the hydro dipping is dry and complete.
You may have seen this hydro dipping process in several other industries throughout the world. Hydro Dipping is currently used by major manufacturers around the world and is commonly found in industries such as firearms, automotive, aerospace, marine, and military. Although the design possibilities are endless, most hydro dipped printing patterns focus on a wide array of camouflages, wood grains, carbon fibers, stone, marble, brushed metals, and abstracts depending on the application and industry.
The process for hydro dipping your hydro dipped rapid fire controller itself is really quite simple, but the results are astounding as you can see by our lineup of Xbox 360 hydro dipped modded controllers. To begin with, we fill a large container with 100 % natural, distilled spring water to eliminate impurities or imperfections that may transfer to your premodified rapid mod controller. Then the custom film is carefully laid over the surface of the water and is left to stand for at least 1 minute to eliminate any air bubbles. Then the entire surface of the film on the water is sprayed with an activator in broad sweeping motions. Then the IntensaFire rapid fire controller shell is dipped into the water, hence the hydro dipping, where the floating ink layer wraps around and adheres to the controller perfectly and evenly. Then, voila, once removed from the water and allowed to dry and a base coat applied for your protection, your one-of-a-kind masterpiece is complete and ready to stand apart from any other modded controller on the market today.
