OHW Paint Company carries a full range of paints and paint accessories for the hydrographic industry.
Our signature One Hit Wonder Paint is a ready-to-spray basecoat formulated specifically for the hydrographic process. One Hit Wonder’s unique formula eliminates the need to apply separate primers or adhesion promoters. You simply degrease, then scuff, apply One Hit Wonder and dip.
One Hit Wonder goes direct to metal, fiberglass, bone, wood, plastics* and previously painted parts and unlike most solvent-based paints that require you to dip within 8 hours of application, One Hit Wonder has an 18 month dipping window.
In addition, One Hit Wonder is designed to chemically bond with hydrographic film using the film’s activator as a catalyst. The clear coat, when applied, then bonds THROUGH the film, into the paint and cures everything as one element.
We’ve been in the paint business for over 30 years. When one of our clients, the KIA factory race team, asked us to hydro dip parts for resale in dealerships nationwide we created a paint that would help streamline the production process and address the delamination risk found in hydrographics.
The paint was so effective not only did we use it to paint the Grand-Am championship winning Kia Forte Koups and their OEM, 10-year warranty, hydro dipped parts; we used it to paint everything that left our shop. People referred to the paint as “One Hit Wonder” because its one-step process made life so much easier. The name stuck and in 2011, One Hit Wonder was launched to the public.
