MPWHS – Kryptek Highlander™
Our Kryptek Highlander MPWHS has all of the terrific features of the MPWHS with a hydrographically applied Kryptek Highlander camo pattern. Highlander Camo was specifically designed for use in a wide range of mixed terrains in varied regions and elevations. The Highlander pattern combined with the architecture of the MPWHS and the uniqueness of immersion printing, guarantees, like fingerprints, every MPWHS will be unique.
Kryptek patterns utilize a multi-directional design to effectively conceal in a multitude of terrains that have either a lateral or vertical flow. The bi-level layering of the patterns incorporate background transitional shading and sharp random geometrical foregrounds to create a three dimensional effect that ensures the utmost in concealment at both close and long ranges. These components combined with colorations selected and matched based on input from testing and observations from Operators in the field make Kryptek Camo the ultimate in passive battlefield deception.
Even if you’re familiar with the hydrographic printing process, you may want to take a minute to read about our process. Every dipped part undergoes 10 separate steps before its considered ready to ship. It’s not as simple as you might think.
Prior to applying the Highlander pattern, each component of the MPWHS undergoes several processes to ensure a quality result. Each component is hand sanded, cleaned and masked to allow proper adhesion of a base coat, an important step required for proper adhesion of the pattern.
After the base coat has been applied and oven dried, the components are ready for dipping. Next we float the hydrographic film on the surface of the water in the dipping tank. When the film hydrates, activator is applied and the MPWH or BPK is slowly and carefully dipped in the liquefied film to receive the Highlander pattern. Complex parts like the BPK and MPWH often require two dipping processes to achieve the desired look.
Immediately after dipping the component is washed to remove any excess activator and then racked to oven dry. After the dipped parts are inspected they receive a clear acrylic top coat to protect them from normal wear and tear. Once the Acrylic is applied the MPWH or BPK is racked again to oven dry.
After drying, the components undergo one final inspection before final assembly and packaging.
