Water-based enamel paints Perfect product quality for every application technique

To achieve premium results in paint application, the coating material and application technique must be perfectly coordinated. After all, spray application requires other product properties than roller and paintbrush application. This applies especially to viscosity and stability. When developing water-based enamel paints, Brillux has therefore consistently taken the relevant application parameters into account. The result: Enamel paints for unique, high-tech coatings.

Perfect product quality for every application technique


The spray paint for efficient renovation coating

In everyday life, we depend on reliable materials that function properly. And for large surfaces in particular, working with relatively low quality coatings rapidly becomes annoying. A renovation coating should be durable, as well as quick and safe to apply. Along with other advantages, this is exactly what Brillux offers with Ratiospray 2170 for facades in industrial and commercial halls. 

Stable color with reliable application

Spray application is ideally suited to large areas. Efficient spray paint is the perfect choice, not just due to its easy application, but also due to its high color stability and low soiling tendency. These advantages are easy to see on various substrates, whether its coil coatings and old coatings or on non-ferrous metals. 

Versatile all-rounder for industrial and commercial halls

Ratiospray 2170 excels, with its low odor and excellent adhesion with easy application at all times. Thanks to these properties, it is suitable both for exterior facades as well as for ceiling areas in hall interiors. Regardless of whether it is deck facades or sandwich panels – the efficient spray paint provides superior results. 

Perfect appearance

After all, for the exteriors and interiors of a building, a perfect overall appearance matters, where soiling and color changes don’t have an impact. It is only with a professional renovation coating that facades and ceilings can retain the desired appearance over the long term. So even at the development stage, high standards were set for Ratiospray 2170. But the water-based all-round spray paint excels, from application right through to the finish. It provides a flawless surface appearance and is suitable for airless and AirCoat spray methods.

The result? You will safely and reliable create a flawless finish, in the shortest of times.

Softfeel 2060 Unique matt finishing for painted surfaces

Matt and sensitive or glossy and durable – in the past, there was little choice for the surface design of installations or objects in interior spaces. Now, Brillux has developed something completely new. Brillux Softfeel. A surface finish that opens up a completely new sense of quality, both visually and in terms of feel.

Extraordinary matt surfaces for interior objects made from wood or metal – while conventional dull matt paints delivered unsatisfactory results in the past due to their high sensitivity, an effective solution finally became available in 2018. Exclusive installations for shop and exhibition construction, the hotel trade or private objects can be finished with a surface that truly impresses all the senses.

Brillux Softfeel is a transparent finish for painted wood or metal. The Softfeel effect is created by an additional application on the surface that has already been coated with Hydro-PU paint. Brillux Softfeel can be painted, rolled or sprayed. The water-based paint is low odor and forms a hard-wearing coating with velvety-soft feel and soft matt look.

Even large surfaces can be set in scene elegantly with the efficient AirCoat spray application. A new high level of quality is created and offers a special haptic experience for a wide range of applications. Brillux Softfeel thus opens up completely new design options.

An innovation, exclusively from Brillux

Brillux Softfeel is based on a specially developed watery polyurethane copolymer and special, highly elastic raw materials. Thanks to this unique formulation and the combination with a pioneering activator (this activator is added in the branch, after which time the product can be applied up to 4 weeks after delivery), surfaces can be achieved which impress with a pleasant, warm feel, good scratch resistance and high flexibility.

A hard-soft segment structure is formed, similar to a mountain-valley structure. Our human sense of touch is stimulated at a rate of milliseconds by this unique surface and gives us the velvety-soft and high quality feel.

The key Brillux Softfeel features:

  • for interior use
  • water-based, low odor
  • new activator technology
  • transparent
  • hard-wearing
  • abrasion-resistant
  • quick-drying
  • resistant to yellowing

Hydro-PU Metallicfinish 2177/2277 Make the room shine

Metallic surfaces provide highlights in trendy interior designs. They add a certain "je ne sais quoi", whether that's in a restaurant, exhibition space, trade fair construction and shop fitting or in private residential spaces. Hydro-PU Metallicfinish from Brillux gives painted interior surfaces that powerful, expressive look.

The innovation is brought to life with a fine metallic sheen, with an excellent depth effect, that can be brought to life in any color. That’s because the finish is transparent and, as the top coat, transforms any Brillux Hydro-PU paint coating into a metallic paint coating.

Of course, all premium properties are included: The water-based, low odor Hydro PU Metallicfinish is easy to apply and scores points with its great surface quality and long-lasting color accuracy. The shimmering solution to glossy metallic accents!

Superior protection of wooden floors

For highly resistant, functional coatings

Whether its in high frequency use areas, such as public buildings, schools, and kindergartens, or in settings where there is a special degree of exposure of the surface due to chemicals or disinfectants, such as hospitals, medical practices or nursing homes: There are fields of application which place extreme requirements on coating resistance.

This is where the water-based products from the 2C Aqua range excel: They are highly resistant, and can be exposed to high mechanical and chemical stress. They also rate highly when it comes to resistance to disinfectants, sweat, creams, grease, and other chemicals. Thanks to these properties, combined with fast drying, and minimal increase in odor, these innovative high-tech coatings ensure that even highly frequented interior areas are more than fit for purpose, as well as ensuring durable surfaces in exterior areas.

For roller application, we recommend applying the material with the Hydro Paint Roller 1288. The foam paint roller achieves a finer surface finish. For brushing, Uni Plus brushes are preferred. Large surfaces can be effectively and efficiently coated using the AirCoat spray application.

2C Aqua primers: outstanding preparation for perfect results

Another new addition to the range is the 2C Aqua Epoxi Primer 2373, a water-based, two-component primer with outstanding adhesion and high resistance. 2C Aqua Epoxi Primer 2373 is available in the color shades white, anthracite, red brown and gray, and can be used universally on non-absorbent, rigid substrates such as zinc, galvanized steel, aluminum, melamine resin plates and on load-bearing coatings made from polyurethane, epoxy and alkyd resin paints.

For high-traffic wooden surfaces: 2K-Aqua Durakett 2394

Parquet flooring and wood stairs: Elegantly laid wooden floors are a visual enhancement for many rooms. Not only do they add to the atmosphere of the rooms, but they also increase the property’s value. However, heavy use can quickly damage the sensitive wooden surface long-term.

While single component coatings provide enough protection for the valuable wooden flooring in private residences, public areas or spaces with heavy foot traffic pose other challenges. The particularly durable sealant 2K-Aqua Durakett 2394 offers the efficient and long-lasting protection that heavily used real wood floors need.

The two-component coating resists even heavy mechanical and chemical stresses and thus protects indoor wooden flooring and stairs long-term. At the same time, the matt finish and good leveling properties make for visually appealing surfaces that can be easily cleaned. To match your individual preferences, the robust sealant is available in a variety of color shades via the Brillux color system.

There are other benefits to 2K-Aqua Durakett 2394, too: thanks to the water- based recipe and its quick curing, the low odor that passes quickly does not interrupt work. Moreover, the second coat can be applied on the same day so that the finished surfaces can be walked on again in no time.
