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


Applying water-based paints by brush and roller

The first choice for water-based painting with brush and roller: Hydro-PU-Tec. The coating system withstands the highest demands and produces durable surfaces. The products are available in small and large containers for all kinds of projects. Do you want silk matt or high gloss surfaces? Both are possible with Hydro-PU-Tec. The long open time allows you to work comfortably and seamlessly, even on larger surfaces. In this way, the paints meet your professional requirements for homogeneous, smooth surfaces. For even more creative variety, the coatings can be tinted in an unlimited range of colors using the Brillux Color System. In addition to Hydro-PU-Tec Undercoat 2020, you can choose between Hydro-PU-Tec High Gloss Enamel 2084 and Hydro-PU-Tec Silk Matt Enamel 2088 for intermediate and top coats.

Your benefits with Hydro-PU-Tec

  • water-based and low odor
  • for indoors
  • based on state-of-the-art PU bonding agent technology
  • excellent flow
  • very good surface hardness
  • high color stability
  • good light resistance
  • easy to apply


Superb finish by means of spraying

Spray application requires different material properties than processing with a roller and brush. Hydro-PU spray paints are specially formulated for the Airless and AirCoat spray processes. They are particularly impressive for large-area product application in terms of application convenience and surface quality.

The main reasons for this are their viscosity and resistance to flow. If the material is too thin, it would result in poor coverage, sagging and runs on the surface. Material that is too viscous, on the other hand, produces an irregular spray pattern and poor flow. This is why the water-based and ready-to-use Hydro-PU-Spray products are specially formulated for spray application – the result is an excellent and uncomplicated finish.

Hydro-PU-Spray Filler 2120 and Hydro-PU-Spray Silk Matt Enamel 2188 provide you with a complete system: from primer to top coat. Efficient application and low overspray increase your efficiency and finish quality.

Your benefits with Hydro-PU-Spray

  • water-based, low-odor
  • for indoors
  • for airless and AirCoat spray methods
  • easy to apply
  • very good hiding power
  • outstanding resistance to flow up to 250 μm film thickness
  • excellent flow for flawless surfaces
  • very good surface hardness
  • reduced spray mist formation


Efficiently coating small surfaces

Open the cup, screw it under the front end and you’re ready to go – that’s how easy it is to use Hydro-PU-XSpray. Application by XVLP is ideal for areas of up to 50 square meters. The compact device with a small product container makes handling particularly convenient.

It is quick and easy to switch out one product for another. With Hydro-PU-XSpray, the outstanding surface quality is not compromised: the good coverage and perfect flow make for the best results, even on a small scale. The time savings are particularly evident in a direct comparison: when coating both sides of a panel door, the XVLP spray application significantly reduces your processing time. Cleaning time is also significantly reduced. Use our efficiency calculator to see how much time you can save:

Your benefits with Hydro-PU-XSpray

  • water-based, low-odor
  • perfect flow
  • very good surface hardness
  • high resistance to flow
  • minimal spray mist formation
  • good hiding power
  • quick drying
  • ideal for use with XVLP spray tools
  • no need to refill
  • practical, easy-to-open screw cup
  • for indoors

In a direct comparison between brush and roller application and spray application, the time savings can be highlighted particularly clearly when coating a panel door on both sides. The extensive masking work and switching from paintbrush to roller make this work extremely time consuming. Simply enter the number of door surfaces to be coated and set the personal parameters for application – and the benefits of the XVLP device become clear.
