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


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.

Brillux Softfeel – the 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 Tec

The keys to success are paint innovations such as Hydro-PU-Tec and the relevant application know-how. This specially developed, pioneering paint system for brush and roller application fulfills the highest demands on surface quality and easy application.
