ACS HydroBar Anti Condensation Paint

ACS HydroBar Anti Condensation Paint, formerly known as AntiCon 15, is a single pack, advanced waterborne, condensation control coating based on acrylated vinyl acetate, with natural earth minerals and non-toxic pigments.

ACS HydroBar Anti Condensation Paint is suitable for commercial, industrial and domestic use for reducing the incidence of condensation on ceilings and walls.

ACS HydroBar Anti Condensation Paint works in two ways; initially providing an insulating layer to keep the surface temperature above the dewpoint, delaying the onset of surface condensation.

Secondly, at times of high humidity by absorbing atmospheric moisture, reducing droplet formation and releasing the trapped moisture as vapour when the relative humidity drops.

ACS HydroBar Anti Condensation Paint is suitable for application in hospitals, schools, farms, breweries, offices, factories and domestic property, in kitchens, shower
rooms, animal-rearing sheds and other areas where condensation is a problem or causes spoilage.

ACS HydroBar Anti Condensation Paint contains an in-can biocide to protect the applied coating from fungal growth.

ACS HydroBar Anti Condensation Paint gives a Matt Finish when dry.

Substrate Preparation:

Ensure all surfaces are clean, dry and free of oil, grease and wax. Fill all holes with a suitable Filler or Decorators Caulk and rub down to a fine finish. Any existing coatings should be in good condition and well adhered to the surface. Rub down and loose or flaking paintwork back to a sound, firm line. Remove any loose wallpaper.

Glossy Surfaces or Oil Based Finishes: Should be lightly abraded with aluminium oxide paper (sandpaper), washed with a mild detergent solution, rinsed with clean water and allowed to dry.

Ferrous Metals: Should be corrosion free or cleaned to a minimum of SA 2.5. Apply one coat of Alkyphos Zinc Phosphate Primer and allow to dry thoroughly. Inspect for signs of flash rusting prior to application of ACS HydroBar Anti Condensation Paint. If corrosion is evident, rub down and apply a second coat of Alkyphos Primer.

Porous Masonry and New Plaster: Should be allowed to dry thoroughly. Apply one coat of ACS Acrylic Surface Sealer and allow to dry. This should also be used on un-painted Artex or similar textured finishes.

Treat any existing mould with ACS Mould Wash Concentrate, diluted with water and allow to dry.

Application Method:

Do not thin ACS HydroBar Anti Condensation Paint. Apply paint by brush or roller.

Stir or shake the contents well, before use. Dampen brush or roller with a little water, load well, apply liberally and lay-off early. Do not overspread and avoid coating surfaces that are partly dry.

Always work to a wet edge. Re-coating is recommended after 2-3 hours, although this time can be reduced in good drying conditions to 1 or 2 hours.

Apply 2 or 3 coats at 4-6m² per litre per coat, allowing sufficient time for the initial coat to dry before applying the subsequent ones.

Subsequent coats will appear to dry more quickly due to the adsorbent effect of the previous coats. In areas of very high humidity, further applications may be required.

ACS HydroBar Anti Condensation Paint will require periods of low humidity to allow any trapped water to evaporate from the coating, especially in areas of constant or very high humidity.


Approximately 4m² - 6m² per Litre.
