ACS HydroBar Anti Condensation Paint is an advanced waterborne coating that effectively reduces condensation on ceilings and walls. This innovative paint works by providing insulation to maintain surface temperatures above the dewpoint, delaying the onset of condensation.
It also absorbs atmospheric moisture during high humidity, preventing droplet formation and releasing trapped moisture as vapor during lower humidity. Suitable for commercial, industrial, and domestic use, this paint is ideal for hospitals, schools, farms, breweries, offices, factories, and various areas where condensation is a problem. It contains an in-can biocide to protect against fungal growth and provides a matte finish when dry.
ACS HydroBar Anti Condensation Paint is designed to prevent mould, mildew growth, and condensation formation.

ACS HydroBar Anti Condensation Paint is a high-quality waterborne coating formulated with acrylated vinyl acetate, natural earth minerals, and non-toxic pigments. It offers an effective solution for reducing condensation on ceilings and walls in various settings, including commercial, industrial, and domestic environments.
The key advantage of ACS HydroBar Anti Condensation Paint lies in its dual-action approach to control condensation. Firstly, it provides an insulating layer that helps to maintain surface temperatures above the dewpoint, thereby delaying the onset of condensation. This feature is particularly effective in environments with high humidity or temperature fluctuations.
Secondly, during periods of high humidity, this paint absorbs atmospheric moisture, reducing droplet formation on the surface. When the relative humidity drops, the trapped moisture is released as vapor, preventing the formation of water droplets. This helps to maintain a drier and more comfortable environment while reducing the risk of moisture-related problems.
ACS HydroBar Anti Condensation Paint can be applied to a wide range of surfaces, including ceilings and walls. It is suitable for interior and exterior use, offering versatile protection against condensation in different areas of a building.
This paint is ideal for various applications, including hospitals, schools, farms, breweries, offices, factories, domestic properties, kitchens, shower rooms, and animal rearing sheds. In settings where condensation is a problem or causes spoilage, ACS HydroBar provides an effective solution.
To further enhance its performance, this paint contains an in-can biocide that protects the applied coating from fungal growth, ensuring long-lasting protection against mildew and mould.
When dry, ACS HydroBar Anti Condensation Paint provides an attractive matte finish, adding a touch of elegance to any space. It is easy to apply, and its low odour formula ensures a more pleasant experience during the application process.
Condensation Control: ACS HydroBar effectively reduces the incidence of condensation on ceilings and walls, preventing moisture-related issues such as mold, mildew, and staining.
Insulating Properties: The paint acts as an insulating layer, raising the surface temperature above the dew point, delaying the formation of surface condensation.
Moisture Absorption: ACS HydroBar absorbs atmospheric moisture during high humidity, reducing droplet formation and releasing trapped moisture as vapor when the relative humidity drops.
Fungal Growth Protection: The paint contains an in-can biocide that protects the applied coating from fungal growth, ensuring a clean and hygienic surface.
Matt Finish: ACS HydroBar dries to a beautiful matte finish, providing an aesthetic appeal to any space.
Versatile Application: Suitable for interior and exterior walls, as well as ceilings, ACS HydroBar can be used in various commercial, industrial, and domestic settings.
Easy Application and Maintenance: The water-based formula of ACS HydroBar makes it easy to apply and clean up, saving time and effort during the application process and subsequent maintenance.
Hospitals: ACS HydroBar is ideal for hospitals, where maintaining a clean and hygienic environment is crucial. It helps prevent condensation in patient rooms, operating theaters, and other high-moisture areas, reducing the risk of mold growth and maintaining air quality.
Schools: Educational facilities can benefit from ACS HydroBar by creating a comfortable learning environment free from condensation-related issues. It can be applied in classrooms, gyms, locker rooms, and washrooms, ensuring a healthy and conducive space for students and staff.
Farms: Condensation is a common problem in farm buildings, leading to moisture-related issues and potential damage to crops and livestock. Using ACS HydroBar in barns, animal-rearing sheds, and storage areas helps minimize the risk of condensation, protecting valuable assets and maintaining optimal conditions.
Breweries: Breweries often face challenges with high humidity and condensation due to the brewing process. Applying ACS HydroBar can help regulate moisture levels and create a stable environment for the production and storage of beverages, preventing spoilage and maintaining product quality.
Offices and Factories: In office spaces and manufacturing facilities, condensation can be a persistent issue, leading to deteriorating indoor air quality and potential damage to electronic equipment. ACS HydroBar can be applied to walls and ceilings, ensuring a dry and comfortable working environment free from moisture-related problems.
Domestic Properties: ACS HydroBar is equally suitable for domestic use, providing an effective solution for condensation in residential kitchens, shower rooms, and other areas prone to high moisture levels. It helps prevent mold and mildew growth, protects against surface staining, and contributes to the overall cleanliness and longevity of the property.
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.
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.
