Water Based Epoxy Floor Paint (Hydracoat Original)

Product Code : HCOP-001

Vubacoat Hydracoat Original is a two part water based epoxy floor paint designed to seal and protect a range of floor surfaces.


This water based epoxy floor paint is a cost effective way of painting over new concrete slabs and screeds quickly and effectively without blistering, where other non moisture tolerant epoxy coatings would prove unsuitable. This paint is also an excellent DIY beginners’ choice due to the extended pot life and usability of the material.


Hydracoat water based floor paint and sealer is a cost and time effective DIY option when sealing new concrete slabs and screeds that require moisture tolerance to avoid blistering. This water dispersed epoxyfloor paint is typically used on domestic and commercial floors in supermarkets, garages, basements, industrial food preparation areas, where solvent based products are prohibited.


This low odour, non taint water based floor paint effectively dust proofs concrete surfaces and provides hard wearing, hygienic and attractive finish.

Hydracoat Original (Water Based Floor Paint) faq's

  • How far does a unit of Hydracoat go?
    Ultracoat covers 20m2 in one coat, when applied as part of a two coat system. If you're applying in one coat, you would require a lower coverage of approximately 15m2 to guarantee complete opacity. 
  • How new / wet can the concrete be for applying Hydracoat Original?
    Hydracoat Original is water emulsifiable epoxy floor paint, and therefore is tolerant to the release of residual moisture contained within a subfloor when curing. The surface should be touch dry, but sub surface moisture is released at a rate of 5mg/m2 per day, sufficient to allow full curing without blistering the top coating.
  • It is a water based floor paint, so do that mean it is not epoxy?
    The pot life of Ultracoat is 25 - 30 mins, however, you have more time to apply the industrial floor paint when it is spread out on the working surface. 
  • What finish does it achieve - gloss, silk, matt?
    The final finish is a silk semi-sheen, the perfect inbetween for a floor coating. We have products available in alternative finishes - Hydracoat Naturale is a matt finish, and our three main high build epoxies are all gloss - EP Shield Supreme, Epoxyshield and Ultracoat.
  • Is Hydracoat Original anti slip?
    We do have an anti slip grade of Hydracoat, called Hydragrip. It's available to buy online!
  • How do I apply this water based floor paint?
    You can apply simply using a roller and brush. The required rollers, brushes and trays are available to purchase from us at fantastic prices. 
  • How long before I can use my garage / workshop / warehouse floor? 
    Hydracoat cures by a chemical reaction, and will usually reach full cure after 24 hours - temperature dependent. Intercoat period is 12-16 hours.
