Sherwin Williams Loxon XP


Has anyone used Sherwin Williams Loxon XP yet?



I took a tour of the Sherwin Williams plant in Orlando last week and they were making some pretty huge claims about this product.
Streches 350% to bridge cracks like elastomerics but it breathes and doesn't fade or attract dirt like elastomerics do.

Just wanted to see if anyone was using this product. If you are using this... how do you apply it? How many coats, what primer (if any), and how thick do you put it on? I think they said it needed to be applied at 15 mils and then dries to 7 mils in one coat.

Yeah, Loxon is good stuff! :Thumbs: It's mainly used for masonry/stucco...Used it at another company in new construction. We applied the Loxon concrete conditioner 7 days after it's put up, and painted right over it without even having to wait for the concrete to cure. Their official coating systems catalog recommends two topcoats, but we only used one....sprayed and backrolled. Always had good results with it too...

AA, would that Loxon be good for a basement (cement)floor?

I've used Loxon for a while... but Loxon XP is new and very different than the old Loxon.

If applied as SW tells you to, it actually qualifies as a Water Proofing system that Sherwin Williams backs up. Since I'm down here in Florida thats a great promise to be able to make!

No, I wouldn't use this on a basement floor. I'd be looking into something like ArmorSeal® 1K Waterbased Urethane Floor Enamel...but you've gotta have a dry slab. Or ArmorSeal 1K TreadPlex Waterbased Acrylic so it can breathe a little....If the slab is wet and you're trying to seal it, then it's over my head, heh!
