Building on the success of Loxon XP, a direct-to-concrete, high-build masonry coating that requires no primer, Sherwin-Williams introduces a fine-texture version of the coating that will cover surface imperfections better for more aesthetically pleasing results. Loxon XP can be applied to fresh concrete and masonry less than 28 days old and cures more quickly than standard coatings, so construction schedules can be accelerated. It's designed for use on tilt-up, pre-cast or poured-in-place concrete, concrete masonry units (CMU), cement block and stucco surfaces. For more information, visit www.sherwin-williams.com.
