Sherwin Williams Elladur LM is a high-build polyaspartic / polyurea type fast-cure line marking floor coating. Elladur LM is formulated to provide a tough coloured gloss finish.
Sherwin Williams Elladur™ LM is light stable with very good chemical resistance and can be applied to a variety of finishes and surfaces. Additional slip resistance can be created by incorporating suitable aggregates.
Sherwin Williams Elladur™ LM is recommended for line marking where a high build, UV stable coating is required. With a fast return to service, this product can also be applied at low temperatures. suitable for application on medical, commercial and industrial floor areas. Also suitable for decorative floors or domestic areas.
- Fast curing at low temperature
- High build
- UV stable
- Very low odour
- Tough but flexible
- Can be applied onto a wide range of substrates
- Can be used in commercial and industrial applications
Products required for this system
Primer : Sherwin Williams Elladur™ SF Colour can be used as primer at 100 microns on dry substrates with less than 75% ERH or use R.S. Dampshield FH on damp surfaces where moisture levels are an issue.
New Concrete Floors: New concrete must be clean, sound, dry and fully cured and surface laitance removed preferably by vacuum enclosed shot blasting or mechanical grinding, a minimum strength of 25N/mm2 is required.
Timber Floors : Must be clean, sound, dry . Old clear varnish/topcoat must be removed/sanded and surface must be primed prior to application.
Existing Concrete Floors: Remove all dirt, oil, grease old paints or other surface contaminants by vacuum enclosed shot blasting, scarifying or mechanical grinding. Fats, oils or greases must be removed by mechanical means and detergent washing. Local repairs should be carried out using Sherwin Williams Resupatch or Sherwin Williams Resuscreed 45.
Existing Floors ( previously coated ): All previous coatings and loose floor paints must be removed by mechanical preparation as described in the above section and
primed as specified. if the old resin flooring cannot be removed, then please consult with our technical team for advise on intercoat adhesion and suitability, as it may not be compatible with existing floor coating.
Where over-coating other systems such as epoxy coatings or screeds, as part of a specified composite system in the data sheets please follow the recoat time as stated, these should be tack free, but not fully cured. If fully cured then mechanical preparation is required to ensure intercoat adhesion.
Where Elladur™ LM is applied to masonry/concrete surfaces, care must be taken to ensure that surface preparation is thorough but does not disfigure the surface.
Elladur™ LM may be applied to an existing resin floor systems where a primer is not required. When applied direct to porous substrates such as concrete the surface must be primed with Sherwin Williams Elladur™ SF Colour to ensure good adhesion to the surface. Where the Relative Humidity of the substrate exceeds 75%
R.S. Dampshield FH should be specified and selected on the basis of hygrometer readings in accordance with BS 8203. The number of coats to be applied is chosen in accordance with the following table.
ERH% Required Coating Thickness
- 75-85 - 1 coat of Sherwin Williams R.S. Dampshield FH at 200 microns per coat
- 85-92 - 2 coats of Sherwin Williams R.S. Dampshield FH at 200 microns per coat
- 92-97 - 3 coats of Sherwin Williams R.S. Dampshield FH at 200 microns per coat
Mixing: Pre-mix the base component to a uniform consistency then add the entire contents of the hardener to the base and mix by using a slow speed electric mixer for approximately for two minutes to achieve consistent mixture. Do not use a separate mixing bucket as it may affect the mixing ratio. A rubber blade and/or a short haired roller can work best for this application to help avoid incorporating extra air and moisture in the coating.
It is important to ensure that the recoat times are observed, with a maximum recoat of 8 hrs measured at 20°C substrate temperature and 50% relative humidity. For other conditions please consult with our technical team. It is strongly recommended to apply second coat as soon as the first coat has lost the tackiness to achieve the maximum adhesion. If the maximum recoating interval is exceeded then surface must be prepared and roughened to ensure intercoat adhesion.

The manufacturers data sheets are available for download from this website. It is your responsibility to read and understand all aspects of the data sheets before you place an order and prior to application. Please pay special attention to the preparation, mixing and application temperatures of the product, cleaning of substrate and environmental factors such as temperature, rain etc. Quoted coverage rates are based on the manufacturers theoretical rates and may vary depending upon substrates absorption, texture and application. We always recommend a test is carried out to ensure suitability.
