induro® XLA ANTI-SLIP Floor Lacquer

XLA ANTI-SLIP is a two pack waterborne polyurethane lacquer that is highly resistant to scuffs, spills and marks. Suitable for domestic and commercial high traffic areas with wooden floors. induro® XLA ANTI-SLIP meets wet slip accreditation BS 7976-2. This varnish is designed to reduce slip potential in bars, clubs, hospitals, schools, shopping centres and all other high-traffic public areas. 

Use after induro® GP Seal / ISO Seal and 2 - 3 coats of induro® XL2 for a strong yet flexible varnish. Maintain SPORT with induro ®Maintenance products.


Prior to starting the sanding process the floor should be checked for any protruding nail or screw heads and these should either be removed or countersunk. All wooden floors requiring varnish will have to be sanded. Newly laid floors are sanded to achieve a nice level floor and old floors are sanded to remove existing finishes and to level out worn and heavily used areas.

Sanding will have to be carried out in several grit stages and this will be dependent on the unevenness and general condition of the floor.


Morrells standard Light Fast range of stains give excellent grain definition and overall colour. Due to this range being spirit based (fast drying), care should be taken on application not to stain too large an area at once as this could lead to a patchy appearance once the stain is dry.

  1. Stain should be applied by brush/rag or mohair pad
  2. Remove excesses with a clean rag

It is important to remove as much of excess stain as possible so as not to create a film as this could result in poor adhesion of subsequent coats of lacquer.

Stains intended for other uses i.e. decking, fencing, garden furniture etc should not be considered for floors as these will contain water-repelling properties, and therefore water based floor lacquers would not adhere to these stains.

Application Guidelines

  1. Do not denib the sealer
  2. Denib between coats of induro® XL2 and XLA
  3. mix 9 parts lacquer to 1 part catalyst by volume
  4. add catalyst into the can of lacquer, replace top, turn upside down and shake vigorously for 1 minute
  5. allow lacquer to stand for 5 minutes before use (use within 5 hours of mixing)
  6. apply using a short mohair roller or similar, or mohair flooring pad or t-bar applicator
  7. apply lacquer evenly making smooth passes, predominantly along the grain
  8. avoid pooling of lacquer
