WHEN JOINTS CAN HANDLE ANY AMOUNT OF WATER

Sika’s wide-ranging portfolio includes top-class elastic sealing and bonding solutions to meet all job site needs, for example joint sealants for facades or resistant sealants for floor and special joints as well as multipurpose bonding solutions for interior finishing or parquet and soft floor covering installations.

The growing demand in this market is fueled by the sharper focus on energy-efficient building envelopes, the ever greater variety of materials used in construction, the increasing volume of high-rise projects and the growing significance of health, safety and environmental issues.

INNOVATIONS

Sika launched the new SikaHyflex® family of high-performance sealants for the building envelope, which meet the strictest technical requirements and help to build sustainable and energy efficient buildings. Due to the growing significance of health and safety Sika, as market and technology leader for polyurethane sealants and adhesives, developed the new i-Cure® hardener technology which combines the best properties of traditional polyurethane sealant and adhesive technology with features such as very low emissions, solvent free and classification free.

Easy and safe application as well as high initial tack with a wide range of application possibilities are the key benefits of the newly launched Sika high tack adhesives for elastic multipurpose bonding, which can replace conventional fixing methods such as nails and screws.
