This segment features concrete protection and repair solutions, for example repair mortars, protective coatings, grouts, and structural strengthening systems. It also includes products for interior finishing, such as leveling compounds, tile adhesives, and tile grouts. Sika provides technologies for the entire life cycle of commercial buildings, residential properties, and infrastructure constructions. Especially in developed markets, many structures are decades old and need to be refurbished. The present uptrend in demand is attributable to a rising volume of infrastructure rehabilitation projects in the transport, water management, and energy sectors. The global urbanization trend and the increasing need for renovation in developed markets are also fueling demand.

Innovations

The SikaGrout®-3000 series is a new portfolio of cementitious grouts specially developed for the on- and offshore wind energy industry. These high performance mortars are an important part of the wind tower structural design as they can be used to fill voids and transfer extreme loads and forces. The unique SikaCeram®-500 Ceralastic 2-in-1- waterproofing mortar and tile adhesive reduces working time by 30 % and storage space by 45 %. As a 2-in-1 product SikaCeram®-500 Ceralastic also eliminates long waiting times between working steps. On horizontal application only one coat is required instead of the traditional three.
