Sika develops and markets numerous admixtures and additives for use in concrete, cement and mortar production. These products enhance specific properties of the fresh or hardened concrete, such as workability, watertightness, durability, or early and final strength.

The demand for admixtures and additives is currently on the rise, particularly due to the increased performance requirements placed on concrete and mortar, especially in urban areas and for infrastructure construction. Furthermore, the growing use of alternative cementious materials in cement, mortar and thereby also in concrete, increases the need for admixtures.
