Rigid Bonding

Concrete Elements

Sika provides a range of special epoxy adhesives for bonding of large scale concrete segments during segmental bridge construction work. Other applications for bonding concrete elements with Sikadur adhesives are important in many other areas including roofs, concrete pipes, retaining walls, tanks etc.

Steel, Carbon Fiber and Glass Fiber Elements

Sikadur epoxy adhesives have been widely used since the 1960’s to bond steel plates on concrete structures, and these special adhesives are also used to bond new or replacement parts and components onto concrete structures, as well as composite sections based on glass or carbon fiber.

New Concrete and repair

Additional to adhesives for structural bonding of various substrates, Sika also offers bonding bridges for the connection of old and new concrete, as well as epoxy based mortars for fast repairs.
