Energy Efficient Building Envelopes
Sika solutions enable heat losses in buildings to be greatly deminished. As an integrated supplier of construction chemicals, the company offers sustainable solutions for roofing systems, facades, floor coatings, interior finishing, sealing of doors and windows, or waterproofing of basements. With Sika’s light-reflective roofing systems alone, energy consumption can be reduced by up to 15%. In addition, green roofs by Sika can provide a valuable habitat for plants, insects, and birds, serve as a place of water storage for the controlled release of water in the event of heavy rainfall, and reduce the so-called “heat-island effect”. In all phases of the building life cycle – during construction, operation, and refurbishment – Sika products help to reduce the carbon footprint.
