PowerCure won the Red Dot Award 2018

AWARD FOR HIGH DESIGN QUALITY: SIKA’S POWERCURE ADHESIVE SYSTEM RECEIVES RED DOT

Zurich, April 9, 2018. The Red Dot jury has made its decision: After all of the products submitted were tested and assessed individually in the course of an evaluation process spanning several days, the PowerCure Adhesive System from Sika, received the distinction “Red Dot”. The panel of experts awards the internationally recognized seal of
quality only to products that win them over with their high design quality.  

POWERCURE ADHESIVE SYSTEMS

PowerCure is the ultimate solution for accelerated sealing and bonding now available in a smaller version, too. It is a system solution based on new packaging, mixer and adhesive dispenser that provides a so far unseen usability for accelerated adhesives. PowerCure is full of new technology, protected by more than 13 patents. A range of products make the system the ideal solution when fast curing adhesives and sealants matter.  

EVALUATION PLATFORM FOR GOOD DESIGN

The Red Dot Award: Product Design has roots dating back as far as 1955 and determines the best products created each year. In 2018, designers and manufacturers from 59 countries submitted more than 6,300 objects to the competition. True to the motto “In search of good design and innovation”, a jury comprising roughly 40 members assessed the products individually based on the original. The strict judging criteria, which include level of innovation, functionality, formal quality, ergonomics and durability, provide a frame of reference which the jurors then complement with their own expertise.

A choice of three different distinctions are awarded: The Red Dot: Best of the Best is reserved for the best products in a category, while the Red Dot is the distinction for high design quality. An Honourable Mention is awarded for a particularly well-executed aspect of design work.

“I want to congratulate the award winners sincerely on their wonderful success in the Red Dot Award: Product Design 2018. Success in the competition is proof of the good design quality of the products and once again shows that companies are on the right path. When I speak about good design, I am referring to more than just an attractive product. All of the products are characterised by outstanding functionality. This demonstrates that the designers have understood their clients and their needs”, said Professor Dr. Peter Zec, founder and CEO of the Red Dot Award.
