In the early 1980’s Sika discovered the teak caulking application as a potential market. By then, the application was executed with a two component polysulfide material.  The product and application showed issues during the mixing procedure as air was included by applying the product and whereby later bubbles became visible.  The one-component Sikaflex®, elastic polyurethane, made the process easier, faster and cleaner. Nowadays, Sikaflex® is the global reference for teak deck caulking.
