SIKA'S HISTORY OF INNOVATION BEGAN IN 1910 WITH THE CREATION OF AN INTEGRAL WATERPROOFING ADMIXTURE - "SIKA 1".

 

Since that time, Sika has continually improved on these technologies and introduced more products to suit customer needs. With both hydrophobic, pore blocking and crystalline products available, Sika's solutions will make your next project watertight for the duration of its service life.


The two core product technologies in permeability reducing admixtures are hydrophilic crystalline and hydrophobic pore blocking. Sika is the only manufacturer to offer both
product technologies!


Sika's hydrophilic crystalline permeability reducing admixture (Sika® WT-240 P) and
hydrophobic pore blocking admixture (Sika® Watertight Concrete Powder) can be
used to effectively reduce concrete permeability in hydraulic structures to
retain water or keep it from infiltrating conditioned spaces.


Integral admixtures provide expedited structure completion and reduced labor costs when compared to traditional waterproofing construction using loose-laid or adhered
waterproofing membranes.


Additionally, below ground structures using permeability reducing admixtures are less sensitive to structure backfill procedures, which can damage alternative waterproofing technologies.
