Product Quality and Reliability
Product quality and reliability have always been of crucial importance to Sika. The Sika triangle, the more than 100 years old visual symbol, is synonymous with performance, quality, reliability, and service worldwide. This attitude is emphasized by the corporate claim: Building Trust.
Product safety and precautionary measures are taken to mitigate the risks of all Sika’s products. Sika therefore seeks to advise through information leaflets on topics such as occupational safety, wearing of safety gloves, transportation, and storage of dangerous goods, etc. Information on material Safety Data Sheets (SDS) regarding the individual products can be found on the website of the local Sika companies.
Product Marketing and Labeling
Packaging is essential as it is used for the identification of Sika products. It enhances the appearance of the label for product promotion. In addition, labeling provides information about the correct and safe use of the product.
REACH, GHS, and CLP Regulations
In 2003, already four years before the European Chemical law on Registration, Evaluation and Authorization of Chemicals (REACH) came into force, Sika intensively addressed the topic with a project group. In 2004, the Group Management set up a central corporate REACH and Chemical Regulatory Department (the Regulatory & Product Compliance Department) to coordinate all corporate activities.This also covers the requirements of the Globally Harmonized System (GHS), Classification, Labeling and Packaging (CLP), as well as other relevant chemical legislation to improve the protection of human health and the environment from the risks that can arise from chemicals.
