SIKA LAUNCHES SUSTAINABLE, RAPID-APPLY FLOORING RANGE

Global building products manufacturer, Sika, has launched a ‘next generation’ range of primers and coatings which fulfil the flooring market’s need for rapid, durable products with added sustainability.

Sikafloor®-150 and Sikafloor®-151 are multi-purpose primers which benefit the environment, as well as create durable, high-performance flooring. Comprising two-part, epoxy resin and suitable for use as levelling mortar and mortar screed, the products conform to the environmental ‘low-emitting materials’ standard: LEED v4 EQc 2. The primers’ low odour composition enhances their strong sustainable performance.

Sikafloor®-150 and Sikafloor®-151 are also notable for their rapid curing time; ensuring installers involved in the most complex of projects are able to meet the appointed deadline. Exhibiting excellent penetration due to their low viscosity, the primers are ideal for low-to-medium absorbent substrates.

In addition, Sika has launched Sikafloor®-2640 – a solution when reliable performance and rapid, easy application are a prerequisite. This two-part, epoxy floor coating and seal coat, which offers excellent blush resistance, provides either a seamless smooth, high gloss finish; or optimum slip, mechanical and chemical resistant profiles in areas such as car park decks, warehouses and manufacturing facilities, food and drink manufacturing plants, airport hangers, workshops and garages.

Sikafloor®-2640 is accredited to standards EN 15404-2: surface protection product for concrete – coating; and EN 13813: resin screed material for internal use in buildings. Simon Clark, Product Manager at Sika said: “We are extremely excited to be introducing these superb products to the marketplace. They are testament to our continued drive for innovation in developing flooring solutions which provide long-term benefit for our customers and the industry as a whole, whilst cementing our reputation as leaders in our field.”
