The need for improved project delivery and cost efficiency continues to increase. With this in mind, Sika has created the Concrete Essentials, representing a complete suite of products ideally suited for all project applications. For slab-on-grade applications, a package representing the essentials to minimize cracking, increase joint spacing and enhance finished surface quality / durability has been created. This suite of products demonstrates measurable benefits for the designer, contractor, and owner alike. Sika is able to provide an easier, less laborious, cost effective solution for your jobsite through the replacement of traditional reinforcement with concrete fibers and load transferring dowels, minimizing repair costs with high quality admixtures, and enhancing the overall quality of your slab with proper curing and post applied systems.
Shrinkage cracks in concrete can be caused due to multiple reasons, and there are multiple ways to stop them. The effectiveness of Sika's SRCA's in reducing cracks and compensating shrinkage is achieved by combining the technologies of expansive components and pore water surface tension reduction.
From Micro to Macro to Steel Fiber Blends, Sika has a full line of concrete reinforcing fibers.
The most specified concrete color systems in the industry - L.M. Scofield- a Sika Company, provides color for your concrete slab and flooring applications. Integral color, color hardeners, post applied-finishes, stains, and top coatings will provide vibrant, consistent color for the life of your structure.
Properly curing concrete is one of the most important steps in the placement of long lasting, durable concrete. Sika makes it easy with Sika UltraCure wet curing blankets. Protection of newly placed floors during the construction process is extremely important. Sika EZ-Cover blankets can produce the protection you need.
Sika load transferring products have long been known as products to improve concrete joint performance, including joints in slabs. Properly designed and constructed joints are key to producing a slab that will provide the owner years of service. Often subject to internal and external stresses, these joints must be designed to withstand many forces. Proper joint design includes a dowel system to transfer loads across and manage stresses within the joint.
