Sika products are hard at work everyday all around you. From the car you drive to the floor you stand on, to the roof above your head, there is a good chance that a Sika product is reinforcing, bonding, sealing, protecting, waterproofing, and/or strengthen something in your everyday. At the same time our people and their tireless passion and work are innovating and improving products and the customer experience. See a brief reflection of this in these product and project profiles in Sika at Work.
As one of the heaviest traveled roadways in Michigan, a quick yet effective solution needed to be achieved to repair the deteriorating conditions of the I-96/I-275 corridor between the Detroit and Lansing areas. With high early strength and minimal slump loss, Sika® Rapid-1 allowed for easy concrete placement and minimal lane restrictions. As a result, Sika® Rapid-1 is now specified by Michigan DOT.
The precast elements on this project were completed utilizing the Sika PerFin-305, a surface enhancing admixture. In this project surface appearance of the precast elements was of high importance.
This project is a good example of the structural beauty that can be achieved through the use of ViscoCrete self consolidating concrete (SCC) for exposed architectural concrete.
The Lincoln Memorial was leaking 30 million gallons of potable water annually. So in 2012 it was completely replaced. The pool was reconstructed utilizing Sika Watertight Powder, Shrinkage Reducing Admixture and Sika Greenstreak Waterstop to ensure that the structure would be completely watertight.
