Bonding Agents are a line of epoxy adhesives in low and high modulus variations with multiple viscosities to guarantee a proper bond.
A crack injection using either Epoxy resin or Polyurethane resin, where movement is expected or water leakages have to be stopped quickly.
Crack Healer/Sealer is ideal for cracked or spider-webbed concrete. It is used for structural repair on porous or cracked topping slabs, industrial floors, parking decks, or loading docks.
Systems used to improve the structural capacity of the existing structural elements, which require additional strengthening, rehabilitation and repair.
Segmental Bridge Adhesives used for structural bonding of post-tension precast concrete bridge segments.
A line of epoxy adhesives used for structural bonding of concrete, masonry, wood, steel, etc..
Used as the binder resin for a skid-resistant broadcast overlay. Also, used as the binder resin for epoxy mortar and concrete for patching and overlays.
Sealants used to fill horizontal expansion joints and vertical control joints and cracks.
Products used as the binder resin for a skid-resistant broadcast overlay or high friction surface on bridges or roadways. Also, used as the binder resin for epoxy mortar and concrete for patching and overlays.

These are the common reasons for structural strengthening:
- Durability problems due to poor or inappropriate construction materials
- Inadequate design or construction
- Aggressive environments not properly understood during the design stages
- Increased loading requirements due to changes of policy or use of structures
- Increased life-span requirements made on ageing infrastructure
- Exceptional or accidental loading
Fiber Reinforced Polymers
Fiber reinforced polymers (FRP) are a proven technology for upgrading and strengthening concrete, masonry, and steel structures. These advanced composite materials have exceptionally high strengths, yet are very lightweight and easy to work with. They are used for increasing the capacity of existing buildings, seismically upgrading structures, correcting design or construction errors, and allowing modifications or changes in use.
- Economical and durable
- Easy application
- Extremely high tensile strength
- Outstanding fatigue behavior
- Absolute corrosion resistance
- Ability to upgrade structure while in use
- Upgrades possible even with limited access
Sika CarboDur® and SikaWrap® Systems
Sika CarboDur plates and SikaWrap fabrics have been used successfully on thousands of projects worldwide. The most common uses have been for flexural strengthening, shear upgrades and column confinement. However, they have many other uses, including strengthening for cut-outs, blast hardening, fire and structural damage, and upgrading structures damaged by corrosion.
