Expert Solutions for the Building Envelope

A building needs a high performance "envelope" that provides unyielding protection from the elements.  SikaSmart from Sika Corporation is designed to do just that.  Every portion of your building’s outer structure, from roof and exterior walls to basement, can be vulnerable to water intrusion and weathering causing wet insulation, air leakage and premature deterioration of construction materials.  These problems often result in costly, poor indoor air quality – even a shortened lifespan of your most valuable asset, the building itself.

It's your environment. Take control of it with building envelope solutions from Sika.

Sika Corporation has a remarkable 100 years of experience developing and producing a wide range of quality products and systems that cover, seal, bond, strengthen, reinforce, repair and protect every portion of a building’s outer structure.

Sika's line of single-ply and liquid-applied membranes deliver watertight protection and long- term durability for a wide variety of building applications and conditions.

Parking Garages

Select from a wide range of elastomeric, crack bridging waterproofing solutions specially developed to protect and repair concrete exposed to vehicular traffic. Cracks, leaks and other defects in concrete result in accelerated corrosion in reinforced concrete. Corrosion of steel in concrete leads to spalls which, at best are unsightly, and at worst pose a threat to public safety.  Sika solutions make concrete impermeable to water and other contaminates. Coatings protect walls and ceilings. High performance aliphatic topcoats offer application flexibility with custom decorative options.

Below Grade

Sika addresses the unique conditions of below grade construction with a variety of admixtures that make concrete impermeable to water, along with high performance waterstop products that result in watertight joints. High performance concrete is the key to producing a concrete that repels water, is more durable, and resists the cracking that often leads to corrosion.
