Two-Component 3D Concrete Printing is for You
2K or 2-component is used to refer to the number of modules in a material to make a product. Sika’s award-winning 2K system is a gantry equipment and accelerated printing materials together in a unique turn-key solution fully developed by Sika. This is an automated system utilizing several existing Sika technologies to produce very fast, precise, and high-quality printing.
The gantry system was developed by Sika and is fabricated under license with one of our partners. It consists of:
- Patented mixing station
- Patented printing head
- Computer and software
Also available from Sika are the only compatible Sikacrete®-7100 3D printing materials specially developed with the Sika 3DCP gantry equipment.
Sikacrete®-7000 3D consists of a cementitious powder and liquid polymer which is combined with water in the mixing station. Additional colors can be added to enhance the appearance. An activator is added in the print head which provides setting on demand.
- High compressive strength
- Fast printing speeds
- Adjustable setting time
- Long open time
- Printing at angles
3D Concrete Printer
Sikaprint Core System: System of stations that doses, mixes, and delivers the dry and wet Sikacrete®-7100 3D components to the patented print head. Also includes the software for the core system to communicate with the printing robot.
