SIKA SELECTION GUIDE FOR BRIDGE SOLUTIONS

In the United States of America, infrastructure is deteriorating at an alarming pace. In 1988, the American Society of Civil Engineers released its first  Infrastructure Report Card, an assessment of the state of American infrastructure, giving the US a “C” letter grade overall. In the 30 years since, the overall infrastructure rating has continued to decline, most recently receiving a “D+” grade.

Sika has the expertise and experience to innovatively support design ideas and the fulfillment of different requirements in bridge construction.
