Sika provides interior and exterior sealing and bonding, direct glazing, teak decking, as well as acoustic and decorative flooring systems in the manufacture and repair of leisure boats, commercial vessels, and offshore platforms.

Our elastic bonding and sealing solutions are designed with the marine environment in mind: resistance to water, sun, cleaning chemicals and fatigue. Sika offers a range of flooring products, each of which have a levelling and smoothing aspect as well as varying degrees of noise and vibration reduction properties coupled with fire performance in order to meet the requirements of both ship owners and regulatory bodies.

Insetta Boatworks - More Than Trust
From COO Joel Shine: "We're building boats. We're not manufacturing boats. There's a big difference." The custom shipbuilder prides itself on handcrafted boats that feature a unique hydrofoil catamaran-style hull, elevating performance and efficiency in the water. Insetta uses Sika's Adekit® A236-120 for deck-to-hull bonding, as well as Sikaflex®-291 and 295 UV on center consoles and thru-hull fittings.

Viking Yachts - 50+ Years of Better Boats
 "There's nothing better than putting a piece of glass in and knowing that it's going to stay there and not worry about it again." Based in New Jersey, Viking Yachts' Paul Raposa (Engineering Manager) shares some of their philosophies on shipbuilding, and where Sika fits in. Viking uses Sikaflex®-295 UV for window installation and SC 175 Epoxy Modeling Paste for tooling their own molds.
