Sika invests in its industrial sealant offering

  • 25 Nov 2022

To strengthen the support and training for specifiers and engineers in finding the perfect product solution for industrial and commercial contracts, leading building chemicals specialist, Sika, has appointed Dean Bell to the role of Technical Engineer for Sealing and Bonding.

The new role is dedicated to supporting the sealing and bonding range including Sikaflex-423 Powercure – a rapid-cure, high-performance sealant and booster that is ideal for infrastructure projects such as sea and harbour walls, railways and industrial jobs including manufacturing plants and warehouses.

Engineers can now access tailored product training across Sika’s sealing and bonding range including the fast-curing Sikaflex-423 Powercure sealant which is ideal for projects that require a quick turnaround. Easy to prepare and apply, the product is fast curing even when applied at low temperatures.

Sika has developed Sikaflex-423 Powercure for use with its unique Sika Powercure Dispenser. This accurately mixes the correct ratios of sealant and booster for a quick and convenient direct application.

This not only offers a considerable time saving when compared to the traditional two-part products available on the market, but also reduces the risk of mixing errors which would impact on the effectiveness of the product.

What’s more the pre-mixed nature of the product also reduces waste, both in terms of the product itself, and its packaging as the foil refills represent a reduction of up to 60% packaging material.

Purform®

Manufactured using Sika’s own revolutionary new polyurethane technology, Purform®, it is both EU REACH and UK REACH compliant which means users will not need to undertake specific training in the future to use the product safely.

The innovative new Purform technology used to formulate Sikaflex-423 Powercure provides exceptional product application and performance properties.

Sika has a commitment to constant product development, with the dual aim of improving product performance and reducing the environmental impact where possible whether that’s through packaging, manufacturing facilities, or the products themselves.

The specialty chemicals manufacturer’s extensive UK range of high-performance sealing and bonding products including specialist products are all backed by Sika’s global research and development department, giving engineers peace of mind that they’re using fully compliant and future-proof products.
