Raw Materials and Manufacturing
Climate protection roofing solutions: Sika provides roofing systems with a low Global Warming Potential (GWP). This means a reduced Carbon Footprint.
Long lasting roofing systems
Durability: Investing into highly durable roofing systems that have stood the test of time – saving energy and resources as well as cost over the life time of a building.
Use and maintenance
Saving energy: Sika roofing systems can save energy by incorporating high performance thermal insulation. Sika solar reflective membranes help save energy by increasing the albedo and as a consequence reducing the cooling energy demands and contributes to the reduction of the urban heat island effect.
Sika Solar Reflective Membranes
Generating energy: Sika SolaRoof™ systems allow you to produce energy right on top of your roof, whilst Sika solar reflective membranes also improve photovoltaic panel efficiency.
Sika Green Roofing Systems
Improving the microclimate: Sika green roofing systems help to improve the microclimate and to mitigate the development of urban heat islands and help mange water run-off from roofs.
Sika provides a wide range of thermal insulation specially designed and manufactured for optimal performance as part of the Sika roofing systems.
The importance of rooftop solar applications was recognized early by Sika, because its Solar Reflective (SR) membranes can increase the performance of Photovoltaic (PV) panels.
Green Roofs are one of the most exciting developments in sustainable building design. Also called vegetated roofs, eco roofs, or living roofs, green roofs offer a number of sustainable benefits.
White highly reflective membranes dramatically increase reflectivity and reduce both the heat island effect and the cooling energy consumption requirements for buildings.
Sika has been recycling production waste and roll edge trimmings since the 1960’s. The company was a pioneer in the development of recycling for used roofing membranes.
