Bonding in interior Finishing
For Bonding of interiors Sika can provide the optimum solutions for interior finishing which meet all of the design and performance specifications in full. We work in close collaboration with architects, engineers and specialist contractors to achieve this. Bonding is often a better alternative to conventional screwing and nailing for many reasons including aesthetic, speed and cost. With Sika’s extensive product range, the right solution can be provided for almost any bonding requirement during the finishing phase.
Bonding the Building Envelope
Façades are exposed to very high stresses from the wind, weathering and temperature fluctuations. Therefore, very high demands are made on the bonding adhesives used for these rainscreen cladding systems and glazing systems. Sika has all of the necessary knowledge and the right products and system solutions that have been extensively tested and used on some of the most ambitious projects around the world.
Adhesive bonding can be broadly divided into three categories, namely non-structural, semi-structural and structural:
- Non-structural: The bonded joints are subject to nominal stress.
- Semi-structural: The bonded joints are required primarily to distribute load, the load is carried elsewhere.
- Structural: The bonded joints must be able to carry all the load, at service load or at both service and ultimate loads.
