Polyurethane Sika solutions

Easy application, fast installation and economic, Sika’s polyurethane foams also provide excellent thermal and acoustic insulation, plus they are extremely resistant to corrosion and rot. This is why these foams are used extensively in new energy efficient and sustainable buildings. As a result, these polyurethane foams are extremely versatile and useful at helping them to insulate, install, assemble, fill, protect and isolate in anumber of applications.


Windows with insulating glass units provide excellent thermal insulation, however, the installation of the window or door frame into a building is equally important for the overall energy performance. Sika offers a variety of tailor-made solutions for all kinds ofwindow and door installation and insulation requirements. These solutions comprise Sikasil® and Sikaflex® sealants, moisture regulating membranes and tapes, highly expanding polyurethane foams (SikaBoom®) and other products.
