These systems have an impressive track record which goes back more than 15 years, and conform to the performance requirements of the more recent EN standards, demonstrating Sika’s historical commitment to providing long term technically correct construction solutions.
Construction Techniques Limited applied Sika® MonoTop®
– a cementitious two-component system which consists of polymer modified mortars – to smooth out the imperfections and to provide a cost effective solution ready for overcoating. With a good resistance to water and chloride penetration, it will help to protect the building’s concrete exterior from future damage.
To provide an overall layer of protection and in order to provide a striking design, Sikagard®-675W ElastoColor in four unique colours was applied to the concrete facade. Used to aesthetically enhance concrete substrates and particularly suited as a final protective coating for facades, the anti-carbonation treatment provides a high quality yet economical water-based, acrylic coating to protect against weathering and ageing.
With this project now complete – Sika offered the perfect regeneration solution for the refurbishment and long term protection of this residential tower block.
