SikaTack® Panel System the Elegance in Wall Cladding
Good architecture is the key element for an aesthetically beautiful building that includes modern living comfort, energy-saving demand and sustainable investment.
The façade should be the defining element of a well-designed building. Ventilated facades offer all of the above requirements. And with SikaTack® Panel System, it comes to perfection. SikaTack® Panel Adhesive System is suitable for the fixing of composites, ceramic, high-pressure laminate, cement-based cladding panels, as well as many metal and powder coated substrates. This ingenious and straightforward system offers the designer and installer many advantages over comparable mechanical secret fixing systems.
For both new build and refurbishment, there are many benefits related to the SikaTack® Panel system
- Aesthetically pleasing – no screws or rivets are visible
- Elastic bonding – uniform tension over the whole panel and therefore no deflection of panels
- Approval by German Building Authority DIBT and ASTM
- Over 20 years of experience and global references
- SikaTack® Panel System has up to 40% less cost in comparison to hidden mechanical fixation.
Elastic Bonding Preferred to Mechanical Fixations
Experience Since 1990
Sika were the first who recognised the many benefits of elastic bonding compared to mechanical fixation for facade panels. Back in 1990, the first facades were made with elastic bonded panels.
The advantages of the elastic bonding were obvious; therefore, the system rapidly found its customers, first throughout Europe and now all over the world. The SikaTack® Panel System, which was developed back then, has lost none of its simplicity and safety in use to the present day.
The SikaTack® Panel system consists of an adhesive, prefixing tape and surface pre-treatment agents. It can be used both for direct on-site bonding or factory prefabrication. Both methods allow great design freedom.
