Sika as world leading producer of sealants and wood floor adhesives introduces the next generation of pretreatments for different application fields.

Wood floor bonding

Substrate pretreatment is often necessary for proper wood floor bonding for example as substrate consolidation, dust binder or as moisture retarder. Sika has recently launched the environmentally friendly pretreatment solution Sika Primer MR Fast. It is a two-part, fast drying, water borne primer that fulfills the requirements of the low emission certificate Emicode EC1R plus and LEED v3 IEQ4.1 – low emitting materials. The Sika Primer MR Fast can replace common primers and moisture retarders without any compromises regarding performance.

Facade joint sealing

Nowadays, most common primers which are used for façades are solvent based. With the introduction of Sika Primer-4 W, Sika launches a two-part, water borne primer which combines the technical excellence of solvent based products with the ecological advantages of water based systems. This Sika Primer-4 W suits optimal to the new solvent free SikaHyflex sealant range for building envelopes and all other proven Sikaflex façade sealants.
