Sika® Secures The Long Term Future of Halifax Tower Blocks
With the requirement for a cost effective, reliable and efficient way to repair damaged concrete surfaces and extend the life of four towers blocks in Halifax, leading concrete repair specialist JDF Restoration specified an advanced concrete repair system from global building product manufacturer Sika.
Property Repair Project Requirements
Built in the 1965, the four 15 storey tower blocks in Mixenden required refurbishment due to concrete deterioration. With the intention of repairing and protecting to provide longevity and extend the life of the buildings, the specification included the Monotop repair system and the anti-carbonation coating Sikagard® 675W ElastoColor for the reinforced concrete frame with the fast cure balcony coating Sikafloor® 415 for the re-coating to the balconies.
Sika Concrete Repair Solutions
JDF applied Sika® MonoTop® – a cementitious two-component system consisting of polymer modified mortars – to make primary repairs to the concrete frame of each block prior to cladding. With good resistance to water and chloride penetration, the system provides long term protection to prevent future damage to the buildings’ concrete structure.
