NEW ADDITIONS TO SIKA REPAIR MORTAR RANGE OFFER SPEEDIER, SIMPLER SOLUTIONS TO LARGE-SCALE BUILDING REFURB
Sika has added two innovative new products to its superb repair mortar range that will enable large-scale infrastructure refurbishment projects to be completed more quickly, simply and cost-effectively.
Suitable for use in horizontal or vertical repairs, Sika® MonoTop®-614F is a high-quality, fast-setting pourable grout; an ideal rapid-apply solution for a wide range of large-scale repair projects such as bridges, marine structures, tunnels and buildings. Generally compliant with Highways England (Agency) standards, this proven repair mortar contains shrinkage compensators and high range water-reducing agents, meeting the requirements of Class R4 of BS EN 1504-3.
Sika® MonoTop®-614F, a polymer-modified, one component solution, is capable of repair depths up to 150mm in one application, making it the superbly-practical and cost-effective alternative to hand-applied mortars.
For high-profile infrastructure repair projects involving bridges, overhead soffits and bridge decks where minimising down-time is a key requirement, SikaCem®-133GP Gunite, a cement-based, polymer-modified sprayable grout, offers the perfect solution. This incredibly effective and easy-to-apply repair mortar is particularly suitable for use on road or rail projects where strict deadlines and penalties for over-running works programmes apply.
SikaCem®-133GP Gunite is generally compliant with Highways England (Agency) standards and meets Class R4 of BS EN 1504-3 requirements.
