Sika Canada

Launched in 1997, these structural reinforcement application processes had a large-scale roll out in the marketplace.  The efficiency of these systems was proven with the thousands of successful projects over the years, whether it be in commercial, industrial or civil engineering sectors.

These avant-garde techniques increase the capacity of concrete works without increasing the dead load or modifying the overall dimensions.  Depending on the chosen measures, they can increase resistance to tension and bending forces.

  • Reinforcing existing structures
  • Increasing the load capacity of certain structures
  • Correcting calculation or construction errors
  • Repairing structures damaged by corrosion, fire, impacts or aging
  • Changing the building’s purpose
  • Conforming to codes
  • Modifying the structure (removing slabs, walls, beams, etc.)
  • Seismic revaluation
  • Highly resistant
  • Lightweight
  • Non-corrosive
  • Unlimited length
  • Minimal preparation required
  • Very easy to install
  • High elasticity
  • Exceptionally high fatigue strength
  • Alkali-resistant

Sikacrete 213-F®, Fire-Protection

Sika Canada also developed a mortar that offers fire protection. Sikacrete® can offer at least 4 hours of fire resistance when used in combination with Sika® Carbodur® or SikaWrap®.

This mortar respects strict standards, and its evaluation was conducted by Underwriters Laboratories of Canada (ULC) according to the following standards and methods: standard methods for building construction and materials fire endurance testing (CAN/ULC-S101), standards for building construction and materials fire resistance testing (ANSI/UL263) and standard methods to test the fire resistance of building construction and materials (ASTM E119/NFPA251).

  • Easy preparation (just add water)
  • Light weight, low density and minimal rebound
  • Formula and spray method reduce consumption
  • Does not contribute to the formation of smoke and toxic fumes in a fire
