The key to future success will lie in the development of intelligent solutions to challenges we face by climate change, efficient infrastructure, clean energy, drinking water and ecosystem protection. We at Sika have already begun to develop and implement these solutions with our clients.

Sika grinding aids and performance enhancers represent creative solutions developed to improve the production efficiency of cement grinding plants. In addition, these products improve the granulometry as well as powder flowability of the finished cement. A typical dosage of grinding aid increases the throughput of the cement mill by over 10% while simultaneously reducing the relative power consumption per ton of ground cement by about 10%.

As wind turbines are best positioned in exposed locations with plenty of wind available, they are also subject to a wide range of corrosive attacks, from salty or polluted atmosphere, high humid- ity, temperature shocks, and the UV radiation of the sun. Around the world, Sika reliably protects wind turbines from top to bot- tom – on sea and land comprising blades, machine compartments, hubs and gear boxes, steel and concrete towers and foundations. With their high efficiency, Sika systems guarantee economic and durable protection for an energy form with a clean history and a promising future.

Concrete water reservoirs that must be waterproof have to be designed as such from the start. But even good quality concrete will allow some passage of water. With the Sika Watertight Concrete Concept, the load bearing concrete structure simultaneously becomes the sealing shell. The latest admixture technology and concrete mix designs are used in combination with high quality joint sealing systems to achieve a watertight concrete structure. With this, no additional externally applied coatings are needed.

Sika strengthening systems provide a powerful solution for bolstering infrastructure which combines modern composite materials with Sika adhesive technology. Strengthening is effected by bonding fiber-reinforced polymer materials such as carbon fiber plates and fabrics onto weakened spots in a structure. The advantages of such strengthening techniques are manifold: low weight, low structural height, high geometric flexibility, no corrosion, fast application and efficient handling.
