Sika Tiling Systemfor Façades

FAÇADES

The penetration of water from exposed surfaces including terraces and balconies is one of the most common causes of the degradation of buildings. Fortunately there are Sika solutions that enable you to repair and upgrade these areas quickly and at a comparatively low cost without completely removing the existing finishes.

Installing of tiles on façades of buildings was always challenging and risky work. Sika has developed flexible tile adhesives and grouts that are capable of withstanding exposure to extreme weather conditions and the thermal movement of different façade materials. The high polymer content allows accommodation of movement due to wide and rapid temperature variations. The cement based tile grout also is waterproof with considerable flexibility, abrasion resistance and high mechanical strength; this grout is mixed with special latex to further increase its performance. Finally, joints and perimeters are sealed esthetically with elastic polyurethane based sealant, suitable for sealing joints subject to high movement.
