Product Range:

Sika 1 Pre-bagged Waterproofing System

Sika 1 is designed for below ground applications including basement waterproofing and swimming pool waterproofing. Comprising all necessary mortars, screeds and renders, Sika 1 utilises a specially made admixture which provides its watertight seal. Once applied, the Sika 1 admixture reacts with moisture by expanding into a jelly-like substance, blocking all cracks and capillaries - to leave a permanently impregnable seal. The Sika 1 multi-coat render waterproofing system has been used for basement waterproofing, swimming pool waterproofing and other underground structures for more than 100 years.

Sika Cavity Drainage System

Sika Cavity Drainage System comprises profiled polyethylene and polypropylene sheeting which, once installed to both walls and floors, will allow water seepage to flow into drainage sumps for pumping into the main drainage system. Cavity drainage systems like the Sika Cavity Drainage System prove ideal for basements with weak, friable masonry unable to withstand an increase in water pressure.

Injection Systems

Sika water stopping injection systems can be used to seal water bearing and dry cracks and joints or to provide a waterproof curtain behind the structural envelope to stop water penetrating into the structure. Injection systems can also be used in new build projects to seal concrete joints.
