Damping reduces the number of vibrations felt by fixed and moving objects, minimizing the amount of movement and noise in load-bearing structures and cavities. Whether damping a car, bus, or cruise ship, the noise heard on the inside will be silenced, which increases the comfort level of passengers significantly.
Bonding joins various materials permanently. Vehicles, windows, and even massive slabs of concrete are bonded using innovative chemicals. Sika bonding technologies increase the safety of the final products and enable greater design freedom. The application of bonding products also optimizes manufacturing by reducing cycle times.
Sealing minimizes the flow of gases and liquids between cavities as well as the dispersion of heat or cold. Whether constructing flat roofs, zigzagging tunnels or sophisticated facades, conquering the elements is no longer a pipe dream with the application of a quality sealer. Everyday infrastructures become impervious to wind and rain, extreme temperatures, age, and vibration. From the inside, sealing makes rooms more comfortable and functional.
