Cement and concrete are core competencies of Sika, we develop and market numerous admixtures and additives for use in the production of cement to extensive ready-mix concrete operations; from site-batched concrete on large projects to precast concrete in factory conditions. These products enhance specific properties of the fresh or hardened concrete, such as workability, impermeability, durability, or early and final strength.
The demand for admixtures and additives is currently on the rise, particularly due to the increased performance requirements placed on concrete and mortar, especially in urban areas and for infrastructure construction.
