Sika Refurbishment of The London Underground

Putting things to rights while the city sleeps The London Underground, commonly known as “the Tube”, is the oldest, second largest subway system in the world. The cast-iron tunnel ceiling beams at Embankment station which carry the full weight of the structure above date from 1870 and were urgently in need of renewal. After coating the beams with epoxy adhesives and installing strengthening plates the tunnel ceiling beams are now well-equipped to support the loads of another 100 years. Every night, the scaffolding was relocated, the cast-iron beams cleaned and primed, then coated with Sikadur® epoxy adhesive. The Sika® CarboDur® plates were then fixed to the beams.
