1. Roofing Solutions

Sarnafil® Roof Membranes

Sarnafil® membranes are the best time tested solution to stay watertight (application by trained and registered contractors).

Sarnafil® membranes have a proven long term manufacturing experience of over 50 years.

Sarnafil® membranes are UV and fire-resistant, provide excellent wind uplift resistance and are FM approved.

Sarnafil® membranes provide a long life cycle, low environmental impact; are recyclable and LEED, Green Globes®; BBA, BREEAM®; DGNB® and NSF compliant.

Sarnafil® Mechanically Attached & Adhered Systems

Multiple Installation Options
The Sarnafil® range includes products from both installation options: Mechanically fastened or adhered.

The mechanically fastened version allows for fast application by installing fasteners and plates through the membrane seam to the approved substrate and is the economical choice. The adhered version is secured to the approved substrate using adhesive, providing the best solution for an esthetically pleasing yet robust assembly, that contours well to uniquely shaped roofs. It does not require any fastener penetration through the membrane.

The Sarnafil® mechanically attached system is an excellent option for metal or wood deck system assemblies. The Sarnafil® adhered system can be applied on steel, concrete or wood deck assemblies.

Sarnafil® Self-Adhered System

Quick & Easy
The Sarnafil® Self-Adhered System only requires a one-step pressure-sensitive “peel and stick” application process without the labor and VOC fumes associated with liquid primers and adhesives.

The Sarnafil® self-adhered system allows for a fast & robust as well as cost-competitive application in accelerating the construction schedule by eliminating the need for additional adhesives or solvents, not requiring any cure time and reducing the amount of waste.

The Sarnafil® self-adhered system can be applied to steel, wood and concrete assemblies. It is excellent for cold weather applications.

SikaShield® Bitumen - Adhered Roofing System

Safe & Secure
Self-adhered vapor barriers, base and cap sheet to provide safer and secure solution with flame-free installation.

Fast and easy bituminous solution for flammable or small areas, wooden substrates, vertical surfaces, or any other situation where torch cannot be an option.

Can be applied on steel, concrete or wood deck assemblies.

SikaShield® Bitumen - Torch-Applied Roofing System

Wide range of bituminous membranes for all types of application, uses and requirements.

Versatile option for a waterproofing system with high resistance to mechanical damages and punctures, dimensional stability and durability.

Can be applied on concrete, screeds and old bitumen coverings.

Sika® SolarMount-1 (SSM1) Roof System

PV Mounting System
Sika® SolarMount-1 is a non-penetrating system designed and engineered to perform under extreme conditions.

Sika® SolarMount-1 reduces the amount of required labor by being surface mounted via hot air welding to the Sarnafil® membrane without any penetrations. Normally, no ballast is required for installation.

Sika® SolarMount-1 is versatile and lightweight, wind tested and warranted.

3. Concrete Solutions

Sika® Admixtures and SikaFiber®

Shrinkage Reducing, Compensating Admixtures
Sika® admixtures and SikaFiber® accelerate the construction schedule, increase the life span of the concrete slab and allow for increased joint spacing.

Save time and money: Eliminate steel reinforcement, submittals; shop drawings and installation labor. Sika® admixtures and SikaFiber® can possibly save 12 – 20% over conventional steel reinforcement slabs.

Sika® Admixtures and SikaFiber® minimize shrinkage, reduce cracking while increasing hardness, durability, and sustainability by extending the life cycle and lowering the maintenance costs of concrete slabs.
