Sika Watertight

Sika is the market leader in Concrete admixture technology, now the most widely used system of its type in the UK.

Combining this with our concrete expertise means that Mick George Concrete are able to provide comprehensive waterproof Concrete solutions for a wide range of projects and structures.

A two-step process is used to achieve a waterproof concrete:

Step 1: Reduce the water cement ratio, increasing the density of the mix and minimising the size of the pores whilst producing a highly workable concrete to aid placement and compaction.

Step 2: Block the remaining capillary pores ensuring a complete watertight finish.

Sika Watertight

The system consists of concrete that has been specially modified with Sika admixtures to produce watertight concrete; and carefully selected waterstops for construction and movement joints. Watertight concrete structures can be designed to keep water in or out, or both making the perfect waterproof Concrete solution for a whole range of projects.

The need to maximise design flexibility has led owner and designer to look below ground as an alternative, whether for basement parking or a habitable environment.

Sika Benefits

The advantages of the Sika® Watertight Concrete System are clear:

Admixtures

Due to its capillaries and pores, concrete is a naturally-porous material. The Sika® Watertight Concrete System incorporates a range of admixtures to improve its resistance to infiltration; effectively sealing the concrete permanently against the penetration of water and other liquid – creating a waterproof Concrete, while creating the optimum water/cement ratio.
