Leading speciality chemicals company, Sika’s, renowned waterproofing products and expertise resulted in efficient and quick roof repairs for Frimax Foods, one of South Africa’s largest producers of potato- and corn-based snacks, based in Verulam, KwaZulu-Natal.
The Sika team’s superb technical expertise, detailed product knowledge and willingness to go the extra mile, despite stringent lockdown regulations, ensured that Frimax Foods’ operations could run smoothly throughout the critical roofing repairs.
R&D Contracting, which was tasked with the administration building’s repairs, collaborated with Sika to decide on the best solution for their client.
Mark Duckham, technical sales representative at Sika, says this project called for the use of two of Sika’s pioneering products, recommending Sikalastic®-560, reinforced with Sika®Reemat Premium. Duckham says these products were best suited, given the detailing and complex geometry of the client’s roof.
Seamless application of the embedded base-coat layer of Sika®Reemat Premium, followed by a double layer of Sikalastic®-560 topcoat, made quick work of waterproofing the client’s roof with lasting results.
