Sika South Africa has launched the new Sikalastic-560 waterproofing system for new roofs and refurbishments. It offers various colour choices and can be used to waterproof detailing and complex geometries.
The new Sikalastic-560 waterproofing system is a durable and versatile product suitable for waterproofing new roofs and for refurbishments to extend the lifecycle of roofs. It comes in various colour choices and can be used as reinforcement for detailing and complex geometries.
Fit for both horizontal and vertical surfaces, Sikalastic-560 is ideal for exposed waterproofing on roofs (non-walkable), as reinforcement over specific substrates with high movements and for external waterproofing under tiles (such as on balconies).
Based on Sika Co-elastic technology (CET), this hybrid, economical and eco-friendly liquid applied waterproofing solution is a completely seamless, fully bonded system with higher elastic and crack-bridging properties than conventional acrylic dispersion, which reduces the risk of leaks as a result from failures of overlaps. Being water-vapour permeable, it allows the building to breathe.
Sikalastic-560 is resistant to weathering, ultraviolet (UV) and yellowing, which means no colour changing or chalking as well as reducing dirt pick-up, even at high temperatures. Different life expectations are available according to the customers’ needs.
Being VOC-free, it is usable in sensitive buildings such as hospitals and schools, air siphoning for ventilations and air-conditioners, and since it has a very low odour, Sikalastic-560 makes for a comfortable installation. Tools can easily be cleaned with water and the application is rain-resistant after only four hours.
Sikalastic-560 provides excellent adhesion on porous and non-porous substrates, and can be applied to dry concrete, mortar, brick and stone, fibre cement, roof tiles, roofing felt, bituminous sheets and coatings, metal, wood and tiles.
