Sika, a global pioneer of specialty chemicals for construction and industry, will showcase its liquid-applied membranes at Coverings 2024. The company will present its SikaTile crack-isolation and waterproofing solutions stressing the importance of protective membranes to tile and stone installation longevity. 

The company will present its industry-leading crack-isolation membrane, SikaTile-200 Fracture Guard Rapid. The liquid-applied membrane can be applied with a roller, trowel, brush, or airless sprayer to cover any surface shape. It cures to provide elongation that prevents in-plane surface cracks from transmitting through to the finished surface. SikaTile-100 Moisture Guard provides the same features and protective characteristics as the crack-isolation membrane while also waterproofing the installation. The membrane prevents continuous and aggressive water exposure from penetrating the tile system and causing property damage and installation failure. The membranes serve as crucial protective components of secure SikaTile systems.
