SIKA SUSTAINABLE CONCRETE REPAIR RANGE WINS INNOVATION PRIZE AT CONCRETE REPAIR ASSOCIATION (CRA) AWARDS
Global building products manufacturer Sika was among the winners at this year’s Concrete Repair Association (CRA) awards.
Judges voted the company’s new MonoTop® concrete repair range which sets a new standard for low environmental impact, winner of the contest’s ‘Innovation’ category. The announcement was made at a finals evening held on Friday, December 3rd at the Radisson Blu Edwardian Bloomsbury Street Hotel in London.
Speaking of the award, John Baron, Specialist Construction Solutions, Business Unit Manager at Sika, said: “This is a magnificent achievement. MonoTop® achieves new levels of sustainability without compromise to its long-term repair performance. Congratulations to everyone involved in the development of this superb product range. The award is a true testament to Sika’s continued drive to innovate solutions which are good for our buildings and limit environmental impact.”
Sika MonoTop®-1010, Sika MonoTop®-3020 and Sika MonoTop®-4012 make up the recently-launched MonoTop® range, which generates less CO2 emissions compared to other concrete repair solutions – up to 1 tonne of CO2 per 100m2. Ideal for new-build and refurbishment projects, MonoTop® rewrites the rule book in terms of low-carbon concrete repair. Its sustainability is enhanced by its dust-reducing properties which limit particle emissions by up to 70% during application, resulting in safer, less-polluted, more comfortable on-site working conditions for operatives.
MonoTop®’s environmentally-friendly credentials are essential to achieving BREEAM/LEED requirements. Indeed, each British Standard-approved product within the system, including the bonding binder and the concrete and levelling mortars, contains recycled waste materials.
John added: “We are incredibly proud of the sustainable performance we’ve been able to achieve with our MonoTop® range. Its credentials have been further confirmed with the Concrete Repair Association (CRA) award. We thank the organisers and the judges involved in this respected industry event.”
