Sika is a world leader in the development, manufacture and marketing of a complete range of acoustic adhesives, sealants and flooring for the shipbuilding industry. Recognized as experts by the world of yachting, shipyards and boat owners call on Sika or Sikaflex® when they are looking for an efficient product for the construction, repair or maintenance of their boats.
In the early 1980’s Sika discovered the teak caulking application as a potential market. By then, the application was executed with a two component polysulfide material. The product and application showed issues during the mixing procedure as air was included by applying the product and whereby later bubbles became visible.
The one-component Sikaflex®, elastic polyurethane, made the process easier, faster and cleaner. Nowadays, Sikaflex® is the global reference for teak deck caulking.
