Sikalastic® 618

sikaSikalastic®-618 is a single component, cold-applied, moisture-triggered polyurethane membrane. It cures to form a seamless, durable and weather-resistant waterproofing solution for exposed roof areas.

The images show a flat roof repair carried out in our home town of Herne Bay. We installed the roof with a mechanically fixed perimeter clipping detail, designed by us, dressed onto the roof tiles.  Sika 618 is an excellent alternative to lead, and gives a good aesthetic appeal and allows for traditional detailing such as “woodcore roll”.
