Sika (NZ) Ltd will be introducing a new range of Sika Sarnafil roofing systems into New Zealand in the coming year.
Sika Sarnafil is a sheet membrane waterproofing solution that can be tailored to suit the design and appearance requirements of new and existing roofs that are being renovated.
In New Zealand since 1959, Sika’s products have been tried and tested in local conditions in two of the most prominent landmarks in the country — Wellington’s Te Papa Museum and Auckland’s Sky City Casino complex.
According to a company spokesperson, projects such as these two that require a very long design life called for a wide range of Sika’s durable concrete admixtures, sealants, epoxies, grouts and flooring systems.
“And the international reputation and proven performance of Sika products world wide give our customers the reassurance to use them at local level,” the spokesperson says.
Established in 1910 in Zurich by the Swiss inventor Caspar Winkler, the company has been in New Zealand since 1959. Sika (NZ) Ltd attained ISO 9002 accreditation in 1994 and is a Telarc ISO 9002 registered supplier.
The spokesperson says the emphasis for Sika is on providing integrated system solutions to meet every requirement.
“This internationally recognised certification is independent proof of our commitment to providing products and services of a consistently high quality.”
The company is a member of the New Zealand Chemical Industry Council and committed to the environment and to environmental safety, in particular the industry’s Responsible Care Management Programme.
Sika carries out a periodic and systematic risk-hazard analysis in all its production facilities, and implements appropriate measures where necessary to ensure any risks to staff or the environment are minimised.
