Sika has launched a high powered promotion for its long-established range of PEF Rods, with the prize being an aerobatic warbird experience in a genuine Curtiss P-40 Kittyhawk — an historic fighting aircraft of World War II.
Sika PEF rods are the white foam lengths placed in joints before a sealant is used. Rather than pump the joint full of sealant, a builder installs a PEF rod to control the depth of the joint so less sealant is needed.
The other advantage is that because the sealant won’t stick to the PEF rod, a two-sided seal is created — important because a seal can easily split if it is attached to three or more sides and then stretched.
Sika PEF rods won’t absorb water which can be a big advantage when sealing external joints.
Sika distribution business manager Tony Smith says entries in the Warbirds promotion are already taking off.
“This aircraft is one of only 12 still in use in the world. It has a top speed of 579 km/h, so the winner is in for an amazing ride,” Mr Smith says.
The Curtiss P-40 was built as a World War II ground attack aircraft. It was renowned for its low level performance, rugged construction and six 50-calibre machine guns.
To enter the promotion, simply purchase any specially marked box or reel of Sika PEF Backing Rod before December 1, 2014.
