Global building products manufacturer Sika has been shortlisted for a Concrete Repair Association (CRA) award for its innovative concrete repair range which sets a new standard for low environmental impact.

The new products launched as part of the MonoTop® range consist of the following: - Sika MonoTop®-1010, Sika MonoTop®-3020, MonoTop®-4012, which generates less CO2emissions compared to other concrete repair solutions – up to 1 tonne ofCO2 per 100m2 – earned its CRA nomination in the ‘Innovation’ category. 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.

John Baron, Specialist Construction Solutions Business Unit Manager at Sika, said: “The MonoTop®range highlights Sika’s commitment to developing products which achieve new levels of sustainability without compromising the company’s primary function as a trusted repair resource. The CRA nomination, of which we’re extremely proud, is in recognition of this ability. MonoTop®’’s production is a testament to the technical ingenuity of our superb research and development teams.”

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.
