A liquid-applied material for Type A (barrier) construction, Sikalastic® 8800 is a rapid-curing polyurea membrane that provides very high concrete protection.

Sikalastic® 8800 is a BBA-Certificated product suitable for below-ground waterproofing and podium decks. It is a spray-applied liquid waterproofing system developed by Sika. Based on polyurea chemistry, Sikalastic® 8800 is engineered specifically for commercial and residential structural roofs and decks. Its fast curing system creates a durable, fully bonded and seamless waterproofing membrane that is easier and more efficient to apply than conventional methods.

Why use Sikalastic® 8800?

Sikalastic® 8800 boasts coating, lining and joint-sealant technology and is a highly elastic, flexible and hard-wearing polymeric system that is commonly applied over concrete to deliver corrosion protection and abrasion resistance, as well as leading waterproofing technology.

Providing waterproofing to areas where concrete alone is a high risk, especially when it is susceptible to flexural cracks and hard to repair or access areas, Sikalastic® 8800 has very high concrete protection. It also provides resistance against seepage/percolating water.
