Sika Lunch & Learn Programs

NW Lunch & Learn Programs

Sika’s NW team of technical consultants are available to assist architects, engineers, and contractors in meeting the needs of today’s demanding building environments with Sika’s globally proven solutions.

Sika offers educational seminars (both AIA and Sika specific) to ensure your staff is always up to date regarding the most viable solutions.
Whether the need is project specific or if your firm is interested in scheduling a recurring session throughout the year, we welcome the opportunity to meet and inform.
Please review the list of presentations below and contact info@atlassupply.com to schedule date and time.

Joint Sealants – Their Design and Use (SIK400) Joint sealants seal penetrations between construction elements…a critical part of the building envelope.  They prevent ingress of water/moisture into the building interior or through joints/gaps.  They also play a role in the prevention of reinforced concrete corrosion, which can lead to structural failures. *Various sealant types and uses *Proper joint design and sealant selection criteria *Critical success factors and field installation techniques
Liquid Applied Roofing and Waterproofing Membranes (SIK501) Liquid applied membranes should not be confused with coatings.  The effectiveness and versatility of fluid-applied membranes often make them the only viable solution for complex waterproofing problems.  This seminar will focus on the use of such systems as an alternative to conventional roof systems and a solution to challenging waterproofing problems.   The use of these systems in historic preservation, façade repair, and building envelope waterproofing will also be examined.  *Gain an overall awareness of the various fluid applied roofing & waterproofing membranes. *Examine the basic differences between fluid-applied membranes and coatings. *Review field installation considerations.
Repair and Protection of Parking Structures (SIK604) Very few structures are subjected to the extreme traffic demands and continuous exposure to the elements like parking structures.  Attendees will examine the following topics: Parking structure common repair means and methods, Sealant selection and joint design for high traffic areas. Traffic deck coatings – types, design considerations, and installation techniques.
Repair and Protection of Concrete (SIK602) Many years of research and development plus decades of practical experience has enabled Sika to provide systems to restore concrete and masonry structures that have deteriorated due to corrosion, structural damage, water infiltration, seismic activity, reactive aggregates and other means.  Learn why concrete fails and means and methods to diagnose problems.   Explore installation techniques and repair material options + review protection techniques including corrosion inhibitors and crack repair options.

Total Corrosion Management (SIK600) This seminar examines the various root causes of corrosion in concrete and steel frame construction.  Significant emphasis is placed on thorough inspection techniques and design considerations with regard to corrosion repair, control, and management.  Seminar topics include: *Failure mechanisms for steel frame building facades *Strategies to repair and protect steel frame structures to prevent further facade failures. *Review corrosion monitoring means and methods.
Structural Strengthening with FRP Composites (SIK301) Fiber reinforced polymers (FRP) are a proven technology for upgrading and strengthening concrete, masonry, timber and steel structures.  These advanced composite materials have exceptionally high strength, yet are very lightweight and easy to install. They are used for increasing the capacity of existing buildings, seismically upgrading bridges, correcting construction errors and allowing changes in use.   *Why structures need strengthening *Composites strengthening vs. steel *Typical field installation methods
Epoxies in Construction (SIK 607) This program examines the variety of uses for epoxies in modern construction.  Typical applications include bonding agents, floor finishes, protective coatings, adhesive anchoring, crack sealing and structural repair materials.  Seminar goals are: *Establish a general understanding of the types and uses of construction epoxies. *Understand the basic installation techniques and testing methods for epoxy repairs. *Discuss epoxy use for crack repairs, overlays, coatings, and anchoring.
