Concrete Experience

Concrete stands for durability. And Sika has contributed to that standing significantly in the course of its history. If there is a need for concrete with special characteristics, Sika products are there. As the true specialists in this field we opened our doors to labs, production and construction sites for the participant of the Concrete Experience and showed where sustainability meets hard facts!

Nader: "All I can say about this experience that it is simply AWSOMEEEEEEEEE !!! I’ve done things in these four days that I could never have done it in my whole life.
It’s really a LIFETIME EXPERIENCE [...] I learned a lot about concrete manufacturing [...] and tomorrow is the big day where we will produce our own concrete, also there was many jobsites and factories visits and they were all really great, the technology here is very advanced in every thing..."

Fernando: "We visited a jobsite in Delemont, Choindez Tunnel, it was incredible to be next to such huge equipments and see, for real, the applications of the different techniques. [...] There, we visited the two fronts of attack in the tunnel and the construction of the Ventilation’s Cave. It was just unbelievable! After that, we could see where and how the admixtures are fabricated in Kirchberg, the whole logistics impressed me quite a lot. "

Joao: "On Thursday we went to Hagerbach, in Sargans where the Sika Test Facilities is located. We went with Markus, who explained all about the facilities and about shotcrete. We were even able to use a shotcrete machine. It was amazing and really great to learn about it, and was something for sure I never did before."
