A Winning Formula
In the roofing industry, claims of “new and improved” should certainly be cause for concern. Performance over time is the only true test of a roofing or waterproofing system’s quality. Sika Sarnafil’s successful membrane formulation has been time tested for more than 45 years.
Ever since full scale production of our thermoplastic membranes began in 1964, Sika Sarnafil has used the same basic formulation in its manufacturing processes. We developed a winning formula and have stood by it for four decades. Today, building owners are assured their Sika Sarnafil roof or waterproofing system will provide the same durability and reliability as it did years ago.
Sika Sarnafil’s winning membrane formulation and quality installation result in a roof or waterproofing system that is:
|Attractive||Seven standard colors as well as the ability to create custom colors to match your design needs|
|Cost Effective||Low life cycle costs, including reduced expenses for energy and maintenance|
|Energy Efficient||Our reflective EnergySmart Roof cool colors are ENERGY STAR approved and proven to save thousands in cooling costs|
|Fire Resistant||Does not contribute to the spread of the flames because of its inherent self-extinguishing properties|
|Reliable||Engineered to withstand extreme environmental exposure throughout a long-lasting service life|
|Versatile||Logos, colors, metal appearance and accessories make Sika Sarnafil able to meet any design challenge|
|Proven||Time tested, independently rated. Close to 15 billion square feet of Sika Sarnafil membrane protect buildings around the world|
Independent Testing Confirms It: Our membrane formulation has been repeatedly confirmed through independent testing as the best in the industry. For example, a 1999 study by the consulting engineers at Simpson Gumpertz and Heger Inc. compared the physical properties and performance capabilities of most commercially available thermoplastic roofing membranes. Sarnafil G and S membranes were the top two rated products out of the 15 they tested.
The author concludes by saying, “The only rational procedure for selecting a roofing system is its past performance on the roof in the same climate as the new project.” Sika Sarnafil would be happy to provide you with a list of projects similar to yours and in your area.
Sika Sarnafil membranes have been proven to work around the world on facilities as diverse as high-rises, museums, retail stores, sports arenas and schools – in every conceivable climate.
