Included amongst Precon's mainline portfolio of Sika products is Sikaflex Construction. It is a one component, permanently elastic joint sealant compound based on polyurethane. It is suitable for general construction facade joint sealing. It is has utility across a number of joint types including for concrete and masonry, as well as door, window, pre-cast concrete cladding panel joints, and joints in reinforced concrete walls.

Once cured Sikaflex Construction can be over-painted with most conventional facade coating paint systems.
