Sika - Building Trust

More than just Distribution!

Boise, ID – We had the opportunity to stop at Atlas Supply’s new branch in Boise, Idaho. This Atlas location has a large showroom with a Sika display, demonstrating the advantages of Sika products. Atlas not only supplies sealants and coatings for various concrete projects, but also provides on-site assistance to their customers. Harry Dudunake will work with customers to find the products that best match their needs. We were able to accompany Harry on one of these visits.

What a great display!

Harry and Brian from Atlas took us to an apartment complex to review a parking deck refurbishment project by the Ralph L. Wadsworth Construction Co. The deck has two levels of parking for the residents of the 11-story building. Over time, the rebar in this deck has expanded and damaged the surrounding concrete. Josh Oviatt from Wadsworth Contractors explained to us the general strategy for this project. First, the rebar will be sandblasted and covered in a protective epoxy coating. Since this rebar upholds the top level of the parking deck, it is very important that it remains structurally sufficient. Harry and Josh discussed the advantages to using SikaQuick VOH to repair the concrete, as it can easily be applied overhead without compromising on strength. Once the concrete in the deck has been repaired with SikaQuick, Sikalastic 715 will be applied on the parking deck’s surface. This will prevent water from entering the concrete, which can cause additional rebar problems going forward. The final result will be a strong, waterproof parking deck.

Support poles are set up throughout the repair process.

Atlas Supply in Boise is involved in several other projects that utilize Sika products. In the beginning of July, Atlas Supply provided 429,000 pounds of SikaGrout 212 for a Micron Semiconductor Plant. That’s a lot of grout. Currently, Atlas is supplying Sikaflex-2c NS for a new slaughterhouse outside of Boise to seal the precast joints. One thing is clear, Harry and Brian are wasting no time introducing Sika products to nearby projects.
