  • When KONE was deciding on the right floor for their facility where they build elevator control panels, Sikafloor ESD was an easy choice. It offers static control which is very important because it helps prevent equipment malfunction or sparks that could cause fire. But Sika Technical Services also offered free annual testing of the floor for five years, to certify that the floor is ESD active. #SikaFloor #esdfloors
  • Happy weekend! Did you know that Sika has a wide range of residential products? They are the perfect match for your weekend DIY projects #diyprojects #sikaproselect #sikaeveryday
  • To achieve floors that met Crayola's color expectations required thinking "outside the box." There was an enormous amount of detail in the coloring and layout of the floor, which included abstract shapes and swirls. @ardorsolutions with the help of their Sikafloor rep worked together to match all the custom PMS colors to the vivid crayons found in the Crayola box. #throwback #crayolaexperience #SikaFloor #customcolormatch #floordesign
