Jupiter Building. First National Prize for the Best Sika Work 2009
Rehabilitation of the building with the following procedure: Decapado with torch of the covering of granules silicios and rugoso of the vertical and horizontal paraments of the building Júpiter located in Fuengirola. Given the serious state of degradation of the plastering of the walls and floors of the building as a whole, the application of SIKA TOP 50 bonding resins, SIKA MONOTOP 610 for the treatment of the concrete rods and SIKA MONOTOP 612, 618 and 620 as repair mortars has been chosen.
Application of SIKAFLEX 11 FC in expansion joints and joints with aluminium closures and windows since the building contains a large number of these and by pickling the coating of silicon granules the joints between these closures and the walls are very deteriorated and exposed. Not to mention that many of these closures lack sealing between them and the walls.
Application of SIKA COLOR PLUS smooth coating as a primer to consolidate the support and provide a better adherence to it of the rough coating given its consistency and microns of thickness.
Application of SIKA FILLER 123 fibres on small micro fissures and shrinkage fissures of the initial mortar which can be seen when applying the primer coating and which could cause the reduction of the rough coating to be applied.
Final application of the SIKA COLOR PLUS rough coating in “chopped” texture with a 3-pore roller which gives the facing a greater thickness and better protection from external atmospheric agents, as well as a superior aesthetics of the building by concealing the flaws that cementitious mortar renderings have and which have been exposed with the removal of the previous coating of siliceous granules.
