When a windshield gets replaced, a critical component to the safety of the occupant's well-being and the vehicle's integrity are getting touched. These days, the windscreen is structurally bonded to the vehicle body, increasing cabin stiffness and crash safety. The use of the wrong products and shoddy workmanship has resulted in fatal accidents; reducing them to zero is a crucial ambition for Sika as the world-leading brand for auto glass adhesives..
Keep you Safely inside the car
Windshield and adhesive prevent you from ejection

At Sika, we take safety seriously and continuously work on better and even more reliable solutions. This has been one of the driving forces making Sika the leading brand for windshield adhesives globally.
Stiff as New – Only with SikaTack® ELITE
Today, cars can be driven just 30 minutes after the installation of a new glass. Auto Glass Adhesives typically meet the FMVSS 212 crash test standard, which defines the vehicle's minimal requirements to be safe to be driven. However, regular single component adhesives may need up to 7 days until they reach the original vehicle conditions. During this time, the torsional stiffness of the vehicle is compromised.
SikaTack® ELITE for PowerCure is different!
Sika's PowerCure technology allows reaching the performance required by car manufacturers within minutes; it basically allows a short waiting time without compromising safety and quality. At Sika, we call reaching this performance "Cured to OEM Level".
