Sika`s mission is to convert the environmental compromise into a balance, where sustainability and durability are paramount and there is no need to sacrifice the quality or eco-friendliness.

To help the shipbuilding industry to reduce the CO2 emissions, Sika has developed an ultra-light weight floating floor solutions that will reduce the weight by an astonishing 24 kg/m2 compared to a traditional floating floor construction used in the shipbuilding industry. 

Different types of ships all have floating floors installed for acoustic comfort or as A-60 fire rated floor. Floating floors in larger areas are used onboard cruise ships, expedition ships, RoRo car ferries, passenger ferries and research vessels, which are just some of the ships where floating floors are used and where the new Sikafloor® Marine Ultra Lightweight floating floor can be used. By reducing the weight of the ship construction, we can help to minimize the fuel consumption and reduce the emission of CO2!
