High strength bond for store's stunning façade

High strength bond for store's stunning façade

Sikasil SG-500, a high strength, fast-curing silicone adhesive from global building product manufacturer Sika, is helping ensure the safe, long-term installation of nearly 200 windows which will form a new superstore’s spectacular, structurally-glazed façade.

The ideal adhesive for structural glazing, Sikasil SG-500 was specified by sub-contractors Lindner Facades for a new £54 million John Lewis store in Leeds city centre. The store is designed by ACME architects, with its construction being overseen by main contractors, Sir Robert McAlpine.

Sikasil SG-500 is being used to bond 192 windows – a mix of 1m x 2m and 5m x 3m windows – to diamond-shaped steel frames which form the 25,000m2 building’s five-storey, three-dimensional façade, described by specialist retail developers Hammerson as a “future classic for architecture in Leeds”. Jared Laslett, Division Manager for Lindner Facades, said: “Sikasil SG-500 is the silicone adhesive we trust. We’ve used it on many previous projects, providing exactly what it promised – superb, rapid-curing adhesion.”

Sikasil SG-500 is a two-part, high-modulus, neutral-curing structural silicone adhesive. As well as window applications, Sikasil can be used for solar modules and challenging industrial applications. It provides excellent adhesion to a wide range of substrates.
