Sika Concern Opened in Russia its First Polycarboxylate Esters Production Facility


Sika Concern opened in the city of Lobnya (Moscow Region) its first Polycarboxylate Esters Production Facility in Russia.


New plant in Lobnya will produce key feedstock for plasticizing concrete additives - polycarboxylate esters. Plant capacity – 12 thousand tons of polycarboxylate esters a year That is assumed to be enough to produce over 50 thousand tons of concrete additives. Planned annual receipts under the facility’s peak load will reach RUR 1.5 billion.


Total investments in plant development and construction made up RUR 200 million. Production of polycarboxylates at the new plant will considerably reduce critical dependence of the country on raw materials import in such market segments as production of concrete additives and cement grinding aids.


Sika was founded in 1910 in Switzerland. Nowadays it operates at the markets of Middle East, Africa, Eastern Europe, South-East Asia, in the Pacific Region and in North America. In Russia Sika has been operating since 2003: here the company owes three concrete additives production plants and one dry pack mortar production plant, it also holds five representative offices in various regions of the country.
