MADISON HEIGHTS, Mich., Dec. 16, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Sika Corporation Industry Products Division is pleased to announce the addition of 400 ml unipacs to our broad range of polyurethane product packaging.  The introduction of 400 ml unipacs offers documented advantages to our customers including:

1.)  Cost Savings

2.)  Productivity  

3.)  Efficiency/Sustainability

Customers gain savings due to more cost effective packaging reflected on the bottom line, including nozzles and adapters enclosed in each carton and reduced shipping costs due to higher pallet packing densities.  As compared to 300 ml cartridges, customers will gain productivity advantages due to fewer change outs from the increased packaging yield, the actual use of urethane normally trapped in a conventional fixed nozzle cartridge while still maintaining the advantage of being able to dispense product in tight applications where a 600 ml unipac gun cannot fit.  Use of 400 ml unipacs will also contribute to Efficiency and Sustainability programs due to a greatly reduced waste stream; a pallet of used cartridges fills a dumpster while a pallet of used 400 ml unipacs fills only a garbage bag.

Multiple mainstream Sikaflex® products will be available in the new 400 ml unipac packaging configuration.  Sika Industry provides a wide range of high quality Transportation, Marine and AGR adhesives, primers and cleaners renowned for their ease of application, durability and performance characteristics.  The introduction of 400 ml unipacs continues the standard of innovation and consistency that has long made Sika an industry leader in the sealant and adhesives marketplace.
