The cars the star

Centrepiece of Sikas major stand at Civils 98 will be a Jordan Formula One racing car. Light boxes on each side of the stand will focusing on four of the specific technical areas in which it offers solutions. They are:

Corrosion inhibitors, both penetrating and admixtures

Strengthening using bonded carbon fibre composites

Designer concretes

Elastic, resilient rail fixings.

The Jordan, apart from showing off Sikas sponsorship of the team, has a very practical link in its extensive use of carbon fibre. The 1997 model on the stand will be pretty close to the cutting edge of carbon fibre technology. This years cars will not be available during Civils 98 since they have a prior engagement the Monaco GP.

Other links between the company and F1 include epoxy flooring in the Silverstone pits garages, last year for the Arrows team and this year for Jordan.

The inside story on carbon fibre and plate bonding for strengthening of structures will be presented on 20 May at Sikas Civils 98 seminar.

Resilient rail track applications will also be demonstated on the stand.
