Demand for energy efficient doors which are attractive and low maintenance is increasing. Some key reasons for this are:
- energy efficiency and comfort demands from consumers increase
- scarce natural wood resources and
- a trend towards increased thermal and noise insulation
As a result, the use of composite doors has grown to a point where this technology is now considered by many as the market standard.
By using adhesives it is possible to combine, in a composite door, the external aesthetics of for instance a wood laminate or the low maintenance properties of for instance uPVC, with the internal structural properties of for instance a wooden frame or paper honeycomb core or the thermal and noise insulation of a foam core.
Within its product range Sika has solutions covering all these applications for bonding, sealing, damping and reinforcing within the door panel manufacturing sector.
