Ever wondered who provided the flooring and waterproofing solution for the $200 million upgrade to the Sydney Cricket Ground? No? Me either. But just in case you were wondering, it was Sika. You may not have heard of Sika but if you consider yourself a bit of a handy man or woman, it is highly likely you have used their products at some time. Next time you are at Bunnings, take a stroll down the sealants and adhesives isle and you will come across a lot of Sika products with their distinctive yellow and red packaging. Sometimes it is the really boring companies that provide the best opportunities.
