Sika Sarnafil History

In 1958, a company called Sarna was formed in Switzerland to develop polymeric products, and in 1962 this small company did something very big. Company chemists developed the first thermoplastic membrane reinforced with fabric, leading to a number of industrial applications and an ever growing roofing membrane market.

This tear-resistant thermoplastic membrane was patented and trademarked “Sarnafil”. The discovery would revolutionise the flat roofing industry.

Since the 1960’s the performance and longevity of Sika Sarnafil roofs has been demonstrated in millions of successful applications worldwide, in every conceivable climate, and many of the early installations are still providing reliable protection today.

Some of Britain’s best known buildings feature Sika Sarnafil roofs, and it is the system of choice for applications in education, hospitals and healthcare, commerce & retail, leisure, travel, and many other sectors.
