Whilst digging the Gotthard Tunnel in Switzerland in the early 1900's, Kasper Vinkler invented a product to protect and clean granite that also waterproofed mortar he called this liquid additive Sika 1. Kasper went on to form his company in 1911, which he started with the help of a chemist to formulate his products. Business was tough for many years especially during the first World War. In 1918, a breakthrough came from the Swiss Federal Railway and after trials of the Sika 1 they waterproofed 67 tunnels through the Alps. By 1921, a small manufacturing plant was established. By 1928, subsidiaries were established in Italy, France and England.
