Russ Livermore, VP Marketing for Sika Industry, says:

"The smaller, ready-to-use 70 ml pack is small and lightweight, making it an easy choice to toss in your toolbox or gear bag. And, short of a knife to snip open the package, you don't need additional tools to use it. The 70 ml quantity is perfect for small repair jobs, without the expense or waste associated with larger packages."

"We set out to develop the most convenient repair product a boat owner can use. We're proud of this innovative new way to package the popular Sikaflex 291i, and excited to make it more easily available to boat-owners nationwide, through broader distribution."
