Pressing aid for pro clima adhesive tapes
Cable grommets for subsequent installation
- Easily create secure seals around cables that are already in place
- Extremely flexible and elastic
- Quick and easy installation
- Waterproof, also suitable for penetrations in façades and roof linings
- Airtight bonds according to DIN 4108-7, SIA 180 and OENORM B 8110-2
- Excellent values in the hazardous substance test, has been tested according to the ISO 16000 evaluation scheme
The sealing grommets, pro clima KAFLEX post, are used for the quick and long-term, secure airtight installation of pre-installed cables in accordance with DIN 4108-7. As a result of the waterproof adhesive and carrier materials, KAFLEX post is also suitable for outdoor use (e.g. windproofing in the roof lining and façade).

Forms of delivery
The bonds should not be subjected to tensile strain.
Press firmly to secure the adhesive tapes in place. Ensure that there is sufficient resistance pressure.
Windproof, airtight or rainproof bonding can only be achieved on vapour retarders or underlay/sarking/facade membranes that have been laid without folds or creases.
Ventilate continuously and systematically to prevent build-up of excessive humidity; use a dryer if necessary.
Before adhesion is carried out, subsurfaces should be brushed off, wiped clean with a cloth or cleaned using compressed air.
Adhesion to frozen surfaces is not possible. There must be no water-repellent substances (e.g. grease or silicone) on materials to be bonded. Subsurfaces must be sufficiently dry and stable.
Install the cables without strain, fix cables with a cable clip as required.
A permanent bond is achieved on all pro clima indoor and outdoor membranes, other vapour retarder and airtightness membranes (e.g. PE, PA, PP and aluminium foil) as well as roof and wall lining membranes (e.g. PP and PET).
Bonding and joints are possible on planed and painted wood, hard plastics and metal (e.g. pipes, windows etc.), hard wood-based panels (chipboard, OSB, plywood, MDF and wood fibre underlay panels).
Pretreatment with TESCON PRIMER is required in the case of adhesion to wood-fibre underlay panels and smooth mineral subsurfaces. Concrete or plaster subsurfaces must not be sandy or crumbling.
The best results in terms of structural stability are achieved on high-quality subsurfaces.
It is your responsibility to check the suitability of the subsurface; adhesion tests are recommended in certain cases.
Pretreatment with TESCON PRIMER is recommended in the case of subsurfaces with insufficient stability.
