Studies confirm the long service life of this joint adhesive
pro clima ORCON F is a strong joint adhesive that has now been shown to have a durability of at least 100 years: this has been verified by independent testing by the University of Kassel. This joint adhesive is ideal for sticking vapour retarders, underlay membranes and wall-lining membranes to create airtight and/or windtight bonds.
As part of the “Quality assurance of bond based connection technologies for airtightness layers” project at the University of Kassel, a process has been developed that subjects adhesive joints to artificial ageing for 120 days by applying extreme climate conditions. After this period, the bonds have to fulfil certain minimum strength requirements.
It can be used on the interior or exterior, transports undesirable moisture out of window joints and is full-surface adhesive. The new joint adhesive tape from pro clima – CONTEGA SOLIDO IQ – will make the installation of windows easier and will provide protection against damage to structures. When installed on the inside, it is vapour-retarding and airtight; when used on the outside, it is resistant to driving rain, open to diffusion and windtight.
European Technical Assessment confirms high durability even under demanding conditions, as well as compatibility with DIN 68000-2
Long-term durability, even subject to extreme heat or cold: pro clima’s INTELLO and INTELLO PLUS airtight membranes are humidity-variable and very resilient. This has now been confirmed by independent technical testing by the German Institute for Construction Technology (DIBt).
“Our humidity-variable INTELLO and INTELLO PLUS vapour retarders, together with our DB+ product, were the first humidity-variable vapour retarders to receive national technical approval from the German Institute for Construction Technology (DIBt). These products have now been awarded approval in the European Technical Assessment (ETA). As a result, they now also have the required proof of durability demanded by DIN 68000-2 for vapour retarders with humidity-variable diffusion resistance,”

Advantages of humidity-variable vapour retarders: Maximum reliability for built structures
The INTELLO and AEROSANA VISCONN airtightness systems are Passive House certified
Particularly energy-efficient, permanent adhesion and reliable performance – these are the requirements that pro clima demands of its construction materials. After all, good buildings that provide healthy indoor environments can only be achieved if the quality level of the construction components is right. pro clima has this quality level checked at regular intervals by independent external bodies.
New: the AEROSANA VISCONN sprayable sealant is Passive House certified
The Passive House Institute has now confirmed that the new humidity-variable AEROSANA VISCONN airtightness sealant also fulfils its strict criteria and achieves the highest efficiency class of phA. This spray-on or brush-on airtightness sealant is proving very popular among installation technicians as its saves time and can be used flexibly. Thanks to its humidity-variable sd value, it can be used both indoors and outdoors. It can cover cracks and joints of up to 3 mm in width. If the system fleece is also used, then larger joints can also be dealt with. Once it has dried, AEROSANA VISCONN is permanently elastic and very resilient. It can also be plastered over without any problems.
Planners and architects are including the new AEROSANA VISCONN in their construction projects because they know that spraying or painting on provides reliable sealing for challenging detailed features. In addition, the humidity-variable diffusion resistance also provides better protection for building components. Installation technicians appreciate the ease of installation and the time savings compared to working with adhesive tapes. In this way, a seamless, sealed airtightness layer can be achieved for walls, ceilings and floors in a time-saving manner.
With INTELLO, winter building sites are not a problem
With a hydrosafe value of over 2 m, INTELLO protects insulation structures reliably – even if there is a lot of building moisture present due to plastering and the installation of screed, for example. In addition, pro clima INTELLO is the first humidity-variable vapour retarder with European technical approval. There are a number of humidity-variable vapour retarders – Michael Förster (the head of Application Technology at pro clima) explains the differences between them in this video:
pro clima presents projects, products and a guiding principle
How does the selection of construction materials and the professional handling of these materials influence the construction of healthy buildings to live in? This is just one of the questions that MOLL pro clima is considering at BAU 2019. The overall issue of healthier buildings is the focus of the trade fair presence of pro clima, the specialist in windtightness and airtightness. At the heart of Stand 200 in Hall B6, we will be presenting our joint projects with the Sentinel Haus Institut – such as the current research project “My Future Office”, which deals with sustainable, healthier office buildings. However, a significant amount of space is also dedicated to both new and tried-and-tested products that pro clima has developed with the issue of healthy living environments very much in the foreground.
Finding out more, discussing technical issues, experiencing new products at BAU 2019: At the pro clima Stand 200 in Hall B6, everything will be focused on windtight and airtight building envelopes and their importance for achieving healthier buildings.
Dried-out products in paint cans and the time-consuming cleaning of brushes are no longer a problem with the new TESCON SPRIMER.
There will generally be dust present anywhere that bonding primer is being applied. Primer liquids and brushes can easily become dirty. TESCON SPRIMER now provides a solution to these problems: this innovative primer is applied directly from a spray can, which means that it stays clean – and you don’t to worry about accidentally knocking over cans of primer or having them dry out either! This spray-on primer is ready to use in an instant, can be applied at precisely the right location thanks to the adjustable nozzle, and has the same application properties that you are familiar with from other pro clima bonding primers.
Application also possible at temperatures below zero Celsius
Simply shake the can forcefully a few times and you’re ready to start applying TESCON SPRIMER, even during frosty conditions. The bonding primer penetrates deep into the application surface and strengthens dusty subsurfaces or subsurfaces with insufficient load-bearing capacity. It is permitted for wood fibre underlay panels and other similarly absorbent subsurfaces to be still somewhat moist when the primer is sprayed on. Work can also be continued on these surfaces – for example, the TESCON VANA all-round adhesive tape or the adhesive sealing tapes for plaster in the CONTEGA family of products can be applied without any waiting time being necessary. However, TESCON SPRIMER must dry fully for it to achieve its final level of strength.
TESCON SPRIMER can be sprayed on at precisely the location where a reliable adhesive bond is to be created.
Focus on health issues
Installation technicians have often enquired to pro clima about a primer that could be applied from a spray can, reports Michael Förster, an Application Technology specialist at this Schwetzingen-based airtightness and windtightness specialist company: “It took a while to create a product to meet this need, as we wanted our new primer to be a lot better in terms of environmental friendliness and occupational health and safety than the spray-on primers that are already available on the market.”
“The advantage of spray-on primers is that they are significantly easier to work with than similar products in bottles. After all, you don’t need a brush and you can apply the product precisely where you need it by spraying it on. No lumps form in the primer either. I am delighted that pro clima is now able to offer TESCON SPRIMER – as I know that a lot of attention has been paid to sustainability and that the propellant is not harmful to my health or the health of my colleagues,” says the master carpenter and construction engineer Alexander Erny from Mannheim. He is also impressed by the ease of use of TESCON SPRIMER. The spray can is handy to carry around and is always on hand when he needs it.
TESCON SPRIMER is available from dealers in cans with volumes of 400 and 750 millilitres. Other new products from pro clima can be found at www.proclima.de
This innovative product impresses with its wide range of possible applications
Spraying instead of sticking: AEROSANA VISCON can be used to create a new type of vapour retarder and airtightness seal.
Who says that airtightness films always have to come as sheeting in roll form? With AEROSANA VISCON, there is now a liquid vapour retarder and airtightness layer than can be sprayed directly onto surfaces to be sealed. When it dries out, the acrylic dispersion turns into a durable, seamless elastic protective layer. Suitable subsurfaces include non-plastered masonry, porous panel-form materials and membranes too. With its humidity-variable sd value, AEROSANA VISCON is suitable for interior air sealing and also for protected outdoor areas. The spray film is water-based and has achieved excellent values in the hazardous substance test. Continue reading →
