The AEROSANA VISCONN system: Vapour retarder and airtightness seal that can be simply sprayed on

Everything can be sealed more quickly

Awkward detail features that are difficult to access, penetrations and transitions between components with lots of corners and edges are frequently encountered on building sites. With these challenges, creating airtightness seals can be a time-consuming task.

Airtightness sealing with the AEROSANA VISCONN system – a real all-rounder: whether you are sealing a large surface area or a complicated joint detail – AEROSANA VISCONN ensures permanent airtightness everywhere!

The sprayable AEROSANA VISCONN airtightness sealant offers installation technicians an alternative that they can use to seal complicated construction details just as quickly and easily as large surfaces. The AEROSANA VISCONN system is so versatile in practice that a majority of airtightness challenges that arise can be reliably solved using this product. The spray film is water-based and has achieved excellent values in hazardous substance testing.

Numerous possible interior and exterior applications

AEROSANA VISCONN is suitable for all surfaces typically found in construction, such as plastered or non-plastered masonry, porous panel-form materials or membranes. It can also be used as a bonding primer on rough or dusty subsurfaces and covers cracks and joints of up to 3 mm width. Joints of up to 20 mm width can be painted over using fibre-reinforced AEROSANA VISCONN FIBRE, an additional product in the system. To create airtight seals for bigger holes such as when sealing penetrations of pipes or ties, a piece of AEROSANA FLEECE can be used that is put in place before being painted or sprayed over.

BAU 2019: At Stand 200 in Hall B6, the focus is on healthier buildings

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.

Always on hand and easy to use: TESCON SPRIMER – the new spray-on primer from pro clima

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

A new type of airtightness seal: spray-on or brush-on liquid film from pro clima

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

pro clima presents a new super adhesive for building envelopes: ORCON MULTIBOND

pro clima presents a new super adhesive for building envelopes – Even at temperatures below zero degrees Celsius: The ORCON MULTIBOND joint adhesive provides extremely high adhesive strength immediately

The new joint adhesive from a roll for interior and exterior use: ORCON MULTIBOND

It sticks immediately to mineral subsurfaces, and even temperatures below zero Celsius on the building site are no problem: the new ORCON MULTIBOND joint adhesive supports installation technicians in implementing joints quickly, cleanly and reliably to achieve a sealed building envelope. This adhesive tape, which is applied from a roll, features pro clima’s patented SOLID adhesive technology. Continue reading
