General instructions for Seal pad EVO

  • application always acc. DoP No. CPR-14/0275-sealpad
  • standard application: 1 Seal pad EVO per socket box (module) on either side
    – peel off protective foil and apply Seal pad EVO firmly IN the box at the back end
    – with renovation: push wires aside; the EVO is enough flexible / bendable to apply without de-installing wiring at the back end of the box !
