Title: Watertight press fastener part

Abstract: A watertight press fastener part formed of an eyelet part (1 or 3) including an eyelet body (2 or 4) or of a ball part (5) including a ball body (6) and a cap rivet (7) which is fixable to a flat material (9), preferably in the form of a climate membrane, in a watertight manner by riveting. An elastically deformable sealing element (11 or 13) which is constructed as a molded part contacts the flat material (9). This sealing element is penetrated by the rivet shank (8) of the cap rivet (7) and has, in the assembled state, due to the deformation of the rivet shank, a press face which is formed in an analogous manner by deformation and which surrounds the axial opening (10) of the press fastener part. Together with a counter-face at the eyelet part or at the ball part, the press face defines the clamping area for the flat material (9).
