Abstract

1. Cake-form cleansing means, in particular soap, which is able to float, consisting of a cleansing-means body (4) whose specific gravity is higher than 1, and of a plastics body (1) applied thereto, characterised in that the plastics body (1) consists of closed-pore plastics foam and by means of an adhesive substance (9) is applied with durable adhesion to the cleansing-means body (4).

Description

  • Die Erfindung betrifft eine Stückseife od. dgl. oder ein sonstiges stückförmiges Wasch- oder Reinigungsmittel und ein Verfahren zu deren Herstellung. The invention relates to a bar of soap od. The like., Or other piece shaped washing or cleaning agent and a method for their preparation.
  • Es ist seit langem bekannt, zB eine Stückseife mit der Dichte <1 dh eine Schwimmseife derart zu erhalten, daß in die Seifenmasse während der Herstellung Luftbläschen, Hohlkörper, Hohlräume, Körnchen, Einlagen, kosmetische oder körperpflegende Rohstoffe wie Badesalz oder körnige Fichtennadelextrakte, gehärtetes Hautöl, grobkörniger Seifengries , Schaumstoff aus Kunststoff, Holz, Kork oder dergleichen, sogar Tischtennisbälle, Plastikhüllen gefüllt mit Luft oder Gas oder aufgeblähtem Kunststoff eingebracht werden. It has long been known to obtain, for example, a bar of soap with a density of <1 ie a floating soap so that the soap composition during the production of air bubbles, hollow body cavities, granules, deposits, cosmetic or body care raw materials such as bath salts or granular pine needle extracts, hardened skin oil , coarse-grained soap Gries, foam, plastic, wood, cork or the like, even ping-pong balls, plastic bags filled are introduced with air or gas or swelled plastic.
  • Alle diese Verfahren und Möglichkeiten haben sich letztlich nicht wirklich durchgesetzt, weil die Seife oder andere Wasch- und Reinigungsmittel in Stückform beim Produktionsvorgang so zu präparieren, wegen des zusätzlichen Aufwands vor dem Hintergrund produlttionstechnischer Zwänge scheiterten. All these methods and possibilities have ultimately not really enforced because the soap or other detergents and cleaning products in piece form in the production process to prepare so, failed because of the extra effort in the context produlttionstechnischer constraints. Zudem kommt hinzu, daß diese Produkte von den Verwendern wegen dem objektiv nicht vorhandenen oder nur sehr gering gegebenen Zusatznutzen nicht angenommen worden. Also added that these products have not been adopted by the users because of the objectively non-existent or very low given added value comes. Keine dergleichen Ideen konnte bisher alle Vorteile auf sich vereinigen oder noch zusätzliche Vorteile bieten. No like has been able to unite all the advantages on themselves or even offer additional benefits ideas. Hier schafft die Erfindung Abhilfe. The invention provides a remedy.
  • Die Erfindung, wie sie in den Ansprüchen gekennzeichnet ist, löst die Aufgabe, indem ein wie in den Ansprüchen gekennzeichnetes Kunststoffplättchen aus geschäumtem Kunststoff, dessen Oberfläche geschlossenporig ist, bei der Produktion von stückförmigen Seifen, Wasch- oder Reinigungsmitteln an diese von außen durch Pressen, Druck oder mittels einer Haftmasse dauerhaft haftend verbunden wird. The invention, as characterized in the claims, achieves the object by a featured in claims plastic plate of foamed plastic whose surface is closed pores, in the production of tablet-form soaps, detergents or cleaning agents to these from the outside by pressing, pressure or is permanently connected adhesively by means of an adhesive compound.
  • Die Vorteile der Erfindung sind im wesentlichen darin zu sehen, daß bei mit diesem Kunststoffplättchen außenflächig versehene stückförmige Seifen, Wasch- oder Reinigungsmittel - je nach Volumen des Kunststoffplättchens - die Dichte des Gesamtstückes auf C.1 verändert wird. The advantages of the invention are to be seen essentially in the fact that at the outside surface provided with this plastic plate piece-like soaps, detergents or cleaners - depending on the volume of the plastic plate - the density of the entire piece is changed in C.1. Die Stükke schwimmen. The Stükke swim.
  • Die Unterseiten der Kunststoffplättchen sind feinkörnig ausgeprägt oder mit Rillen versehen. The lower surfaces of the plastic plates are provided with fine-grained or pronounced grooves. Durch Überreiben der Haut wird eine erhöhte Reinigungsintensität und als Nebenerscheinung eine Massagewirkung erzielt. increased cleaning intensity and as a byproduct of a massage effect is achieved by rubbing over the skin. Werden die so präparierten stückförmigen Seifen, Wasch- oder Reinigungsmittel nach dem Gebrauch abgelegt, ist eine Versumpfung derselben ausgeschlossen. If the so prepared piece shaped soaps, detergents or cleaners stored after use, a stagnation is excluded them.
  • Werden diese, im Nachfolgenden kurz "stückförmige Reinigungsmittel" genannten Stücke nach dem Gebrauch an jeder beliebigen - sogar an nassen, glatten, leicht abgeschrägten Flächen, zB Badewannen- oder Beckenrändern - auf der kunststoffbeschichteten Seite abgelegt, rutschen diese nicht selbständig weg. If these, as named hereafter referred to as "cleansing bar" after use anywhere - even on wet, smooth, slightly sloping surfaces, such as shower or pool edges - placed on the plastic-coated side, they do not slide independently away.
  • Die stückförmigen Reinigungsmittel werden bis auf einen sonst bei traditionellen Stückseifen nicht üblichen Rest verbraucht. The tablet-form detergents are up to a not otherwise comparable conventional bar soaps rest consumed. Die Griffigkeit und Handhabung der so präparierten Stücke werden wesentlich erhöht. The grip and handling of the thus prepared pieces are substantially increased. Bei dem Verfahren zur Beschichtung der stückförmigen Reinigungsmittel sind keine zusätzlichen Maschinen, Geräte oder Vorrichtungen notwendig. In the method for coating the tablet-form detergent no additional machinery, equipment or devices are necessary.
  • Die Plättchen werden in die zB Seifenform eingelegt und die Seifenmasse wird mittels Preßdruck aufgedrückt und dauerhaft verbunden. The slides are placed in the form, for example, soap and the soap mass is pressed by means of pressing pressure and permanently connected. Dabei werden die beschriebenen Kunststoffplättchen bis auf wenige Millimeter zusammengedrückt und federn nach dem Öffnen der Presse nach, so daß die Seifenstücke nicht in der Preßform kleben bleiben. The plastic plate to be described to a few millimeters compressed and springs after opening of the press, so that the soap bars can not stick in the mold.
  • Bei besonders komplizierten Seifenformen werden Seife und Kunststoffplättchen an ihrer Unter- bzw. Oberfläche mit einer Haftmasse beschichtet und danach zusammengepreßt und so dauerhaft haftend verbunden. For particularly complex soap molds soap and plastic plates are coated on their bottom or surface with an adhesive material and then pressed together and thus permanently adhered to.
  • Die außerordentliche dünne Beschichtung der stückförmigen Seifen, Wasch- oder Reinigungsstücke mit dem Kunststoffplättchen wird von den Verwendern nicht als unangenehm empfunden. The extraordinary thin coating of the tablet-form soaps, detergents or cleaning properties with the plastic plate is not perceived by users as being uncomfortable.
  • Im folgenden wird die Erfindung anhand von Ausführungsbeispielen zeichnerisch dargestellt und erläutert. In the following the invention is illustrated in the drawing by means of embodiments and explained.
