The object of the invention is to provide an improved applicator deployment.

This object is solved by the features of claim 1.

Advantageous developments are indicated by the dependent claims. The basic idea of ​​the invention is the use of a device for dispensing a liquid onto a substrate comprising comprising a container for the liquid with an open end at a distal side and a closed end at a proximal side, and, arranged at the open end of applicator head a at a projecting stop element fixed application means, whereby a receptacle is provided for the stop member to provide an attachment for the applicator, and wherein a supply port for supplying liquid from the container is provided to the application means.

As a container arbitrary shapes and types can be used. Conceivable in this respect are tubes, bottles, jars and all other known in the art forms and types of containers that are suitable for the particular application. Preferably bottle-like containers are used, which is formed such that an output of the liquid does not involve a permanent deformation of one or more container walls. On the one hand, however, a rigid construction of the container walls is possible here, on the other hand, a selection of a material and / or a shape allowing such a restoring force of the container walls, that occurs at a regular deformation of the container walls usually a self-reset to the original state. Preferably used as the material for the container, a plastic is used, preferably a thermoplastic material such as a polypropylene or a polyethylene. Also different container sizes are possible. Thus, in particular containers are in the range from 10ml to 1000ml.

Furthermore, it has proved to be useful to provide a Aufschüttelkörper which is arranged in the container. This can be used for shaking the liquid, which for example, by mixing various ingredients and / or homogenization can be achieved. In particular, the Aufschüttelkörper, a ball, for example made of a metallic material be.

The apparatus is suitable for various applications for outputting different Flüssigketen. Particularly preferably, the apparatus for issuing pre-treatment agents, such as primers for the treatment of sub-foundation for the production of adhesive joints and in corrosion protection is used.

The feed may have any particular eignende and for the respective liquid orifice geometry and opening area. Also, a plurality of supply can be used. Particularly advantageous is one or more feed openings have been found, whose summed total open area in the range from 4mm 2 to 20mm 2, more preferably in the range of 5 mm 2 is up to 16mm. 2 Moreover, it has been found particularly advantageous to provide a slit-shaped supply port disposed, for example, the region of the receptacle around. The area of ​​the receptacle can be fixed to webs or other auxiliary devices, one that can cover the feed opening, for example in regions. Also, there may be a plurality of feed openings, wherein the sum of the opening areas of the plurality of supply ports is preferably in the above-mentioned range.

In this case, the adapter preferably includes a supply ports opposing filling opening for the liquid from the container. The diameter of said filling opening is preferably in the range of 10mm to 20mm. Preferably, the diameter of the filling opening is so selected and above described feed openings are designed such that the ratio between the opening area of ​​the filling opening and opening the summed area of ​​all the feed openings in the range 4-80 is.

The applicator can have any desired design. However, According to the invention the applicator head in at least one projecting stop element with which it is fixed by means of a recording to the container or another part of the device. The retaining element is preferably pin-like, insbesondre in the form of a dome, a pin or a style designed and may have in particular a round, oval, triangular or polygonal Ouerschnitt, wherein the length of the retaining member preferably corresponds to a multiple of the diameter of the retaining element. The retaining element may consist in particular of plastic, wood or metal. Preferably, the retaining element of stainless steel. Preferably, the holding element is constructed of a solid material, not so hollow. The retaining member has two functions. First, it is on the distal side in a fixing function to fix the application agent. is used for the other at the opposite side in a mounting feature of the mounting of the applicator about said housing to the container or to another part of the device. For fixing function is particularly suitable an integral or a force-fit connection technology. So log eignendes for the application delivery device may be fixed for example by means of an adhesive on one side of the holding element. Moreover, it is conceivable pinching of the delivery device by parts of the holding element itself. For the assembly function, is a cohesive, a non-positive or a positive connection technology, or a combination of the above. So it is for example conceivable to provide an adhesive for mounting the holding element in the receptacle. Also, a thread can be provided, for example, or other mounting portion, wherein a corresponding assembly portion is again provided at the reception. It is also conceivable to use corresponding forms of recording and holding member, wherein selbige are designed such that can be provided between the surfaces that come into contact in the mounted state a non-positive connection. Preferably, a re-releasable connection technology for mounting function, the separation may be effected by the user himself without using a tool and preferably may preferably be performed without destruction of the container or parts of the device comes.

The application means may comprise any and eignende for the intended use form. Preferably, the application means is substantially spherical, the spherical shape in particular be interrupted by the pin and / or parts of the container or by other parts of the device in the mounted state and / or can be displaced.

Such a configuration is a particularly easy to manufacture device can be provided. It is conceivable, for example, plikatorkopf equip a universal basic device with an Ap, which is equipped with a fitting for the intended use application means. This is for example the factory conceivable and on the part of the end user. Also applications are conceivable in which a used application head is removed by the connection between the retaining element and the receiving is achieved, and is exchanged for a new application head.

In an advantageous further development, the receptacle for the holding element has a receiving opening for introducing the retaining element, wherein the receiving opening is spatially and functionally separate from the supply opening. The output of the liquid from the container does not take place in this case by the receiving opening, in particular contamination of the receiving opening to avoid. Rather, the discharge of the liquid takes place only through one or more feed openings.

In an advantageous development of the device at the distal side has a protruding neck, the applicator head is arranged such that the application means protrudes distally from the protruding neck towards the side. The neck can in particular serve as an extension or renewal of the application means. Here, the neck may serve for example as a guide in the output of a liquid on a substrate. It also may prove advantageous to form the neck so that it tapers towards the distal side. In particular, the neck can be designed in conical or truncated cone. In a preferred embodiment, the neck has a length in the range of 5mm to 20mm. is preferably a substantially round cross-section in the range of 10mm to 20mm. More preferably, the neck is conical in shape, wherein it has a diameter ranging from 15 mm to 20 mm on the proximal side and on its opposite distal, free side has a diameter ranging from 10mm to 15mm. Further, it has been found to be particularly advantageous that the neck at an angle in the range of 5 ° to - 45 ° in the direction distal side tapered. The angle is provided between the generating line and in particular the cone axis of the neck. In an advantageous development of the shape of the application means is selected such that it projects beyond the protruding neck on the distal side on all sides. For example, an above-described substantially spherical delivery device is conceivable wherein the diameter of the spherical shape is larger than the diameter of the neck at least in the adjacent area.

A further advantage is the equipment of the device with a projecting collar on the distal side below the delivery device having a facing in the distal direction of the stop area to provide a guide way in the dispensing of the liquid. The user can support the device on the stopper portion of the collar, for example, at a free edge of the substrate on which the liquid is to be applied. Preferably, the collar comes into contact with above-described protruding neck used. In this case, has herausgestallt be particularly advantageous when the collar at least partially, but preferably protrudes on all sides in the range from 2mm to 10mm over the neck. In order to facilitate a sliding along a free edge of the substrate, the outer edge of the collar may be rounded or with a radius in the range of 0.5 mm to 3 mm, alternatively, have a chamfer.

In an advantageous further development of the applicator head has a plurality of fibers as the delivery means, which are fixed by the holding member. The applicator is designed in brush-like in this case, which can be the fibers of any nature. So however synthetic fibers are particularly material imaginable from a plastic, and natural fibers, especially from sheep or cotton. Furthermore, the use of a retaining element made of a metallic material may be appropriate, where the particular bent over one end of the retaining element for fixing function in such a way and / or twisted together, the plurality of fibers is fixed. Particularly advantageously, the use of fibers of wool has been found. The applicator may be constructed according to the principle of a known to those skilled wool wiper and assembled. Especially advantageous is the use of fibers with a single fiber length in the range of 5mm to 15mm. Under a simple fiber length, the length of a fiber from the point of attachment to the holding element is to the end to understand. However, it is conceivable to use fibers which are fixed, for example centered on the retaining element, in particular by above-described fixing operation, so that the fibers are even longer. However, in this case, preferably, also the respective free portion of the fiber on each side of the fixation on above-mentioned simple fiber length. Preferably, the fibers are arranged and designed such that they have a spherical shape. The use of such Appli- katorkopfes may prove to be particularly advantageous and therefore, since the user can cut a single or a plurality of fibers such that a desired shape of the delivery device is produced which is particularly suitable for example for the substrate. In all cases, the fibers are preferably designed such that they allow the liquid contained in the solid body or not filter out and hold active ingredients, but transport on the surface to be wetted. Further, it has been found advantageous to use fibers as smooth as possible in order to minimize removal of particulate matter of the substrate, ie, a machining.

Alternatively, however, the use of an applicator can be a sense of a porous material, in particular comprising one or more foam, felt or fiber body as the delivery means, which are secured to the holding element.

Another advantage is the ensuring the interchangeability of the applicator. Here, recording and holding member are designed in particular so that removal of the retaining member is possible to ensure the interchangeability of the applicator head. Thus, preferred is a re-releasable connection technology for the above-described installation function is used, the separation can be effected by the user himself without using a tool and preferably may preferably be performed without destruction of the container or parts of the device. In particular, the user can thus used appli- katorköpfe exchange for unused. The equipment of universal basic device is equipped with an applicator, which is equipped with a fitting for the intended use application means.

Another advantage is the use of an adapter, which is arranged at the open end of the container and includes the recording and the supply opening, wherein the adapter has a means for conveying the liquid so a means of communication between a cavity of the container and the supply port for supplying liquid has from the container to the delivery device. Preferably, the adapter consists of a plastic material. Particularly preferably, a thermoplastic material is used. Here, in particular, polyethylene is suitable. Conceivable here is the manufacturing of the adapter by means of an injection molding process.

The adapter may be designed as a separate component, one which is factory or by the user on the container mountable. For this purpose, the adapter may be equipped with one or more mounting portions to connect the adapter to a container. Preferably these mounting portions are at least partially designed conically and are at least partially inserted into an opening of the container for mounting of the adapter to a container. The adapter may also have sealant to ensure a tight connection to the container. With such an adapter, any container can be used with an above described applicator. Retrofitting of existing containers is possible. A further basic idea of ​​the present invention is, therefore, an adapter comprising a mounting portion for mounting to a container and a receptacle for mounting a Appli- katorkopfes with a delivery device, wherein the adapter a means of communication between the cavity of the container and the supply port for supplying liquid from the container to the delivery device for providing a device described above.

Preferably, the adapter has a plurality of mounting portions for different containers and, in particular different diameters of the openings of different containers. Also may be provided to, or the mounting portions with mounting areas, such as threads, latching regions, conical sections or the like equip.

In an advantageous further development of the adapter on one side has a preferably radially projecting neck configured as described above can bring advantages described above and be. Preferably, the neck narrows it toward the distal side. In particular, the neck can thereby be conical in shape. In a preferred embodiment, the neck has a length in the range of 5mm to 20mm. is preferably a substantially round cross-section in the range of 10mm to 20mm. More preferably, the neck is conical in shape, wherein it has a diameter in the range of 15 mm to 20 mm on the proximal side and on its opposite distal, free side has a diameter ranging from 10mm to 15mm.

In an advantageous development, the adapter has a protruding collar. The collar can then be used in particular as an assembly aid in mounting of the adapter on a container. In addition, the collar may comprise an above-described stopper portion to ensure a guiding way of the apparatus as described above. Preferably, the collar comes into contact with above-described protruding neck used. In this case, has herausgestallt be particularly advantageous when the collar at least partially, but preferably protrudes on all sides in the range from 2mm to 10mm over the neck.

A further basic idea is to provide an assembly comprising a container, an adapter and an application head. The design variants and advantages above described are intended to thereby supplement the disclosure of the individual components of the assembly so far.
