Abstract (en)

The method for keeping clean surfaces of laundry machinery, in particular, for reducing material deposits on machinery surfaces coming into contact with liquids, consists of constituting these surfaces in such a way that their adhesiveness is at least reduced. An Independent claim is also included for items of laundry machinery having surfaces with reduced adhesiveness.

Abstract (de)

Bei Wäschereimaschinen bilden insbesondere Zusätze in der Waschflüssigkeit mit der Zeit Ablagerungen. Diese Ablagerungen führen insbesondere auf den mit den Wäschestücken in Berührung kommenden Oberflächen der Wäschereimaschinen zu Beeinträchtigungen der Wäschestücke. Um diese Beeinträchtigungen zu vermeiden, sind nach der Erfindung mindestens die mit den Wäschestücken in Berührung kommenden metallenen Oberflächen der Wäschereimaschinen mit einer nichthaftenden Beschichtung versehen oder weisen verringerte Haftfähigkeit auf. Dazu sind die Oberflächen selbst oder durch Aufbringung einer Beschichtung mit einer Mikrostruktur nach Art von Lotusblättern versehen. Solche Oberflächen werden von Flüssigkeiten nicht benetzt. vielmehr bilden sich Flüssigkeitstropfen, die abperlen und Verunreinigungen abspülen, so dass sich die Verunreinigungen an den Oberflächen bzw. Beschichtungen nicht mehr festsetzen können.
