  • Patent number: 11045064
    Abstract: A flat mop cover for mop-cover holder, where the flat mop cover comprises an elongate basic body. The basic body has a first elongate surface and a second elongate surface, which lie opposite one another. At least one foam-material layer is disposed between the elongate surfaces, and the two elongate surfaces are each configured to be cleaning surfaces. The two elongate surfaces are disposed such that a plate-shaped carrying element of a mop-cover holder is configured to be disposed in a sandwich-like manner between the two surfaces. The basic body is configured to absorb in a reversible manner at least four times, and at most twenty times, its dry weight in liquid, and wherein the foam-material layer has no fibers.

  • Patent number: 11015713
    Abstract: A seal includes: a seal ring, having at least one dynamically stressed seal lip; a supporting ring made of a toughened material; and a connecting device made of an elastomeric material. The seal ring and the supporting ring are connected to one another. The supporting ring includes a radial leg, to which, in a radial direction, the seal lip is fixed. The radial leg is formed of two parts and, in the radial direction, has arranged a first partial leg and, in an other radial direction has arranged a second partial leg. The partial legs are associated adjacent with a first radial distance and delineate a first gap. The first partial leg is connected with the seal lip. The first and the second partial legs are fixed to one another by the connecting device. The connecting device, when viewed in cross section, has an axial length and a radial height.
