Sammanfattning

A quantitative radiochemical measuring procedure was used to investigate soil adhesion on laboratory-made polyvinyl chloride (PVC) surfaces. The materials contained different plasticizers and microstructures. Both the quality and amount of plasticizers and the microstructure affected the cleanability of the PVC samples. The surface topography and structures were examined with a contact angle meter, atomic force microscopy (AFM) and a contact profilometer. (c) 2006 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
