  • Patent number: 4225491
    Abstract: Azo pyridone dyestuffs containing at least one reactive phosphoric or phosphonic acid group. The dyestuffs are characterized by the formula:A -- N .dbd. N -- Rwherein A is an aromatic radical containing at least one phosphoric or phosphonic acid group and R is a monovalent radical derived from a pyridone coupling component by removing a hydrogen atom attached to a ring carbon atom of the pyridone ring. The aromatic radical A is preferably a phenyl or naphthyl group. In addition to its phosphonic or phosphoric acid group or groups, radical A may be substituted with one or more halogen, alkyl, alkoxy, nitro, sulfonic acid or carboxylic acid groups. Cellulosic textiles, e.g., cotton or cotton/polyester blends, may be reactively dyed with these dyestuffs in an acid, neutral or alkaline bath using dicyandiamide or the equivalent. The phosphoric or phosphonic acid groups and the cellulosic material react to fix the dye through an ester linkage.

  • Patent number: 4012353
    Abstract: Cationic, cross-linkable acrylic-polyester emulsion binder resin systems are described which are useful as adhesives for binding organic, metal, and glass filaments to each other and to various substrates in the preparation of reinforced composites. These novel binder resin systems are derived from copolymerized ethylenically unsaturated monomers having pendant non-functional, cross-linking functional, and cationic groups. The cationic polymer emulsions are particularly useful when they are cross-linked with polyester resin polymer chains such as those formed by condensing unsaturated dicarboxylic acids with polyols and which can be applied as stable aqueous emulsions.
