  • Patent number: 9797771
    Abstract: A process for improving sensitivity of a film base, coated with a dispersion of a normally crystalline polyacetylenic compound in a non-solvating liquid which is dried on the film surface, to particular photon energy band, specifically, long wavelength UV; the polyacetylenic compound preferably having at least two conjugated acetylenic linkages and containing from 12 to 60 carbon atoms. The sensitization of the film to long wavelength UV is achieved via the addition of photoinitiator(s) capable of absorbing UV energy and converting it to free radicals.

  • Publication number: 20160235649
    Abstract: Compositions are disclosed that impart one or more durable hair styling benefits. The durable styling compositions comprise at least a first compound having anhydride, diacid, diester, or half-acid/half-ester functionality, and a second compound having at least one amine moiety or hydroxyl functional group. In one embodiment the durable styling composition takes the form of a leave-in product. The durable styling compositions are heat-activated, which may be accomplished through the use of a heated styling tool like a flat-iron, curling iron, and/or hair dryer. The benefits include shine, conditioning, softness, defrizzing, and improved hair alignment, and endure for up to 5 wash cycles or more without having to reapply the durable styling composition nor heat.
