  • Patent number: 10662580
    Abstract: A method for dyeing a modacrylic/cellulosic fabric includes the steps of providing a fabric comprising modacrylic fibers and cellulosic fibers. An aqueous vat dye composition comprising water and a vat dye is applied to the fabric to provide a vat dyed modacrylic/cellulosic fabric. The vat dyed modacrylic/cellulosic fabric is dried. The vat dyed modacrylic/cellulosic fabric is then contacted with a reducing agent. The vat dyed modacrylic/cellulosic fabric is then steamed to promote dye penetration into the fibers. The vat dyed modacrylic/cellulosic fabric is then washed in a first wash step with a wash composition comprising water to remove excess vat dye and reducing agent. The vat dyed modacrylic/cellulosic fabric is contacted with an oxidation oxidizing agent. The vat dyed modacrylic/cellulosic fabric is washed in a second wash step to remove excess oxidation agent.

  • Patent number: 10655273
    Abstract: Described herein are methods of dyeing fibers, and dyed fibers and textiles made using the methods. The methods involve contacting a fiber with a dye liquor at a dye liquor temperature of about 30° C. to 115° C. to form a dyed fiber, wherein the dye liquor components include at least N,N?-diacetyl indigo and a salt solution having ionic strength of about 0.03 M (moles/liter) to 1 M and pH of about 3 to 8 at 20° C. The contacting is generally carried out for a contact period of about 10 seconds to 30 minutes, for example by immersing the fiber in the heated dye liquor. By using the disclosed methods, N,N?-diacetyl indigo is substantially uniformly distributed on the dyed fiber to provide intense, vibrant colors affixed thereto. Dyed textiles display substantially uniform color.

  • Patent number: 10655091
    Abstract: This application relates to thiophene azo dyes for use as hueing agents, laundry care compositions comprising such thiophene azo dyes, processes for making such thiophene azo dyes, and laundry care compositions and methods of using the same. The thiophene azo dyes contain a formally charged moiety and are generally comprised of at least two components: at least one chromophore component and at least one polymeric component. Suitable chromophore components generally fluoresce blue, red, violet, or purple color when exposed to ultraviolet light, or they may absorb light to reflect these same shades. These thiophene azo dyes are advantageous in providing a hueing effect, for example, a whitening effect to fabrics, while not building up over time and causing undesirable blue discoloration to the treated fabrics. The thiophene azo dyes are also generally stable to bleaching agents used in laundry care compositions.
