  • Publication number: 20180290428
    Abstract: This invention relates to a washable floor mat comprising a reinforcement layer. The floor mat includes a textile component and a base component. The textile component contains a reinforcement layer which dramatically reduces and/or eliminates edge deformation that often occurs as a result of the washing process. The textile component and the base component may be joined together to form a single piece floor mat. Alternatively, the textile component and the base component may be releasably attachable to one another by at least one surface attraction means to form a multi-component floor mat. The floor mat is designed to be soiled, washed, and re-used, thereby providing ideal end-use applications in areas such as building entryways.

  • Patent number: 9982096
    Abstract: A composition comprises at least one condensed phosphorus compound. The condensed phosphorus compound is produced by reacting together in a condensation reaction a nitrogen compound and a phosphonium compound. A phosphorus-containing polymer is produced by reacting in a condensation reaction a hydroxyalkylphosphonium compound to produce an intermediate polymer and then oxidizing phosphorus atoms in the intermediate polymer to yield a polymer comprising phosphine oxide groups.

  • Patent number: 8541056
    Abstract: Compositions and methods for treating textile substrates to obtain superior liquid repellent properties are disclosed. Durable microscopic surface structures imparted to the fibrous substrate allow liquids to bead up and roll off of its surface. Mechanical abrasion or sanding techniques may be used to create the microscopic surface structures on the surface of a fibrous textile substrate, without substantially breaking fibers, followed by a chemical treatment using, for example, fluorocarbon-containing repellent compositions. Particles may be employed in combination with repellent compositions to achieve superior repellent properties. A property of the roughened surface fibers, the Roughness Factor, is used to characterize the microscopic surface structures on the treated textile surface. Treated textile substrates are disclosed which achieve superior water and oil repellency, even after multiple abrasion or laundering cycles.
