  • Patent number: 9149550
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a stable, aqueous freshener composition for the reduction or elimination of malodors in air and on fabrics. The composition comprises from about 0.1% to about 3.0% by weight, hydrogen peroxide as a malodor oxidant; an effective level of undecylenic acid (and/or derivative thereof) as a malodor absorber preblended with a fragrance; a surfactant to solubilize the fragrance/malodor absorber blend; an acid based stabilizer in a range from about 0.008% to about 0.60% by weight; an optional pH buffer; and an aqueous carrier. The composition can be delivered via a spray dispenser for treatment of indoor air and fabrics. The composition has a pH of less than about 6 and does not contain ingredients known to soil, stain or damage fabrics. When applied as a fine mist, the composition delivers effective control of a broad range of malodors, while remaining imperceptible on surfaces when dry.

  • Publication number: 20090304608
    Abstract: An aqueous hydrogen peroxide solution for use in disinfectants, soaps, shower gels, and mouth rinses is provided, with improved disinfectant and anti-microbial activity. The solutions contain at least one phosphorus based acid compound, e.g. phosphoric and/or a phosphonate and a cationic or non-ionic surfactant. Importantly, the solutions do not require the presence of an anionic surfactant to achieve the objects of the invention, thus enabling successful manufacturing using multiple formulation methods. The solution may also contain fragrances, degreasers, flavors, or other additives depending on the purposes and intended functions of the solutions.

  • Patent number: 7309429
    Abstract: The invention is a granular media filter for in-line liquid applications that allows media as fine as 44 micron to be used to increase the removal of contaminants from the liquid with adequate flows consisting of a specific arrangement. A flow distributor has a non-woven fiber web welded to it; followed by a mixture of fine particle media (finer than 20×50 mesh); followed by a compressible chlorine resistant open cell polyurethane foam, then a 5 micron rated meltblown fiber tube attached to the outlet end by melt adhesive on one end and closed with a plastic plug on the other end. The foam can be either polyurethane or polyolefin, and it can be either open cell foam, or reticulated and open cell foam. A preferred embodiment includes within the fine particle media 10% by weight of flow-enhancing antimicrobial plastic pellets, about 4-5 mm in diameter and having an aspect ratio of 2-3, the pellets encapsulating an antimicrobial additive.

  • Patent number: 6108847
    Abstract: A brush having antimicrobial characteristics that inhibit bacterial growth. The antimicrobial agents, compounds or chemicals are embedded in either the body or bristles or both of the brush. Further, the present invention is a method of manufacturing a brush having antimicrobial characteristics that inhibit bacterial growth. An antimicrobial additive is incorporated in resin concentrate form into the amorphous zones of the molecular structure of the polymer from which brush handles are injection molded, thereby incorporating the antimicrobial agent into the brush handle. The antimicrobial additive in the body of the brush, incorporated in the manner above, results in substantive controlled migration from the body to the bristles, until a point of equilibrium is reached. The invention is suitable for any brush in which bristles are embedded in plastic, including toothbrushes, hair brushes, scrub brushes, toilet bowl brushes, cosmetic brushes, lip-color brushes, etc.

  • Patent number: 5823978
    Abstract: An orthopedic casting material having strength and porosity characteristics which heretofore have been associated only with high modulus fibers, while using casting material comprising a fabric made from a multi-filament, low modulus fiber. The fabric is impregnated with a reactive resin which hardens by wetting with a curing agent. A method for making an orthopedic cast and the resulting cast product are also disclosed, as is coloring of the cast product in a variety of desired colors and patterns.

  • Patent number: 5738639
    Abstract: A system for improving the handling of a resin coated substrate for molding and smoothing into an orthopedic cast includes a core which is coated with a substance which is substantially inert to the resinous prepolymer in a sealed storage pouch. Water, used to activate the resinous prepolymer, carries the coating to the surface of the substrate, thereby improving handling during the molding process. During normal operation, the cast applier removes the resin coated or impregnated substrate from the storage container and dips it in a water bath to initiate the polymerization process. After removal from the water bath, the applier wraps the substrate around a patient's limb and molds and smooths the substrate to form an orthopedic cast. Once the core about which the resin coated substrate is wrapped is exposed to water, the lubricant is transferred by the water to the outside portion of the cast tape, reducing the tackiness of the cast tape, thereby facilitating its overall handling.

  • Patent number: 5238749
    Abstract: An improved antimicrobial coated product and a method for coating substrates, the product of which is capable of withstanding high impact, is not subject to corrosion, is resistant to germ retention and transfer, and thus is extremely well suited for the containment of toxic, hazardous, corrosive, and bacteria-laden wastes as well as for products which are resistant to attack from fungus, positive and negative bacteria, yeast infections and contaminations, and viruses, as well as resistant to attack from corrosion, corrosive chemicals, caustic chemicals, and radiation. The substrate is coated with a thermoplastic material incorporating an antimicrobial agent by electrostatic, fluidized bed or flame spraying techniques. Alternatively, the substrate may be coated with a combination of a thermosetting resin and a thermoplastic material, either or both incorporating an antimicrobial agent, all of which can be cured in place.

  • Patent number: 5014691
    Abstract: A brace for an ankle includes first and second ankle guards for placement over the medial and lateral portions of the ankle, respectively. A foot sole piece connects the two ankle guards. A first densified batting pad attaches to the first ankle guard so that the pad makes contact with the medial portion of the ankle. A second densified batting pad is similarly attached to the second ankle guard so that it makes contact with the lateral portion of the ankle. The brace also includes means for securing the brace to the ankle, such as VELCRO closures.

  • Patent number: 5000979
    Abstract: A process for coating a substrate such as steel, that will hold an electrostatic charge, wherein a first coating of a thermosetting resin an amine cured opoxy resin of the family diglycidylether of bisphenol-A, is applied to the substrate electrostatically or by fluidized bed methods, a second layer of thermoplastic material is applied electrostatically to the coating of thermosetting material, the substrate is heated and the coatings are cured and bonded to the substrate and to each other at a temperature of from 355.degree. F. to 430.degree. F. for a period of about 6 to about 22 minutes, whereby the first and second coating materials become cross-linked and develop a high degree of impermeability.Coated substrates made according to the process can be used in the fabrication of items that must withstand ultraviolet or nuclear radiation plus chemical and corrosive attack including containers for toxic and hazardous materials, as well as low level radioactive materials.
