  • Patent number: 6197851
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a container preform comprising: a polymer suitable for the production of a stretch blow molded bottle and at least one organic or metallated organic near infrared absorbing compound which absorbs at least twice as much light between about 700 nm and about 1200 nm as between about 400 mn and about 700 nm wherein said near infrared absorbing compound is present in an amount sufficient to improve reheat rate of said preform. Suitable near infrared absorbing compounds include phthalocyanines, 2,3-napthalocyanines, squaraines (squaric acid derivatives), croconic acid derivatives, substituted indanthrones and certain highly substituted anthraquinones. A process for improving the reheat rate of a container preform is also disclosed.

  • Patent number: 5973038
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a black polymeric composition suitable for use in films, fibers and molded articles, where a soluble, easily dispersed colorant is desirable. The black polymeric composition provides a high black color quality and is small enough to function as a black colorant in microdenier fibers. The black polymeric composition comprises a thermoplastic resin in an amount between about 50 weight percent and about 99.9 weight percent of the black polymeric composition, and a black dye composition in an amount between about 0.1 weight percent and about 50 weight percent of the black polymeric composition. The black dye composition contains a black indanthrone compound as a major component. As used herein, black indanthrone compounds are defined as compounds having the general structure represented by Formula I: ##STR1## wherein R is hydrogen or at least one group independently selected from C.sub.1 -C.sub.8 alkyl, C.sub.1 -C.sub.

  • Patent number: 5705600
    Abstract: The present invention relates to blends of a polyester, polyamide or polyester/amide containing a copolymerizable fluorescence quenching compound and a second polymer. The blends of the present invention display reduced fluorescence. Specifically the blends comprise(a) a polyester/amide comprising:(1) a dicarboxylic acid component which comprises at least 0.1 mol % of a dicarboxylic acid selected from the group consisting of terephthalic acid and/or terephthalate ester;(2) a diol and/or diamine component;(3) 0.1 to 99.9 mol %, based on 100 mol % dicarboxylic acid and 100 mol % diol, of a copolymerizable fluorescence quenching compound;(b) a second polymer selected from the group poly(alkylene terephthalate) homo and copolyesters, poly(alkylene naphthalate) homo and copolyesters, poly(cycloalkylene terephthalate) homo and copolyesters, poly(alkylene 1,4-cyclohexanedicarboxylate) homo and copolyesters, and polycarbonate homo and copolymers.
