  • Patent number: 7820010
    Abstract: Tissue products are disclosed containing an additive composition. The additive composition, for instance, comprises an aqueous dispersion containing an olefin polymer, an ethylene-carboxylic acid copolymer, or mixtures thereof. The olefin polymer may comprise an interpolymer of ethylene and octene, while the ethylene-carboxylic acid copolymer may comprise ethylene-acrylic acid copolymer. The additive composition may also contain a dispersing agent, such as a fatty acid. The additive composition may be incorporated into the tissue web by being combined with the fibers that are used to form the web. Alternatively, the additive composition may be topically applied to the web after the web has been formed. For instance, in one embodiment, the additive composition may be applied to the web as a creping adhesive during a creping operation. The additive composition may improve the strength of the tissue web without substantially affecting the perceived softness of the web in an adverse manner.

  • Patent number: 4498145
    Abstract: A method for assuring atomicity of user requested multi-row update operations to tables such as in a relational database, guarantees that for any update operation that succeeds all stated effects will have occurred and that for any update operation that fails the system state as perceived by the user remains unchanged. This is accomplished by establishing, in response to a multi-row update operation request, an execution module of a program containing sets of machine language code instructions implementing the update operation request with a savepoint request at the beginning of the execution module of the program. For each set of machine language code instructions in or called by the execution module which modified the user perceived system state, information is logged to a soft log.
