  • Patent number: 10526447
    Abstract: Methods and compositions are provided for heat treating, e.g. quenching a metal. The quenching composition includes a composition that comprises a polyamidopolyamine compound having a molecular weight of about 500 to about 100,000 and comprising a pendent amino group; and/or a non-polymeric amidoamine having a molecular weight of about 290 to about 5000 and comprising an amino group; and a hydroxyl containing diluent. These compositions impart one or more of the functions of quenching, lubricity, anti/low foaming and/or bioresistance to the quenching fluid.

  • Publication number: 20190216276
    Abstract: A potting training device for preventing a potty training child's urine stream from passing through an opening between the toilet seat and the toilet bowl is made of a flexible, water-resistant, preferably non-porous flat sheet material, having a folding seam separating the device into an top portion containing a plurality of attachment tabs and a bottom portion containing a urine-deflector. An adhesive material is applied to the surface of each attachment tab and attaches the attachment tabs to the underside of the toilet seat. The flat sheet material, in its unattached configuration, is manipulated into a curved configuration that matches the curvature of the toilet seat, and is attached thereto.
