  • Patent number: 8865639
    Abstract: The invention relates to copolymers which contain a) at least 15% by weight units of an ethylenically unsaturated carboxylic acid, b) at least 15% by weight units of a C4-C8-alkylacrylats, c) less than 5% by weight units of methyl methacrylate, and are used as thickeners in liquid textile detergents. The copolymers can additionally contain units of a non-ionic ethylenically unsaturated surfactant monomer that are incorporated by polymerization. The thickeners are characterized by high thickening action, high shear thinning and low graying of the laundry after the washing process.

  • Patent number: 8232356
    Abstract: A method is described for producing an aqueous thickener dispersion from a monomer composition made of at least one ethylenically unsaturated carboxylic acid and at least one ethylenically unsaturated hydrophobic monomer, (i) an at least partially polymerized pre-emulsion being produced from 10 to 80 wt.-% of said monomer composition, and (ii) the residual quantity of said monomer composition being added completely to the at least partially polymerized pre-emulsion and initiating a radical polymerization. The monomer composition preferably also comprises an associative monomer. The method avoids disadvantages of batch polymerization, such as inadequate batch-to-batch reproducibility and safety problems.

  • Publication number: 20090142596
    Abstract: The process for producing multilayered sheetlike structures, particles or fibers comprises the steps of (a) applying a reactive polycarboxylic acid or one of its derivatives atop a sheetlike, particulate or fibrous carrier material already comprising, or previously provided with, groups reactive toward, capable of covalent bonding with, the polycarboxylic acid or one of its derivatives, (b) if appropriate heating the carrier material treated in step (a) to a temperature in the range from 60° C. to 130° C. and preferably to a temperature in the range from 80° C. to 120° C. to hasten, complete or further optimize the covalent bonds, (c) applying atop the carrier material a cellulose capable of covalent bonding with the polycarboxylic acid or its derivatives.
