  • Patent number: 9365807
    Abstract: The application describes the use of porous polyamide particles which have a volume-weighted median particle size of 1 to 50 ?m, an oil absorption capacity of at least 60 g/100 g, and a specific BET surface area (as specified in DIN 66131) of 1 to 20 m2/g, for removing greasy stains from textile surfaces in a laundry detergent or cleaning agent which is used in a laundry or cleaning process.

  • Publication number: 20150275146
    Abstract: The aim of the invention is to improve the primary detergency of detergents and cleaning agents, in particular with respect to soils containing oil and/or grease. This is substantially achieved by the incorporation of polymers which can be obtained by the copolymerization of N-vinylpyrrolidone with ethylenically unsaturated compounds that have an amide function, said polymers having an aggregation parameter Xag, where Xag>1 mN/m.

  • Publication number: 20150275134
    Abstract: The primary washing power of detergents and cleaning agents, particularly with regard to protein-containing soiling, was to be improved. This was achieved substantially by incorporating a combination of polyalkoxylated polyamine with alkoxylated C8-C22 alcohol having an average alkoxylation degree in the range from 1 to 5.
