  • Patent number: 6846797
    Abstract: Fabric care compositions adapted for use in a laundering process such as detergent compositions and laundry rinse compositions, comprise at least one reactive cationic polymer (preferably amine- or amide-epichlorohydrin resin or a derivative thereof), at least one reactive anionic polymer and at least one textile compatible carrier. The compositions have improved dye transfer and stain release properties and may be used in methods of treating fabric as part of a laundering process.

  • Publication number: 20040253376
    Abstract: The invention relates to a fabric treatment composition for use in a tumble dryer where the benefit agent(s) is/are contained within a rigid outer shell. A first aspect of the present invention provides a dispenser comprising a rigid and fragile outer shell and containing a benefit agent, together with instructions to use the same in the tumble dryer. A second aspect of the present invention provides for a method of fabric treatment which comprises the steps of: a) placing the fabric, together with a dispenser in a tumble-drier, and, b) operating the tumble drier, wherein the dispenser comprises a rigid and fragile outer shell and contains a benefit agent. The benefit agent contained within the shell can be in a powder, gel or liquid form, such that when the outer shell breaks, the agents are released to deposit onto the fabric, thus imparting the required benefit. It is believed that a shell which fragments to a fine powder enables the rapid release and dispersal of the benefit agent.

  • Patent number: 6793684
    Abstract: A fabric care composition, which is adapted for use in a domestic laundering process, comprises an anionic polymer which is capable of self cross-linking and/or of reacting with cellulosic fibers, such as cotton, and a textile compatible exhaustion agent which is also a fabric conditioner. The polymer may be a carbamoyl sulphonate terminated poly(ether) urethane or a bunte salt terminated polymer. The polymers can increase the dimensional stability of the fabric, improve its surface color definition after washing, impart a softer handle and improve its crease recovery properties.

  • Patent number: 6775593
    Abstract: A combination utility controller and service panel having an outer overall enclosure with a lockable door for limiting access thereto to authorized persons. Within the overall enclosure are two sub-regions that are separated from each other by gas-tight paneling. One of these sub-regions (i.e., a service region) contains at least one electrically-operated (e.g., solenoid-operated) valve that is serially connected within service utilities (e.g., water or gas) piping so as to control flow therethrough. The other sub-region (i.e., a utility controller region) contains electrical controls for controlling the valve(s) and communicating with other services such as an auxiliary monitoring system (e.g., a fire alarm system).

  • Patent number: 6536717
    Abstract: A single post adjustable support device to provide interval support to a drain piping system where the piping is required to be suspended above a roof surface at continually changing elevations due to the need to have the piping system maintain a continual and gradual slope, compensating for un-regular surface conditions of the roof surface.

  • Patent number: 6183016
    Abstract: An invented Labeling Insulation Tape that combines a conventional insulation tape with pipe identification markings or lettering. According to one embodiment, the identification markings are repeatedly printed onto the tape in a continuous form fashion creating on the tape a series of individual label sections. Conventional printing techniques are used in the printing of the tape. The labeling insulation tape is then cut and rolled into convenient-to-use lengths. Alternate embodiments include the tape being cut into lengths equal to individual labels and a long roll of peel-off backing with a multiplicity of individual label releasably adhered thereto.
