    Abstract: Iodine or iodophor stain resistance is imparted to a surface by applying a hardenable coating composition containing an effective amount of a reducing agent having a redox potential sufficient to decolorize an iodine or iodophor stain. The reducing agent reacts with triiodide anion in the stain to change the stain coloration from a yellowish hue (e.g., yellow-white, yellow or brown) towards a lighter hue (e.g., pale yellow, white or transparent). This decolorization reaction takes place over a period of minutes, hours or days, and preferably can eventually cause the stain to disappear.

    Abstract: An improved self-cleaning polish is obtained by adding a wax to an oil either pre-heated, or then subsequently heated, with stirring. Subsequently, and optionally, water and./or an acetic acid source, preferably vinegar, is added, either before or after partly or completely cooling the heated wax/oil mixture. Special-purpose additives may be added, such as salts, abrasives, suspending aids, preservatives, emulsifiers, colorants, fragrances, etc. However, no solvent other than the oil is necessary, a decided improvement over existing technology.

  • Patent number: 6156108
    Abstract: Water in oil emulsion formulations comprise:a) from about 55% to about 65% by weight of the formulation of an aliphatic hydrocarbon solvent comprising a maximum of 10% aromatic hydrocarbons;b) from about 15% to about 25% by weight of a wax product which is emulsifiable, possesses a polar component and has a melting/softening point in the range of from 60.degree. C. to about 90.degree. C.;c) from about 1% to about 5% by weight of an emulsifier;d) from 0 to about 0.5% by weight of a resin; ande) about 13% to about 18% by weight water, with the proviso that the combination of solvent and wax products comprises at least about 75% of the total composition. The formulations are useful as surface polishes that can be used on any hard surface including wood, metal, stone, and other non-porous surfaces.

  • Patent number: 6001730
    Abstract: A method for forming a copper interconnect on an integrated circuit (IC) begins by forming a dielectric layer (20) having an opening. A tantalum-based barrier layer (21), such as TaN or TaSiN, is formed within the opening in the layer (20). A copper layer (22) is formed over the barrier layer (21). A first CMP process is used to polish the copper (22) to expose portions of the barrier (21). A second CMP process which is different from the first CMP process is then used to polish exposed portions of the layer (21) faster than the dielectric layer (20) or the copper layer (22). After this two-step CMP process, a copper interconnect having a tantalum-based barrier is formed across the integrated circuit substrate (12).

  • Patent number: 5968238
    Abstract: An improved polishing composition is provided that includes an emulsion of a oil-based components and water-based components and a water soluble polishing agent. The polishing composition of the present invention is rubbed on a painted surface, hosed off with water and wiped or towel dried. Because of the use of a water soluble polishing agent in the polishing composition, all or substantially all of the polishing agent is washed away with the water. This eliminates the need for a two-step polishing process wherein a polishing composition is applied to a surface and allowed to dry in a first step and the surface is buffed with a dry cloth in a second step. One preferred embodiment of the present invention includes silicones, water, a nonionic or anionic surfactant and a water soluble polishing agent. Optionally, the polishing composition may include a solvent, mineral oil, wax, and a preservative.

  • Patent number: 5935278
    Abstract: An abrasive composition for polishing a substrate for a magnetic recording disc is described, which comprises finely divided zirconium oxide particles, an abrasion promoter, an optional water-soluble oxidizing agent, and water. This abrasive composition is used for polishing a substrate for a magnetic recording disc by a process wherein the substrate is polished with a pad while the abrasive composition is supplied between the substrate and the pad, and at least one of the pad and the substrate is rotated. The contents of the finely divided zirconium oxide particles, the abrasion promoter and the optional water-soluble oxidizing agent are 2-20 wt. %, 1-20 wt. % and up to 10 wt. %, respectively, based on the weight of the abrasive composition as used for polishing the substrate.
