  • Publication number: 20120308790
    Abstract: The invention relates to a surface treatment composition for paper, board or other fibrous webs. The composition of the invention comprises particles which comprise an active material and a supporting material. The active material comprises a salt or a multivalent metal, such as a divalent or trivalent metal. In accordance with the invention, the supporting material is adapted to release the active material from the particles when subjected to heat and/or pressure and/or a change in pH. Consequently, the active material's adverse effects on the rheology of the composition are avoided while its desired effects on the surface characteristics are retained or enhanced.

  • Publication number: 20120288670
    Abstract: A film capable of emitting far infrared rays is composed of a surface layer and a carbonic layer coating the surface layer. The carbonic layer includes carbon of at least 60 wt %. When the film is applied to the human skin, the temperature of the skin can be heightened and the blood circulation can be enhanced, so the absorbability of the active ingredients in the film by the human skin can be enhanced. Beside, the film can resist ultraviolet rays to prevent the skin from ultraviolet injury.
