  • Publication number: 20110275261
    Abstract: The invention relates to a composition which, when mixed with a polymer composition, allows for the formation of a continuous and cohesive film. The film is characterized in that it provides water, grease and oil resistance, provides a water vapour barrier and can be used as wax replacement treatment and a top coat for flexible packaging, but also on other substrates. This film is formed at a very fast set speed without the need of thermal energy. The composition contains i) a salt of one or more of myristic, palmitic and stearic acid; and preferably also ii) a C9-C18 fatty acid complex of a metal ion, said metal ion having an oxidation state of at least 3. The invention also provides processes and coated substrates.

    Abstract: A multifunctional, responsive functional layer on a substrate, such as textiles, paper and plastic materials, includes at least one first and a second functional component, of which at least one of the second functional components meets the chemical-functional and constitutional specification for responsive behavior and thereby can be reversibly switched by an outer stimulus. The first and second functional components differ with respect to the intrinsically specified properties thereof and are matched to each other, wherein at least one of the functional components on the substrate is present as a physical-chemical compound. Methods are disclosed for producing the multifunctional, responsive functional layer, which enable the combination of functions, such as moisture management, soil release, antistatic, hydrophobicity, hydrophilicity, oleophobicity, controlled release, and conductivity.

  • Patent number: 7964552
    Abstract: This invention relates to surfactant compositions comprising a fluorosurfactant and a siloxane surfactant wherein the fluorosurfactant exhibits a disproportionate effect upon the resulting surfactant composition's ability to lower equilibrium surface tension. The fluorosurfactants and siloxane surfactants identified by the present invention exhibit a desirable disproportionate effect from the fluorosurfactant acting upon the resulting surfactant composition's ability to lower equilibrium surface tension. Because of this disproportionate effect, surfactant compositions of the present invention with no more than 21 weight percent fluorosurfactant have nearly identical ability to lower equilibrium surface tensions compared with surfactant compositions having higher amounts of fluorosurfactant.
