  • Publication number: 20140255597
    Abstract: A nonwoven wipe having a reversible sanitizer indicator for multiple uses and recharges is provided. The nonwoven wipe includes a cloth-like nonwoven fabric coated with a reversible color-changing ink formulation. During use, the nonwoven wipe is impregnated with a quaternary ammonium compound-based sanitizer. When the level of free quaternary ammonium compound falls below a threshold level, the color-changing ink formulation changes from a first color to a second color, indicating the need to recharge the wipe. When the nonwoven wipe is recharged with sanitizer solution, the color-changing ink formulation changes back to the first color.

  • Publication number: 20140243134
    Abstract: A belt comprises at least a belt body made of a polymer material having elastic properties, the belt including a cover layer as a belt backing, a substructure having a force-transmission zone, and a tension member in a ribbed design embedded in the belt body. The tension member is prepared with a cross-linked polyurethane in such a way that the polyurethane fills at least part of the tension member cavities. The polyurethane filling material enters into a mechanical connection to the tension member on the one hand and an adhesive connection to the belt body on the other hand. The polyurethane filling material has a Shore A hardness that is 0.5 to 10 times harder than the Shore A hardness of the belt body. The belt body is preferably likewise made of cross-linked polyurethane, in particular using a carbon tension member.

  • Patent number: 8785549
    Abstract: A protective sealant composition that is useful for sealing a colorant to a substrate, such as carpet. The protective sealant composition is formulated such that, upon drying, the composition forms a topcoat on the surface of the substrate, with the topcoat having a hard component and a soft component. The composition provides a durable protection against color fading and resoiling to the applied colorant, as well as to the rest of the surface of the substrate. The composition also provides wear resistance to the carpet by reducing the amount that the widths of the top ends of carpet fibers increase when subjected to wearing.

  • Patent number: 8772404
    Abstract: A composition for treating carpets. The composition seals and protects a portion of a polyester carpet to which a colorant is applied such that, after the polyester carpet is walked on by 30,000 steps and vacuumed by 600 strokes, the ?ECMC (l:c=2:1) of the portion of the polyester carpet to which the colorant is applied is less than about 6.0. The ?CCMC of the portion of the polyester carpet to which the colorant is applied is less than about ?3.0 D. The composition imparts wear resistance to a nylon carpet such that an average width of free ends of carpet fibers that form the nylon carpet increases by less than about 10% when the nylon carpet is subjected to a simulated wear test that includes contacting the carpet fibers to a steel beating bar, covered with nylon, in a drum rotating at thirty-five rotations/minute for seventy-two hours.
