  • Patent number: 9920471
    Abstract: A rain-test resistant, high-vapor-permeable, water-repellent and water-resistant manufacturing process for making such fabrics is provided. It is used in the dyeing and finishing process of fabric in which the fabric is treated with the treatment roller, knife roller, and spray methods. These combined methods can coat water-repellent agent on the fabric and form a very thin film on the fabric. This protective film on the fabric enhances the wash resistance of the fabric while it will not adversely affect the water repellence and water resistance of the fabric. Moreover, this technique of forming a very thin water-repellent film on the fabric rules out the conventional method with which the water-repellent agent dipped within the fabric structure is easily washed out with regular laundry of the fabric due to the lesser amount of the agent being attached onto the fabric.

  • Publication number: 20130209699
    Abstract: A long-lasting water-repellency textile application that uses a polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS)-containing polyurethane (PU) involves a manufacturing process of NCO-terminated PU prepolymer of PDMS diols and polyisocyanate with a catalyst for forming a moisture-curable PDMS-containing PU oligomer, or becoming an UV-curable PDMS-containing PU oligomer after a chemical reaction takes place. The PU oligomer owns PDMS moiety with water-repellent properties. The moisture- or UV-curable PU with NCO and acrylate end-groups can create cross-linked polymeric networks between fibers of textiles by exposing to the air or UV-radiation. The final cross-linked PDMS-containing PU treated textile demonstrates long-lasting water-repellent properties with an excellent soft hand feel and a breathable feature. Furthermore, the textile water-repellent treatment is cost-effective, and most importantly these two different curing processes could be carried out at ambient temperature without requiring any waste water discharge.

  • Patent number: 7829146
    Abstract: Compositions, methods, apparatuses, kits, and combinations are described for neutralizing a stain on a surface. The compositions useful in the present disclosure include a composition that is formulated to be applied and affixed to a surface. If desired, the composition may be substantially removed from the surface to remove a portion or substantially all of the stain before being affixed to the surface. If a user desires to remove the composition from the surface, the composition is formulated to be removed by a number of methods including, for example, vacuuming, wet extraction, chemical application, and the like. If the user desires to affix the composition to the surface in a permanent or semi-permanent manner, the composition may be affixed to the surface by applying energy thereto in the form of, for example, heat, pressure, emitted waves, an emitted electrical field, a magnetic field, and/or a chemical.

  • Patent number: 7803431
    Abstract: A method for coating yarn is proposed, including steps in which the yarn is first placed in contact with a dispersion of the coating agent in a dispersing agent or with the coating agent in melted form, optionally excess dispersion or melt is scraped back off the yarn, and then the coating is formed on the yarn, where in the case of the dispersion this occurs by means of at least partially removing the dispersing agent by heating, and the yarn thus coated is then cooled down and wound, which is distinguished by the fact that the coated yarn undergoes additional cooling before winding.

  • Publication number: 20100183821
    Abstract: A UVLED apparatus and method provide efficient curing of an optical-fiber coating onto a drawn glass fiber. The apparatus and method employ one or more UVLEDs that emit electromagnetic radiation into a curing space. An incompletely cured optical-fiber coating, which is formed upon a glass fiber, absorbs emitted and reflected electromagnetic radiation to effect improved curing.

  • Publication number: 20100158469
    Abstract: The invention relates to coated optical fibers comprising soft primary coatings and to such primary coatings for protecting glass optical fibers having a sufficient high resistance against cavitation. In particular, the primary coatings have a cavitation strength at which a tenth cavitation appears (?10cav) of at least about 1.0 MPa as measured at a deformation rate of 0.20% min?1 and of at least about 1.4 times their storage modulus at 23° C. The coating preferably shows strain hardening in a relative Mooney plot, preferably has a strain energy release rate Go of about 20 J/m2 or more, and preferably has a low volumetric thermal expansion coefficient. The invention furthermore provides a method and apparatus for measuring the cavitation strength of a primary coating.

  • Publication number: 20100092689
    Abstract: A long-lasting water-repellency textile application that uses a polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS)-containing polyurethane (PU) involves a manufacturing process of NCO-terminated PU prepolymer of PDMS diols and polyisocyanate with a catalyst for forming a moisture-curable PDMS-containing PU oligomer, or becoming an UV-curable PDMS-containing PU oligomer after a chemical reaction takes place. The PU oligomer owns PDMS moiety with water-repellent properties. The moisture- or UV-curable PU with NCO and acrylate end-groups can create cross-linked polymeric networks between fibers of textiles by exposing to the air or UV-radiation. The final cross-linked PDMS-containing PU treated textile demonstrates long-lasting water-repellent properties with an excellent soft hand feel and a breathable feature. Furthermore, the textile water-repellent treatment is cost-effective, and most importantly these two different curing processes could be carried out at ambient temperature without requiring any waste water discharge.

    Abstract: A method of manufacturing a reinforced tubular membrane comprises the steps of manufacturing the tubular support from monofilament thread, impregnating the support with membrane dope and adjusting the inner and the outer diameter of the membrane. A coating apparatus comprises a casting bob and an orifice to adjust respectively the inner and outer diameter of the membrane. A tubular reinforced polymeric membrane comprises a tubular support and membrane substance. The tubular support is made of monofilament thread and has a sufficiently open structure (openings larger than 0.1 mm). Touching and/or engaging parts of the thread may be linked prior to impregnating the support with membrane dope. The support may comprise loops of the monofilament thread, which are also linked.
