    Abstract: A liquid-retaining sheet contains a liquid-retaining layer that is able to absorb a liquid component, and the liquid-retaining layer is formed from a nonwoven structural member containing a transparent fiber. In the liquid-retaining sheet, the transparency shown below is adjusted to not more than 0.27. Transparency=Whiteness (%) of a sheet impregnated with 700% by mass of water relative to the sheet mass/Basis weight (g/m2) The transparent fiber may contain a cellulose-series fiber substantially free from a carboxyl group (in particular, a regenerated cellulose fiber such as a solvent-spinning cellulose-series fiber). The proportion of the solvent-spinning cellulose-series fiber may be not less than 30% by mass in the transparent fiber. The liquid-retaining sheet may be a skin care sheet (in particular, a facial mask) that is impregnated with a liquid component containing a cosmetic preparation.

  • Publication number: 20150075852
    Abstract: The prepreg in accordance with the present invention is formed from a resin composition and a fabric substrate impregnated with the resin composition. The resin composition contains: (A) a thermosetting resin composition; (B) a resin having a Tg not more than 100° C.; and (C) an inorganic filler. The resin (B) having the Tg not more than 100° C. has: a carbonyl group or a siloxane group; and an epoxy group or a phenolic hydroxyl group. The inorganic filler (C) is subjected to surface-treatment with a silane coupling agent represented by a general formula: YSiX3, wherein X represents a methoxy group or an ethoxy group, and Y represents an aliphatic alkyl group having 6 to 18 carbon atoms.

  • Patent number: 8956437
    Abstract: Articles such as filter media, which include dendrimers and/or other components, are provided. The filter media may further include a water repellant (e.g., a fluorinated species) to impart desirable properties to the media such as high water repellency. The filter media may also have a high efficiency as a function of pressure drop (i.e., high gamma values). In some embodiments, the filter media includes a fiber web which may be formed of various components such as glass fibers. The fiber web can also include additional components such as synthetic fibers, binder components, as well as other additives. The media may be incorporated into a variety of filter element products.
