  • Patent number: 10407607
    Abstract: Solid free-flowing powdered drilling fluid additives compositions having desirable emulsifying, wetting and other performance characteristics are described. Their method of preparation and their use in oil-based drilling fluid compositions are described. The manufacturing process comprises of contacting (spraying or mixing) different types of liquid invert emulsion additives individually at elevated temperature with a blend of inert fillers in specific proportions and of particular particle size in a blender for a specified time. The solid powdered additives thus obtained are controlled pulverized to obtain the final particle size which does not alter the performance of each individual additive. The solid invert emulsion additives obtained are added to drilling fluid compositions yielding drilling muds with improved performance.

  • Patent number: 10028525
    Abstract: A process for reducing the permeability of a paper wrapper used in the construction of a smoking article is disclosed. The paper wrapper is treated with a film-forming composition that forms treated discrete areas on the wrapper. The treated discrete areas have a permeability within a predetermined range sufficient to reduce the ignition proclivity properties of a smoking article made with the wrapper. In accordance with the present invention, the film-forming composition contains a film-forming material. The film-forming material has a relatively low viscosity. In this manner, the film-forming composition can have a relatively high solids content and still be applied to the wrapper using conventional techniques, such as by using a gravure printer.

  • Patent number: 7943561
    Abstract: A liquid hand cleansing composition which has the ability to remove stubborn soils such as ink, grease, paint and the like. The composition is also able to hold water insoluble particles in suspension without separation or sedimentation because of cooperation between a special suspension system and a surfactant system. Additionally, the composition remains homogenous and viscosity stabilized even in the presence of relatively large quantities of solvent such as d-limonene.

  • Patent number: 7939479
    Abstract: A lightweight, flowable, dry powder plant-based absorbent hand cleaner and method of manufacturing the hand cleaner are disclosed. The composition may include ground corn cobs particles of a selected size, one or more lathering surfactants, and one or more conditioning components. The composition may be mixed into a slurry and dried by a non-spray drying process. The user's hands may be scrubbed together, forming an abrasive agglomeration which removes/absorbs and absorbs the dirt, oil, grease and other foreign material from the hands, then the hands are rinsed with water.

  • Patent number: 7871969
    Abstract: A personal cleansing composition in solid or bar form which is mild to the skin and very effective in removing dirt and grime from the body, particularly the hands. Importantly, such soap bars do not have a noticeable abrasive feel when in contact with the skin. Another feature is that the bar exhibits a so called “drag effect” when the soap bar is used for washing.
