  • Patent number: 11964032
    Abstract: Disclosed by the present invention are an aqueous polyurethane functional mask substrate and an application thereof. Two kinds of water-based polyurethane dispersions are used as the main components of the mask substrate. The transdermal penetration and absorption of functional ingredients such as whitening, moisturizing and anti-aging ingredients in facial mask products are promoted by means of the special cross-linked structures of polyurethane films. During use, a mask is evenly applied to the face; and after the mask dries, the entire mask may be removed directly or removed after being moistened using water. The mask substrate according to the present invention is also applicable to body masks such as a hand mask, a neck mask and a back mask.

  • Patent number: 11041039
    Abstract: In one or more embodiments, the present invention provides a novel approach to the addition of plasticizers for softening TPUs, i.e., lowering the durometer and the melt viscosity. This approach involves incorporating bonded sulfonate groups with quaternary ammonium counterions into the TPU. In one or more embodiments of the present invention, the softening of TPU is achieved by incorporating an ionic diol, such as N,N-bis (2-hydroxyethyl)-2-aminoethane-sulfonic acid (BES), coupled with various bulky alkyl ammonium cations, during the chain extension step of the TPU synthesis. It is believed that that steric hindrance of the bulky quaternary ammonium groups weakens the dipole-dipole interactions of the sulfonate groups and/or lowers the crystallinity of the hard block, thereby creating additional free volume that softens the polymer and lowers the melt viscosity.
