  • Patent number: 8911508
    Abstract: The present invention discloses a modifier for modifying a polyester fiber as well as a preparation method and application of the same. The modifier contains ethylene glycol, two-hydroxy-end polyether, dimethyl terephthalate, two-polyether-end modified organosilicon and a metal acetate catalyst. A two-step continuous production process is adopted. The first step is esterification; that is, ethylene glycol, two-hydroxy-end polyether, dimethyl terephthalate, and two-polyether-end organosilicon are added into a reactor, and have an esterification reaction in the presence of the catalyst. In the second step, the materials produced by the esterification are transported to a polymerizer, and have a polymerization reaction under the conditions of high temperature, vacuum and catalyst, producing the high molecular weight polyester/polyether/organosilicon terpolymer with a molecular weight of 1000˜50000 as the desired modifier.

  • Patent number: 8334021
    Abstract: The present invention provides methods for reducing the level of free aldehydes in coatings for flexible substrates, such as tanned leather, and substantially aldehyde free substrates. The methods comprise applying to the substrate a composition of one or more aqueous emulsion or suspension composition of an acrylic polymer or silicon containing polymer that is made from, or contains one or more lower alkyl alcohol or degrades on storage or in use to form such an alcohol, and one or more water-insoluble to slightly water soluble aldehyde scavenger compound, followed by drying or curing the applied composition to form a coating. In addition, the methods provide enhanced aldehyde scrubbing, especially for acetaldehyde, by applying to a substrate an aqueous acrylic polymer or silicon containing polymer emulsion or suspension comprising a aldehyde scavenger compound that is substantially deprotonated, i.e. by raising the pH composition to 5.5 or higher.
