Color Protecting Process For Dyed Product Patents (Class 8/442)
  • Patent number: 10011931
    Abstract: A dyeing and welding process may be configured to convert a substrate into a welded substrate having at least some color imparted thereto via a dye and/or coloring agent by applying a process solvent having a dye and/or coloring agent therein to the substrate, wherein the process solvent interrupts one or more intermolecular force between one or more component in the substrate. The substrate may be configured as a natural fiber, such as cellulose, hemicelluloses, and silk. The process solvent may include a binder, such as dissolved biopolymer (e.g., cellulose). After application of a process solvent comprised of a dye and/or coloring agent, the substrate may be exposed to a second application of a process solvent comprised of a binder, which second application may occur before or after a process temperature/pressure zone, process solvent recovery zone, and/or drying zone.

The contents of the dye tub are then heated until the pores in the nylon fibers of the pantyhose open and accept the dye molecules. A color fix is then added to the dye tub along with an acid substitute for creating a strong bond between the dye molecules and the nylon fibers. A softening mix containing a cationic nylon softener and a diluted silicone softener is then applied to the pantyhose. Lastly, an aloe finish containing a silicone micro-emulsion is added to the dye tub followed by another quantity of acid substitute for creating a strong bond between the aloe finish and the nylon fibers of the pantyhose.

  • Publication number: 20080134449
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to a cosmetic process for wash-protecting the color of keratin fibers comprising applying a composition comprising, in a cosmetically acceptable medium, at least one zinc-based compound chosen from zinc-based mineral compounds and zinc-based non-nitrogenous organic compounds to keratin fibers previously dyed. Also disclosed is a cosmetic process for wash-protecting the color of dyed keratin fibers, comprising applying to the keratin fibers, after dyeing, at least one zinc-based compound chosen from zinc-based mineral compounds and zinc-based non-nitrogenous organic compounds. The present disclosure further relates to a process for dyeing keratin fibers comprising applying to the fibers at least one dye composition (A), optionally in the presence of an oxidizing agent, for period of time that is sufficient to develop the color, and applying a composition (B) comprising, in a cosmetically acceptable medium, at least one zinc-based compound as defined herein.

  • Publication number: 20080127430
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a method of applying dye and stainblocker to a substrate comprising cationically dyeable fibers which reduces or eliminates the need for subsequent reapplication of dye. The present invention solves the problem of cationic dye removal resulting from stainblocker application by providing a method wherein application of stainblocker precedes the application of dye to a substrate comprising cationically dyeable fibers. Surprisingly, the invention provides a method wherein the effectiveness of cationic dye application is improved when preceded by stainblocker application compared to stainblocker application preceded by cationic dye application. The substrate comprising cationically dyeable fibers preferably further comprises acid dyeable fibers wherein even more preferably, said cationically dyeable fibers and acid dyeable fibers are attached to a backing to form a carpet.

  • Patent number: 7101407
    Abstract: The present invention relates to sulfur dye protection systems and compositions and methods employing same, as well as processes for making sulfur dyes, especially bleach stable sulfur dyes, processes for dying textiles with sulfur dyes and textiles dyed by such processes. More particularly, the present invention relates to modifying existing dyes and/or making newly formed sulfur dyes. Even more particularly, the present invention relates to materials that can chemically or physically interact with sulfur dyes to protect the sulfur dyes from oxidation by oxidizing agents, such as bleaching agents.
