Abstract

New fully saturated, long chain, linear primary alcohols are disclosed. Previously available up to molecular weight values (Mn) of approximately 700 daltons, the new products extend the range to approximately 2000 daltons. The new products are produced via controlled polymerization to yield products with consistent alcohol functionality of about 80% through the entire molecular weight range with a relatively narrow polydispersity of approximately 1.10. The products have a low viscosity while molten, and form highly crystalline, hard solid particles. The products can be micronized to particles as small as six microns.

Long Chain Primary Alcohols for Personal Care, Hot Melt Adhesives, Candles, Ceramics and Castings, Phase Change Materials and Thermostat, and Polish Applications

New fully saturated, long chain, linear primary alcohols are disclosed.  Previously available up to molecular weight values (Mn) of approximately 700 daltons, the new products extend the range to approximately 2000 daltons.  The new products are produced via controlled polymerization to yield products with consistent alcohol functionality of about 80% through the entire molecular weight range with a relatively narrow polydispersity of approximately 1.10.  The products have a low viscosity while molten, and form highly crystalline, hard solid particles.  The products can be micronized to particles as small as six microns.

The new products have the following application benefits:

·         As additives for Antiperspirants and Deodorants (AP/D).  The new primary alcohols can be used to improve dimensional stability of the AP/D formulation.  The new primary alcohols efficiently bind cosmetic oils to provide the level of hardness desired in the formulation and provides extended shelf life stability.  The new primary alcohols can be used at levels up to 25% by weight in the formulation.

·         As additives for Skin Care products.  The new primary alcohols can be used to modify the performance of skin care formulations.  The new primary alcohols can also be reduced to fine particles and dispersed in formulations to provide skin exfoliation.  The products can also be used to control the rheology of the formulation to deliver improved properties.  The new primary alcohols can be used at levels up to 5% by weight in the skin care formulation.

·         As additives for Sun Care products.  The new primary alcohols can be used to modify the performance of sun care formulations.  The products can be used to control the rheology of the formulation to deliver improved SPF properties.  The new primary alcohols can be used at levels up to 5% by weight in the skin care formulation.

·         As additives for Color Cosmetics.  The new primary alcohols can be used to improve dimensional stability of color cosmetic stick formulations.  The new primary alcohols efficiently bind cosmetic oils to provide the level of hardness desired in the formulation and provides extended shelf life stability.   The new primary alcohols can enhance stability of the formulation and effectively disperse pigments.  The refractive index of the new primary alcohols can also act in combination with other ingredients to improve gloss.  The new primary alcohols can be used at levels up to 25% by weight in the formulation.

·         As a Component of Hot Melt Adhesives to improve the compatibility with more polar resins, such as high VA content EVA or EAA, and improve adhesive strength of the applied adhesive.  The new polymers can also control the set times of the adhesive through the narrow melt distribution.  The new product can be used...
