Title (EN) UNSUBSTITUTED AND POLYMERIC LEUCO COLORANTS FOR COLORING CONSUMER PRODUCTS
(FR) COLORANTS LEUCO NON SUBSTITUÉS ET POLYMÈRES UTILISABLES POUR COLORER DES PRODUITS DE CONSOMMATION
Abstract: front page image
(EN)This invention relates to unsubstituted and polymeric leuco colorants for use as consumer product additives to indicate a product function by color change, to make attractive or distinctive visual effects, or to provide latent or delayed color generation. The colorants may be present in a stable, colorless state and may be transformed to an intense colored state upon exposure to certain physical or chemical changes. Alternatively, the colorants may be transformed from one color to another color upon exposure to certain physical or chemical changes. The colored form of the unsubstituted or polymeric leuco colorant may be transient, since the colorant can revert back to its colorless form or its original color after the physical or chemical activation has been removed or changed. Polymeric leuco colorants are typically comprised of at least two components: at least one leuco chromophore component and at least one polymeric component.
(FR)L'invention porte sur des colorants leuco non substitués et polymères utilisables comme additifs de produits de consommation pour en indiquer certaines fonctions par des variations de couleur et produire des effets visuels attirants ou distincts de couleurs de manière latente ou retardée. Les colorants peuvent se présenter dans un état stable et incolore et passer dans un état de coloration intense lorsqu'exposés à certains changements physiques ou chimiques, ou passer d'une couleur à une autre lorsqu'exposés à certains changements physiques ou chimiques, ou encore prendre des états colorés transitoires et revenir à l'état incolore original après cessation ou modification des activations physiques ou chimiques. Lesdits colorants comprennent au moins deux composants: au moins un chromophore leuco, et au moins un polymère.
