INVENTORS’ CIRCLE Newest Patent Approvals Non-aerosol liquid spray device with continuous spray U.S. Patent No. 8,973,847 Easy Spray LLC Easy Spray LLC, Lake St. Louis, MO, patented a spray device that includes a piston operable within a piston chamber and coupled to a vacuum plunger operable within a vacuum chamber. A charger is operable to move the piston and the vacuum plunger in a first direction to generate a vacuum in the piston chamber and the vacuum chamber, thereby drawing liquid into the piston chamber. The vacuum in the vacuum chamber acts on the piston to pressurize the liquid in the piston chamber. A spray actuator is operable to open a spray valve, thereby causing the vacuum in the vacuum chamber to force the plunger and the piston to move opposite the first direction, and forcing the liquid in the piston chamber through a spray nozzle as a liquid spray. According to other embodiments, a spring replaces the vacuum chamber and vacuum plunger. 32 Spray October 2015 u Compressed gas aerosol composition in steel can U.S. Patent No. 8,927,474 S.C. Johnson & Son, Inc. S.C. Johnson & Son, Inc., Racine, WI, patented an aqueous compressed gas aerosol formulation in combination with a lined steel can, which may also optionally be tin plated, to provide corrosion stability, fragrance stability and color stability. An aerosol formulation of particular advantage for use is an air and/or fabric treatment formulation. The combination provides a compatibility which allows for the ability to use a broader fragrance pallet for the air and/or fabric treatment formulation which is aqueous based in major proportion. The formulation includes, in addition to an aqueous carrier, a fragrance, nonionic surfactant(s) or a blend of nonionic surfactant(s) and cationic surfactant(s), a compressed gas propellant(s), pH adjuster(s), and corrosion inhibitor(s). The formulation has a pH of about eight to less than 10. The corrosion inhibitor(s) is(are) mild in strength and used in a minor amount. Gel with Superabsorbant Polymers U.S. Patent No. 8,940,680 L’Oréal Paris L’Oréal Paris has patented a composition in the form of a gel that is comprised of water; an alkyl polyglucoside foaming surfactant having an HLB value of greater than 15 and optionally, a betaine derivative having an HLB value of greater than 15; at least one superabsorbent polymer; and an anionic surfactant.
