Abstract of  CA 2665628  (A1)

The present disclosure is directed to cellulosic textiles treated with h- PEI derivatives, such derivatives possessing the general structure shown bel ow: (R)x - h-PEI - (A)y where R is a non-hyperbranched hydrocarbon group (fo r example, such as alkyl, alkenyl, arylalkyl, and arylalkenyl groups, where the number of carbon atoms in the linear portion of the hydrocarbon is betwe en 5 and 30 carbon atoms), where x is a number from 1 to about 10,000 (depen ding on the Mn of the h-PEI), where h-PEI is a hyperbranched polyethyleneimi ne, where A is a small organic "capping" compound having from 1 to 4 carbon atoms, where y is a number from 0 to 10,000, and wherein R is present in an approximate amount of between about 20% and about 75% by weight of the h-PEI derviative. The chemical treatment imparts durable colorfastness, softness, wrinkle resistance, and reduced drying time to substrates treated therewith.
