    Description

    FIELD OF THE INVENTION



    [0001] The present invention relates to a hard surface treatment composition. In particular, the composition comprises both amphoteric acrylic copolymer and amphoteric modified polysaccharide. It was surprisingly found that such composition was capable of delivering good fast-drying performance without noticeable residue/stain on the hard surface.

    BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION



    [0002] Hard surface treatment compositions have been widely employed for a long time to keep the household appliances clean and shine. The hard surface treatment compositions typically contain a variety of ingredients which may provide an optimal cleaning experience to the user. For example, fast-drying polymers may be added into hard surface treatment compositions to provide resistance to hard water, easy clean after first time use with repeated use, and etcetera.

    [0003] US2013/157921 is directed to the removal of acidic cleanser that can be quickly rinsed off and discloses an acidic hard surface treatment composition comprising a copolymer having at least one quaternized monomer ("acrylamidopropyl trimethylammonium chloride/sodium acrylate/ethyl acrylate copolymer") and a microbially derived polysaccharide, the weight ratio of the copolymer to the modified polysaccharide being in the range of 1.5:1 to 2:1.
    However, there may be some problem when incorporated some fast-drying polymer, such as amphoteric acrylic copolymer, into a hard surface treatment composition. There may be undesirable residue/stain on the treated hard surface perhaps due to the addition of the fast-drying polymer.

    [0004] Therefore, we recognized that there is a need to develop a way to include the fast-drying polymer into the hard surface treatment composition without generation of residue/stains on the treated hard surface. It was surprisingly found that by including amphoteric acrylic copolymer and amphoteric modified polysaccharide in a weight ratio of 0.75:1 to 3:1, the hard surface treatment composition is capable of providing good fast-drying performance, without generation of residue/stain on the treated hard surface.

    SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION



    [0005] In a first aspect, the present invention is directed to a hard surface treatment composition according to claim 1, comprising amphoteric acrylic copolymer and amphoteric modified polysaccharide, wherein the weight ratio of the amphoteric acrylic copolymer to the amphoteric modified polysaccharide is from 0.75:1 to 3:1 and the amphoteric acrylic copolymer is different from the amphoteric modified polysaccharide.

    [0006] In a second aspect, the present invention is directed to a method according to claim 11, for providing surface shine, fast drying, easy secondary cleaning, long-lasting cleaning or a combination thereof comprising a step of contacting the hard surface with a composition of the present invention.

    [0007] In a third aspect, the present invention is directed to use according to claim 12, of the composition of the present invention for surface shine, fast drying, easy secondary cleaning, long-lasting cleaning or a combination thereof.

    [0045] A series of samples were prepared according to Table 1.

    Example 2



    [0046] This example demonstrates the performance of fast-drying and residue reduction.

    [0047] Black glazed ceramic tiles (15cmx15cm) were pre-washed and dried, then placed in a 3 x 3 grid. 4 g of samples was placed in a clockwise circle on the tile grid. Wet cloth (4 times weight of initial dry cloth) was immediately utilized to wipe in zig path on tile grid in one rinse cycle. Then the rinsing cycle was repeated twice by changing the dampen cloth in each rinse cycle. The centered tile was taken out for further evaluation of performance of residue and fast-drying.

    [0048] The residue was carefully observed under a spotlight and/or human naked eye. The fast-drying performance was also evaluated. The tiles were placed with a tilting angle of 60° and then flushed by tap water with a flow rate of about 60L/hours for 10 seconds. The performance of fast-drying and residue reduction for each samples were summarized in table 2.
    Table 2
    SamplesItem
    ResidueFast-drying
    A A large number of opaque spots/streaks can be observed Water film flowed away in 7-8 seconds, no water droplets left on the surface.
    B A number of translucent/opaque spots can be found Water film flowed away in 5-6 seconds, no water droplets left on the surface.
    1 Streak free and no residue can be noticed by naked eye Water film flowed away in 7-8 seconds, no water droplets left on the surface.
    2 Streak free and no residue can be noticed by naked eye Water film flowed away in 7-8 seconds, no water droplets left on the surface.
    C Streak free and no residue can be noticed by naked eye Water film flowed away in 15-20 seconds, but quite a few water droplets left on the surface
    D Shiny and no residue can be noticed under spot light Continuous water film retained on the whole surface. It took more than 1 min to dry.
    E Shiny and no residue can be noticed under spot light Continuous water film retained on the whole surface. It took more than 1 min to dry.


    [0049] Table 2 shows the results for fast-drying and residue of the samples. It was surprisingly found that compositions of the present invention were capable of providing good fast-drying without generating noticeable residue/stain on the hard surface. It was also surprisingly found that the tile treated by sample 2 is streak-free even under spotlight. In contrast, a number of spots can be found in the tile treated by sample 1 under spotlight.
