A TEXTILE MATERIAL COATED WITH AN AMMONIUM DIALKYL PHOSPHATE ANTISTATIC AGENT The use of amine salts of polyethoxyalkyl phosphoric acid esters of the formula as antielectrostatic finishing agents for polyethylene terephthalate filaments and fibers has been described in German Patent specification No. 1,084,231. The amine portion of this phosphoric acid ester salt consists of a monoamine, e.g., an alkyl amine or an alkylol amine. Diethanolamine salts of mixtures of alkyl esters of pentavalent phosphorus acids or acid anhydrides, characterized by the presence of PO P- linkages, are described in U.S. Pat. No. 2,742,379 as having antistatic properties in their application to hydrophobic textile materials.

N-substituted diamines can form the cation of the quaternary ammonium salts ll of the formula:

which also have antistatic properties (see U.S. Pat. No.,

3,082,227). In these salts of the formula ll, the radical R is an aliphatic or alicyclic hydrocarbon of at least seven carbon atoms, two of the primed Rs maybe a lower alkyl but at least one is a monohydroxyalkyl of two or three carbon atoms, and Y is the anion of an inorganic acid.

There are literally thousands of organic compounds in addition to those mentioned above which possess antistatic properties and which have therefore been suggested for application to hydrophobic synthetic polymer products, especially textile materials, in order to reduce the electrostatic charging of these products as they are being processed and/or during subsequent use. It is extremely difficult, however, to find suitable antistatic agents which are fully compatible with other finishing agents such as lubricants, sizes, emulsifiers and the like. Moreover, many antistatic agents possess other proper ties which make them relatively unsatisfactory in such applications e.g., where the antistatic agent contributes to the corrosion of machinery used in processing the treated textile materials or where it is not stable or resistant to subsequent heat treatment steps. These and similar problems as well as the desirability of improving the antistatic effect must be taken into consideration in attempting to provide satisfactory finishing agents of this type.

One object of the present invention is to provide a class of organic compounds which are highly useful in a finishing or lubricating composition for textile materials, and to provide a process for treating such textile materials to achieve an improved antistatic effect.

Another object of the invention is to provide an antistatic agent which can also function as an emulsifying agent for textile lubricants and which possesses a number of desirable properties for this use or similar applications.

Still other objects and advantages of the invention are explained in greater detail hereinafter.

It has now been found, in accordance with the invention, that especially improved results can be achieved in terms of antistatic effect with a finishing agent and compositions containing the same by means of a phosphate of the formula Ill, especially when applied as a preparatory and finishing agent for fibrous or filamentary polyester and polyamide textile materials; in which formula R represents a primary n-alkyl group of five to l7 carbon atoms, i.e., an alkyl group offrom C H to C H R, and R each represent a lower alkyl radical of one to three carbon atoms;

R represents a lower alkyl radical of two to four carbon atoms; and

R represents an alkyl radical of two to 18 carbon atoms, preferably a primary n-alkyl group.

Of particular technical and commercial significance are the phosphoric acid ester amine salts which may be identified as l-lauramidopropyl-dimethylammonium-( 3 )-ethyl primary-nalkyl phosphates which have the structural formula:

in which R is alkyl and preferably the primary n-alkyl group ofabout two to 18 and preferably four to 14 carbon atoms.

Depending on the length of the alkyl chains in the cation and anion, respectively, the amine salts used in accordance with the invention are either cationically active or anionically v active, or may be both cationically and anionically active.

The effectiveness of these compounds is not limited to the improved electrostatic properties imparted to polyester and polyamide yarns, filaments or fibers and to textiles containing these materials, but also extends to other filaments and fibers so as to greatly facilitate their mechanical handling during drawing or carding operations or in knitting and weaving machinery. The amino phosphoric acid ester salts of the formulas ill or IV, when used according to the invention, thus reduce the static and sliding friction ofa wide variety of natural and synthetic fibers and also that of metal or rubber, so as to be generally useful as an antistatic agent. The finishing or antistatic agents of the invention are also extremely resistant to heat. For example, during the heat fixing or setting of synthetic thermoplastic filaments, the phosphate compounds of the invention do not cause any yellowing of the fibrous material finished with these compounds. Also, these finishing agents do not cause any alteration in the electrical and mechanical properties of the filaments during heat treatment.

The emulsifying properties of the phosphate compounds permit, inter alia, the preparation of stable emulsions of When applied to unalloyed steel components, e.g., by vaporization of a 1 percent aqueous solution on a steel plate, the amine salts according to the invention actually prevent rust formation. Thus, the dialkyl phosphates listed in table 1 below have a notable corrosion-inhibiting action. By comparison, the quaternary ammonium salts ll according to U.S. Pat. No. 3,082,227 are not too satisfactory in this respect, and in fact, the salts of strong inorganic acids as disclosed in this patent actually promote the formation of rust.

The antielectrostatic effect is particularly pronounced with the l-lauramidopropyl-dimethylammonium-( 3 )-ethyl primary-n-alkyl phosphates of the structural formula lV, especially when these amine salts form a thin surface layer on polyesters, e.g., polyethylene terephthalate, or on polyamide (nylon) yarns, filaments or fibers, including fabrics or other textile products. Those salts having R of two up to six carbon atoms, e.g., the primary nC,,H,,-, group, are fully soluble in water. With larger alkyl radicals R e.g., up to 18 carbon atoms, they can still be dispersed in water, so that the impregnation of any materials to be treated is best accomplished in an aqueous solution or dispersion.

Strips of a polycaprolactam fabric, which have been treated under controlled conditions with aqueous solutions of these phosphates, then dried and rubbed over stainless steel pins, show a distinctly lower electrostatic charging than a comparison strip of polycaprolactam fabric which has a surface film or coating of the sodium slat of the copolymer of styrene and maleic acid which is a well known antistatic agent (see example 1 below).

With medium length alkyl radicals R e.g., six to eight carbon atoms, the lauramidopropyl-dimethylammonium-dialkyl phosphates IV are soluble both in water and hydrocarbon solvents, e.g., turpentines or so-called white spirit as well as mineral oils in general, and exhibit especially good emulsifying properties because of their boundary surface activity. For example, when the ethyl primary-n-hexylphosphate V is combined with an ethoxylated oleyl alcohol VI which contains about two ethylene oxide groups per alcohol molecule, an emulsifier system is formed which permits mineral oils or similar lubricants to be emulsified in water. An optimum emulsifying action has been produced when parts by weight of the ethoxylated oleyl alcohol V] are used to 13 parts by weight of the amine salt V. With a ratio by weight of this emulsifier system to mineral oil of 23:30, a 10 percent by weight emulsion of the mineral oil in water is transparent. With increasing mineral oil content, the aqueous emulsions assume a milky cloudiness because of particle enlargement. In a comparison sample using only the ethoxylated oleyl alcohol, mineral oil and water, and in which no ammonium phosphate such as compound V is present, it is not possible to obtain a stable emulsion.

Aqueous emulsions of these components are particularly suitable for use as finishing and lubricating compositions in the processing of synthetic yarns, filaments or fibers, since they lower the friction and protect steel contact surfaces from rust formation, as well as decreasing the electrostatic charging. In addition to the use of the ammonium dialkyl phosphates Ill alone, mixtures of these compounds with other emulsifiers are also feasible. In particular, mixtures of V and VI have been found especially useful as dressings for the processing of polyester staple fibers. The addition of the ethoxylated oleyl alcohol VI to the amine phosphate salt V increases the slippability as compared to fibers dressed only with the salt V. With a composition consisting of equal parts by weight of V and VI, addition of about 0.1 percent by weight to a dried 3-denier polyethylene terephthalate fibrous material is sufficient in order to almost completely eliminate electrostatic charging during carding. By comparison, when using a commercial product which is an ethoxylated stearic acid ester, the electrostatic charging is substantially higher even after application of four times as much of the active agent (see example 3 below).

Mixtures of one part by weight of the dialkylphosphate V to about one to two parts by weight of the ethoxylated oleyl alcohol Vl also provide good finishing agents for those polyester or polyamide fibers which are processed on cards or by the converted method. Such finishing compositions reduce the static and sliding friction of the fibers both relative to one another and also to metal or rubber. This makes its possible to process these fibers satisfactorily, for example, on a Rieter converter, followed by machines which are customary in the spinning of combed yarn.

Mixtures of phosphoric acid ester amine salts of the structural formula IV and ethoxylated oleyl alcohol Vl do not cause any yellowing of polyethylene terephthalate fibers or other thermoplastic fibers after these have been set or heat treated for one hour at [50 C. Furthermore, the electrical and mechanical properties of such fibers or filaments are not modified by this heat treatment.

A comparison of the salts III of the acylated dimethylamino-3-propylamine and dialkyl phosphoric acids according to salts described in US. Pat. No. 2,742,379 shows the decided superiority of the salts Ill over the known diethanolamine salts of the cited patent, particularly as finishing agents with an antielectrostatic effect. Thus, the Hanramidopropyl-dimethylammonium-(3)-ethyl primary-n-alkyl phosphates lV, at relatively low atmospheric humidities, have a better antielectrostatic action on fabrics consisting of polyamide or polyester fibers than the compounds according to U.S. Pat. No. 2,742,379. Also, the antielectrostatic efiect of the amine salts Ill used according to the present invention on woven fabrics, e.g., consisting of polyester fibers, has been proven to be more heat resistant than that of the prior art compounds.

The tertiary amines with an acid amide group, which are required as the intermediate product for the preparation of the acylated tertiary ammonium dialkyl phosphates Ill, can be produced in accordance with the following procedure, generally by reacting higher fatty acids with dimethylaminopropylamine:

3.8 kg. (19 mols) of lauric acid and 2.54 kg. (25 mols) of dimethylamino-propylamine are heated for 1 hour at 145 C. and the mixture is boiled gently. Within another 4 hours, the temperature is slowly raised to 200 C. The excess amine is then distilled off, together with the water produced in the reaction. The last residues of the dimethylamino-propylamine can also be removed under vacuum, the pressure being slowly reduced within an hour to 13 to 15 mm. Hg. The residue of llauramidopropyl-3dimethylamide, which is similar to a grain or curd soap, melts at 33.5to 35.5 C.

The dialkyl phosphoric acids used for neutralizing this amine intermediate are obtained by methods generally well known and similar to that given in German Patent specification No. 1,084,231 for the production of polyethoxy ethyl phosphoric acids. For neutralization purposes, i.e., to produce the amine salt [I], equimolar quantities of amine and dialkyl phosphoric acid are stirred together at 50 to 60 C. for about 15 minutes.

The invention is further illustrated but not limited by the following examples. All parts and percentages are by weight unless otherwise indicated.

EXAMPLE I Strips measuring 5X85 cm. of a polycaprolactam woven fabric are dipped at room temperature into various baths of an 0.5 percent aqueous solution of a number of the different I- lauramido-propyl-dimethylammonium-(3)-ethyl primary-nalkyl phosphates IV (see table I). The amine salts which are used differ only in the length of the alkyl radical R in the phosphate anion. The fabric strips are then wrung out until they contain about percent moisture, dried for 20 hours in air and rubbed on stainless steel pins. The rubbing movement can be effected using a suitable mechanical device, always under the same mechanical conditions. With an atmosphere of 44 percent relative humidity at 23 C., the maximum charges listed in table 1 are measured with a Feldmuhle instrument, with a spacing being provided between the fabric and the measuring head ofthe instrument of 30 mm.

In addition to the maximum charges, table 1 also gives the charges prior to the rubbing operation, designated as precharge, and the discharge times. In those cases where the electrostatic charge was low, the discharge was generally so quick that the field decay could not be accurately controlled with the measuring arrangement being used. Such a rapid field decay is given in all of the tables 1, 2, 4, 5, and 6 below as a time reading of l second, i.e., less than I second. With a slower field decay which can be clearly measured, the discharge times are set forth as being measured from the termination of the rubbing movement, at which time it has reached the maximum charge, until there has been a discharge to +0.5 or 0.5 kv./m. or to the indicated value.

The determination of the applied amounts of the antistatic agent is effected by weighing the untreated and impregnated fabric strips, and the amount is set forth as percentage by weight with reference to the dry fabric. The Copolymer A is the sodium salt of the copolymer of styrene and maleic acid which is a readily available commercial product normally used as an antistatic agent for polyamides, and which is used for a comparison of the antielectrostatic effects. The discharge of the strips of polycaprolactam fabric, finished with the ammonium dialkyl phosphates IV, takes place substantially more quickly than with the substrate treated with the sodium salt of the copolymer.

TABLE 1 Maximum charging and discharge capacity of strips of polycaprolactam fabric, impregnated with the salts IV of lauramidopropyl-dimethylamine-(3) and ethyl primary-nalkyl phosphoric acids, and with Copolymer A (the sodium salt of the copolymer of styrene and maleic acid) as a comparison substance:

finishing agent: C H A R G 1 N G lnstead of strips of polycaprolactam fabric as used in example l, fabric strips of polyethylene terephthalate fibers were examined in the same way as in example 1. The results are given in table 2. Serving as a comparison product was the stearamidopropyl-dimethyl-B-hydroxyethylammonium-(3)- phosphate Vll, which is known and is also obtainable commercially as an antistatic agent.

As will be seen from table 2, the fabric strips treated with the dialkyl phosphates IV become chargedto a substantially smaller degree than those finished with the comparison substance. There is no difference with regards to the speed of the discharge.

TABLE 2 Maximum charging and discharging capacity of fabric strips of polyethylene terephthalate fibers, impregnated with the salts IV of l-lauramidopropyl-dimethylamine-(3) and ethyl primary-n-alkyl phosphoric acids, and the quaternary ammonium phosphate Vll as a comparison substance, respectively:

A mixture which proved suitable for use as a dressing or finishing agent for polyethylene terephthalate fibers is a mixture of equal parts by weight of l-lauramidopropyldimethylammonium-(3)-ethyl primary-n-hexyl phosphate V and an oleyl alcohol which has been etherified with 2 mols ethylene oxide Vl. Polyethylene terephthalate fibers (3.0 denier; staple length 60 mm.) are dressed for 30 seconds at 70 C. in aqueous solutions containing dissolved therein the mixture defined above. The bath ratio is 1:20, and the bath concentrations which are used are given in table 3. After centrifuging to about 7 percent absorption of the bath solution, the fibers are dried for 15 minutes at C. with air circulation and conditioned for 24 hours in an atmosphere of air maintained at 54 to 58 percent relative humidity and a temperature of 22 to 24 C. A commercially available finishing agent for polyester fibers, based on an ethoxylated stearic acid ester is used as the comparison substance. The finished fibrous flocks are carded and the electrostatic charges on the resulting nonwoven fiber fleece are measured with a Feldmuhle instrument under the same conditions. The results are given in table 3, together with the bath concentrations and the electrical resistivities measured on the fibrous flocks at 65 percent relative humidity and 20 C. With the exception of the comparison sample, the capacity of the fibers for carding is quite suitable in all three cases. It is known that electrostatic charges below about 10,000 v./m. represent a limiting value for this purpose. With the comparison example, a bath concentration of more than 6 percent had to be used in order to produce an adequate antielectrostatic effect. However, the larger application of such a textile auxiliary has been found from experience to impair the working properties of the fibers because the static friction on metal and rubber is too great.

TABLE 3 Electrical resistivities of finished polyethylene terephthalate fibrous flocks and electrostatic charges, measured during carding of the nonwoven fibrous fleece material:

Comparison tests were made in these examples with the antielectrostatic finishing agents according to the invention and U.S. Pat. No. 2,742,379.

The phosphoric acid ester amine salts 111 according to the invention were prepared as set forth herein, and the comparison products were obtained according to U.S. Pat. No. 2,742,379.

An examination of the antistatic effects of the preparations under different air humidity conditions was carried out.

For the investigation of the antistatic effects, fabric strips of polyethylene terephthalate fibers (example 4) and polycaprolactum fibers (example 5) were impregnated by the method described in example 1 with the l-lauramidopropyl-diemthylammonium-(3)-ethyl primary-n-alkyl phosphates 1V and, after drying in air, they were conditioned for 24 hours in air:

at 20 C. and 30 percent relative humidity, and

at 20 C. and 65 percent relative humidity.

The radical R in the cation of the dialkylphosphate IV was selected as n-hexyl-(l), n-octyl-(l) and n-decyl-( l respectively, in order to test three different compounds of the invention.

The electrostatic charge was produced, always under the same mechanical conditions, by rubbing on stainless steel pins, and the same procedure was used for estimating the antistatic efficiency as in examples 1 and 2. This charge was measured with a Feldmuhle measuring instrument under the atmospheric conditions indicated, the distance between the fabric and measuring head being 30 mm.

The substances described in examples I, ii and III of US. Pat. No. 2,742,379 (hereinafter referredto as Comparison Products I, ii, and Ill) were also tested in the same way for fabrics finished with the amine salts lV acquire a decidedly lower electrostatic charge than the fabric strips treated with the comparison products I, ii, and ill. As shown in tables 4 and 5, the improvement in the antistatic effectiveness thus their antistatic effectiveness.
