Patent for Sale:Water Soluble and Dissolvable Tape or Blanket Filled with Paint Remover
The stripper filled tape/blanket is made with PVOH, a water soluble film (much the same as the new soluble plastic film you find on a dishwasher soap tablets or the new laundry soap ‘PODS’).
Benefits and advantages of the Invention:
1.The tape or blanket acts as a vapor barrier thus eliminating evaporation of active stripper ingredients. This allows single applications to achieve what only many applications of stripper could have achieved otherwise. Therefore, increasing efficiency greatly, and saving money.
2.The tape application is fast, simplifies delivery, and alleviates spraying, rolling or brushing. It also maintains uniform thickness of stripper being used. This Invention opens up many fields of application for strippers to be used which were previously impossible.
3.Reduces the risk of the user coming in dangerous contact with the stripper.
Selling or Licensing into What Target Market
Who would purchase this technology? Stripper Manufacturers, Paint Companies, Marketing Groups, DOT, Hardware, Tool, Aviation Renovation, Automotive Renovation, as well as, the Swimming Pool Industry. In addition, I have developed a completely new approach to be used in the Retail market which has not been exposed yet. Additional applications are currently being developed, and will be announced in the near future.
Primary Application of the Technology
The Problem Solved by the Technology
For Graffiti; in the industry of removing graffiti many caustic, volatile products are used, these products evaporate quickly resulting in the reapplication as well as serious damage to the substrate. The stripper tape is very user friendly, it is completely contained in the film package, eliminating evaporation along with reducing the need for additional applications. The stripper tape is MUCH safer to use (no splattering during applications) and when used with the "safe formula strippers" easy on the substrate.
How the Technology Solves the Problem
In the state of North Carolina alone, approximately 3 to 4 million feet of painted road lines are removed each year. There are only 3 methods currently used, all of which damage the asphalt: grinding, high pressure water blasting, and sandblasting. Paint strippers have been used to remove road lines in the past, however, problems arise because the road surface is typically very warm which causes the stripper to evaporate before it has a chance to dissolve the paint. The stripper tape is made with a protective film, "PVOH", which stops evaporation, allowing time for the stripper to destroy the painted line since the stripper remains sealed in the film. When ready, you simply wash it away. This process costs at least half that of the three previously mentioned processes therefore saving significant dollars. Additionally, there are virtually no adverse marks left on the pavement. This Technology will allow Stripper manufacturers to sell in markets that previously had little success or simply were untouchable.

Frequently Asked Questions
Why is water the only solvent that dissolves the Tape/Blanket? - This is because the PVOH film or the "plastic looking packaging" is a Phenol Base material (Nick Name "Warm Solid Water") it does not Dissolve with traditional solvents like Paint thinner, Lacquer Thinner, Acetone, Gasoline, Dichloroethane, Diesel Fuel, Alcohol, NMP, MEK, DBE's, etc... It is Simply safe, and dissolves with the universal solvent - Water (H20). What are the applications? - Anywhere Paint Stripper/Remover is used and more. What types of paint removers does the tape/Blanket contain inside the film? - It is being produced with the newer Biodegradable "Safe DBE" Type strippers, as well as, Methylene Chloride, Potassium Hydroxide Base and Benzyl Alcohol.

Class 134: Cleaning And Liquid Contact With Solids
Cleaning, i.e., the separation or removal of adherent dirt, scale, tarnish, impurities or any other foreign or undesired matter from solid materials or objects whether or not the resultant separated ingredients are recovered in whole or in part for subsequent use. Cleaning may be performed by, or may involve as a part thereof, contacting solids with liquids. The contacting of solids with liquids may be for purposes other than cleaning.Subclass 21: Including use of vacuum, suction, or inert atmosphere
