US Patent No. 10,597,617 B2
(Russell B. Wortley, Michael E. Klinkhammer, John R. Wietfeldt, Francis J. Randall); SC Johnson
has patented a gel cleaning composition for hard surfaces. The composition contains adhesion promoter, which includes a polyalkoxy substituted compound having 25 to 45 ethoxy groups; nonionic surfactant, which can serve all or in part as the at least one adhesion promoter; and a blend of non-ethoxylated linear primary alcohols wherein each alcohol of the non-ethoxylated blend includes a carbon chain containing 9 to 17 carbons, or an ethoxylated blend of linear primary alcohols wherein each alcohol of said ethoxylated blend includes a carbon chain containing 9 to 17 carbons. The gel composition has a transport rate factor of less than about 55 seconds and a gel temperature of 50-80°C. The composition, which has an adhesion time of greater than about 8 hours, is structured to self-adhere to a hard surface and transport along the hard surface in a 360° extended area outward from an area of initial product application.
