Title
(EN) REFASTENABLE STRETCHABLE FASTENER SYSTEM
(FR) SYSTEME D'ATTACHE ETIRABLE ET REUTILISABLE
Abstract
(EN)
A refastenable mechanical fastening system has built-in elasticity and stretchability. The fastening system includes a first member provided with engaging elements and a second member consisting of a stretchable elastic tab having opposite end portions. One end portion of the elastic tab is secured to one of the objects to be fastened. The free end portion of the elastic tab extends from the object. The first member of the attachment system, which consists of engaging elements, is secured to the second object to be fastened. The two objects are fastened together by extending the elastic tab to engage the engaging elements of the first member. The stretchable elastic tab provides freedom for adjustment of the spatial relation between the two secured objects. One application of this invention is to provide a flexible closure system for a disposable diaper.

Système d'attache mécanique réutilisable, à élasticité et étirabilité intégrées, comprenant un premier élément pourvu de dispositifs d'accrochage, ainsi qu'un second élément consistant en une languette élastique étirable possédant des portions d'extrémité opposées. L'une de ces portions est fixée sur un des articles à attacher. La portion d'extrémité libre de la languette élastique s'étend à partir de l'article. Le premier élément du système d'attache, lequel consiste en éléments d'accrochage, est fixé sur le second article à attacher. On attache ensemble les deux articles en étirant la languette élastique de sorte qu'elle vienne en prise avec les éléments d'accrochage du premier élément. La languette élastique étirable offre une liberté de réglage de l'espacement entre les deux articles fixés. L'une des applications de cette invention est de constituer un système de fermeture souple pour une couche jetable.
