Title
(EN) ABSORBENT ARTICLE SEALED AT WAIST BY BRIDGE FLAP
(FR) ARTICLE ABSORBANT RENDU HERMETIQUE PAR UNE BANDE DE LIAISON AU NIVEAU DE LA CEINTURE
Abstract
(EN)
A absorbent article has a front waistband portion (12), a back waistband portion (14) and an intermediate portion (16) which interconnects the front and back waistband portions. The article comprises a backsheet layer (30), and an absorbent retention portion (48) superposed on the backsheet layer. A liquid permeable topsheet layer (28) is superposed on the retention portion and connected to sandwich the retention portion between the topsheet and backsheet layers. A laterally extending 'bridge flap' (80) is configured to extend over a body-facing surface of at least one waistband portion of the article, thereby forming a transverse waste containment pocket which seals the article to the wearer's waist. The bridge flap has an elasticized, laterally extending, substantially fixed edge region (82) attached to the at least one waistband portion of the article; an elasticized, laterally extending movable edge region positioned longitudinally inboard of the substantially fixed edge region; and longitudinally extending, substantially fixed side edge regions (86) at laterally opposed side ends thereof. The bridge flap includes a selected width dimension (90) which extends laterally between the bridge flap side edge region and a selected length dimension (88) which extends longitudinally between the fixed and movable edge regions of the bridge flap. The bridge flap movable edge has a substantial extensibility, and has a selected elastic tension. The bridge flap movable edge is desirably arranged to bridge a substantial distance.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un article absorbant comprenant une portion avant de ceinture (12), une portion arrière de ceinture (14) et une portion intermédiaire (16) qui réunit les portions avant et arrière de ceinture. L'article comporte une couche envers (30), et une portion absorbante de rétention (48) superposée sur la couche envers. Une couche supérieure (28) perméable aux liquides est superposée sur la portion de rétention. La portion de rétention est prise en sandwich entre la couche supérieure et la couche envers. Une bande de liaison (80) s'étendant latéralement est configurée de manière à recouvrir une surface, faisant face au corps, d'au moins une portion de la ceinture de l'article, formant ainsi une poche transversale de rétention des déchets qui rend l'article hermétique au niveau de la ceinture du porteur. La bande de liaison a une région de bord (82) élastique et sensiblement fixe, s'étendant latéralement en étant attachée au moins à une des portions de la ceinture de l'article; une région de bord (84) élastique et mobile, s'étendant latéralement et située longitudinalement à l'intérieur par rapport à la région de bord sensiblement fixe; et des régions de bord (86) sensiblement fixes s'étendant longitudinalement aux extrémités latéralement opposées de la bande. La bande de liaison a une largeur choisie (90) qui s'étend latéralement entre la région de bord latérale de la bande de liaison et une longueur choisie (88) qui s'étend longitudinalement entre les régions fixe et mobile de la bande de liaison. Le bord mobile de la bande de liaison est très extensible et il présente une tension élastique sélectionnée. Le bord mobile de la bande de liaison est, d'une manière avantageuse, conçu pour couvrir une distance substantielle.
