Title
(EN) ABSORBENT ARTICLE WITH ELASTICIZED SIDE PANELS CONNECTED BY A BRIDGE MEMBER
(FR) ARTICLE ABSORBANT AVEC DES PANNEAUX LATERAUX ELASTIQUES, RELIES PAR UN ELEMENT DE LIAISON
Abstract
(EN)
An article is configured with a front section (12), a rear waistband section (14), and an intermediate section (16) which interconnects the front and rear waistband sections. The article includes a backsheet layer (30) having a laterally extending width and a longitudinally extending length. A liquid permeable topsheet layer (28) is superposed on the backsheet layer, and the topsheet layer has a laterally extending width and a longitudinally extending length. An absorbent body (32) is located between the backsheet layer and the topsheet layer. An elasticized side panel (56) is connected to the article at each laterally opposed end region (72, 74) of at least one of the front and rear waistband sections. The side panels are constructed to be elastically stretchable at least along a lateral, cross direction of the article. A bridge member (40), which is separate from the backsheet and topsheet layers, extends laterally to interconnect between the elasticized side panels and to maintain a desired lateral separation and alignment between the side panels. At least a portion of the bridge member is arranged in an overlapping relation with a longitudinal end section (60) of the absorbent body, and is connected to at least one of the backsheet and topsheet layers. A fastening means (36) is provided for securing the article on a wearer. The fastening means connect to laterally distal end regions (76, 78) of the side panels.
(FR)
Un article est réalisé avec une section avant (12) de ceinture, une section arrière (14) de ceinture et une section intermédiaire (16) qui relie les sections avant et arrière. De ceinture. L'article comprend une couche de support (30) ayant une largeur s'étendant latéralement et une longueur s'étendant longitudinalement. Une couche supérieure (28) perméable aux liquides est superposée sur la couche de support et la couche supérieure a une largeur s'étendant latéralement et une longueur s'étendant longitudinalement. Un corps absorbant (32) est disposé entre la couche de support et la couche supérieure. Un panneau élastique latéral (56) est relié à l'article par chacune des deux régions d'extrémité opposées latéralement (72, 74) d'au moins une des sections avant et arrière de la ceinture. Les panneaux latéraux sont réalisés pour être élastiques et pouvoir s'étirer au moins suivant une direction transversale, latérale, de l'article. Un élément de liaison (40) qui ne fait pas partie de la couche de support ou de la couche supérieure, est disposé latéralement pour relier les panneaux latéraux élastiques et pour maintenir la séparation latérale souhaitée et l'alignement souhaité des panneaux latéraux. Au moins une portion de l'élément de liaison est disposée de façon à chevaucher une section longitudinale d'extrémité (60) du corps absorbant et elle est reliée à la couche supérieure et/ou à la couche de support. On prévoit un moyen de fixation (36) pour immobiliser l'article sur le porteur. Le moyen de fixation relie les régions d'extrémité latéralement distales (76, 78) des panneaux latéraux.
