Title
(EN) WATER-DISPERSIBLE THERMOPLASTIC COMPOSITION AND ARTICLES THEREOF
(FR) COMPOSITION THERMOPLASTIQUE DISPERSIBLE DANS L'EAU ET ARTICLES OBTENUS AVEC CETTE COMPOSITION
Abstract
(EN)
A water-dispersible thermoplastic composition is disclosed which can be thermoformed into a variety of thin walled devices, such as tampon insertion devices and the like. The composition includes at least about 75 weight percent polyethylene oxide having a molecular weight from about 100,000 daltons to about 3 million daltons, and a synthetic thermoplastic component.
(FR)
On décrit une composition thermoplastique dispersible dans l'eau. Cette composition peut être formée à chaud pour obtenir divers dispositifs à parois minces, tels que les tampons vaginaux et similaire. La composition contient au moins 75 % en poids d'un oxyde de polyéthylène ayant un poids moléculaire allant d'environ 100.000 daltons à environ 3 millions de daltons et un composant synthétique thermoplastique.
