Title
(EN) FLEXIBLE ABSORBENT ARTICLE
(FR) ARTICLE ABSORBANT FLEXIBLE
Abstract
(EN)
An absorbent article includes a moisture barrier formed of a formable, liquid impermeable material. The moisture barrier defines a basin having a width dimension, a length dimension greater than the width dimension, and a volume. The basin includes a floor having corrugations formed therein parallel to the width dimension. The absorbent article also includes an absorbent assembly disposed within the basin and a liner formed of a liquid permeable material bonded to the moisture barrier and sandwiching the absorbent assembly therebetween. The corrugations permit the absorbent article to bend inwardly, for example to conform to the shape of the wearer, without bunching the moisture barrier along the portions facing the wearer and without substantially stretching or deforming the floor of the moisture barrier.
(FR)
Cette invention se rapporte à un article absorbant qui comprend une barrière contre l'humidité formée d'une matière imperméable aux liquides, formable. Cette barrière contre l'humidité forme une poche ayant une certaine largeur, une longueur supérieure à cette largeur, ainsi qu'un volume. Cette poche comporte un fond dans lequel sont formées des ondulations, lesquelles sont orientées dans le sens de la largeur. Cet article absorbant comprend également une unité absorbante contenue dans ladite poche ainsi qu'un garnissage formé d'une matière perméable aux liquides collée à la barrière contre l'humidité et prenant l'unité absorbante en sandwich entre elles. Lesdites ondulations permettent à l'article absorbant de se plier vers l'intérieur, par exemple pour épouser la forme du corps de l'utilisateur, sans que la barrière contre l'humidité ne se relève le long des parties situées face au corps de l'utilisateur, et sans que le fond de la barrière contre l'humidité ne s'étire ou ne se déforme de façon sensible.
