Title (EN) OVERLAPPED-STYLE ABSORBENT CORE STRUCTURE COMPRISING MULTIPLE STORAGE AND ACQUISITION CELLS
(FR) STRUCTURE CENTRALE ABSORBANTE A CELLULES DE STOCKAGE ET D'ACQUISITION MULTIPLES SE CHEVAUCHANT
Abstract: front page image
(EN)The present invention provides an absorbent core structure comprising storage cells (36) and acquisition cells (40) that is useful, for example, for disposable absorbent garments. Within the storage cells (36) of the absorbent core structure is disposed a quantity of super-absorbent material (34). The acquisition cells (40) are devoid of super-absorbent material (34) or other materials that would impede the movement of liquid therethrough and are preferably open. The acquisition cells (40) can thus function as channels that allow liquids to be freely distributed within the absorbent core structure by mass flow and/or capillary action, thus helping to prevent gel blocking.
(FR)Structure centrale absorbante qui comporte des cellules de stockage (36) et des cellules d'acquisition (40), utile, par exemple, pour des articles absorbants jetables. Une certaine quantité de matériau super-absorbant (34) est placé à l'intérieur des cellules de stockage (36) de la structure centrale absorbante. Les cellules d'acquisition (40) sont exemptes de matériau super-absorbant (34) ou d'autres matériaux qui entraveraient le mouvement de liquide à travers lesdites cellules et sont de préférence ouvertes. Les cellules d'acquisition (40) peuvent fonctionner comme canaux permettant aux liquides de se répartir librement dans la structure centrale absorbante par action de flux massique et/ou capillaire, ce qui contribue à empêcher le blocage par formation de gel.
