Title (EN) DISPOSABLE LIQUID-ABSORBENT ARTICLE
(FR) ARTICLE ABSORBANT JETABLE
Abstract:
(EN) Disposable liquid-absorbent article, such as a diaper (10), an incontinence guard, a sanitary napkin or the like. When in use, the liquid-absorbent article according to the invention is imparted a highly efficient collecting shape. This is achieved by means of pre-stressed, curved elastic members (23) which extend with at least one essentially continuously curved portion (24, 25) across at least one region of the absorbent body (12) of the article. When bending of the article is initiated by the user, the elastic members exert tensile forces which deform the article in order to form, in relation to the plane of the article, a transverse basin wall along the curved elastic portions. On the side of at least one curved portion of an elastic member against which said tensile forces are acting, the article is designed with a stiffer portion than on the other side of said curved portion.
(FR) Article absorbant jetable, tel que couche (10), protection en cas d'incontinence, serviette hygiénique ou autre. Lorsqu'il est utilisé, l'article absorbant selon l'invention prend une forme qui rend la rétention très efficace. Ce résultat est obtenu par des éléments élastiques courbes, précontraints (23) qui s'étendent sur au moins une région du corps absorbant (12) de l'article avec au moins une partie continûment courbe (24, 25). Lorsque l'utilisateur incurve l'article, les éléments élastiques exercent des forces de tension qui déforment l'article pour former, par rapport au plan de l'article, une barrière transversale le long des parties élastiques courbes. Sur le côté d'au moins une partie courbe d'un élément élastique sur lequel agissent ces forces de tension, l'article comporte une partie plus rigide que sur l'autre côté de la partie courbe mentionnée.
