Title (EN) ABSORBENT ARTICLE HAVING A CELLULOSIC TRANSFER LAYER
(FR) ARTICLE ABSORBANT A COUCHE DE TRANSFERT CELLULOSIQUE
Abstract:
(EN) An absorbent article having a transfer layer is disclosed. The transfer layer is positioned between the cover and absorbent and has a mean free path ranging from about 50 microns to about 200 microns. In a preferred embodiment the transfer layer is composed of substantially a cellulosic material. Advantageously, the transfer layer is effective in distributing both the fluid-like and viscous constituents of body fluids such as menses permitting greater utilization of the absorbent capacity of the absorbent article.
(FR) Article absorbant comprenant une couche de transfert qui est positionnée entre la couche protectrice et l'absorbant, le parcours libre moyen de cette couche de transfert se situant entre environ 50 et environ 200 microns. Dans une forme de réalisation préférée la couche de transfert est constituée principalement d'une matière cellulosique. La couche de transfert se caractérise par sa grande efficacité à distribuer les constituants visqueux et ceux de type fluide des fluides biologiques tels que les règles, ceci assurant une meilleure utilisation de la capacité d'absorption de l'article absorbant.
