Title
(EN) ABSORBENT STRUCTURE FOR LIQUID DISTRIBUTION
(FR) STRUCTURE ABSORBANTE PERMETTANT UNE DISTRIBUTION DU LIQUIDE
Abstract
(EN)
Disclosed is an absorbent structure comprising wettable cellulosic fibers, wherein the absorbent structure exhibits desired liquid transport properties. In one embodiment of the present invention, an absorbent structure comprises wettable cellulosic fibers, wherein the absorbent structure exhibits a Vertical Liquid Flux rate value at a height of about 15 centimeters of at least about 0.002 grams of liquid per minute per gram per square meter of the absorbent structure per inch of cross-sectional width of the absorbent structure (g/(min*gsm*inch)). The absorbent structure is suitable for use in disposable absorbent products.
(FR)
L'invention concerne une structure absorbante comprenant des fibres cellulosiques mouillables, ladite structure absorbante ayant des propriétés de transport souhaitables pour les liquides. Dans une forme d'exécution de l'invention, une structure absorbante comprend des fibres cellulosiques mouillables telles que la structure absorbante présente un flux vertical de liquide à une hauteur de 15 centimètres égal au moins à 0,002 grammes environ de liquide par minute par gramme par mètre carré de structure absorbante par pouce de largeur transversale de structure absorbante (g/min*gmc*pouce). La structure absorbante convient bien à la réalisation de produits absorbants à usage unique.
