Title (EN) ELASTIC STRAP FASTENING SYSTEM WITH BUTTON FASTENERS
(FR) SYSTEME DE FIXATION PAR BANDE ELASTIQUE A BOUTONNAGE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)An absorbent article includes a fastening system having first and second buttons (50, 52) bonded to an elastic strap member (22) in respective first and second end regions. The straps (22) are adapted to attach to a garment and maintain the garment in place during use. Reinforcement members (54, 56) are provided within reinforcement zones surrounding the attachment locations near each of the buttons. The reinforcement members (54, 56) locally stabilize the strap member near the attachment locations to minimize or eliminate rolling and twisting of the sides of the strap members during use.
(FR)La présente invention concerne un article absorbant dont le système de fixation comporte un premier et un second bouton (50, 52) fixés l'un dans une première zone, l'autre dans une seconde zone d'une bande élastique (22). De telles bandes (22) sont conçues pour se fixer à un vêtement et pour maintenir ce vêtement en place pendant l'utilisation. Des pièces de renfort (54, 56) sont disposées dans les zones de renfort entourant les points de fixation au voisinage de chacun des boutons. Ces pièces de renfort (54, 56) servent à stabiliser localement la bande au voisinage des points de fixation de façon à supprimer en tout ou partie les phénomènes d'enroulement ou de torsadage de la bande pendant l'utilisation.
