Title (EN) ABSORBENT ARTICLES COMPRISING A MATERIAL HAVING A HIGH VERTICAL WICKING CAPACITY
(FR) ARTICLES ABSORBANTS MUNIS D'UN MATERIAU POSSEDANT UNE CAPACITE ELEVEE D'IMBIBITION PAR CAPILLARITE VERTICALE
Abstract:
(EN) Disclosed are absorbent cores for inclusion in articles such as diapers, incontinent briefs, training pants, diaper holders and liners, feminine hygiene garments, and the like, designed to provide improved fit and comfort for the wearer while adequately containing body exudates. The absorbent core is designed so as to retain low levels of fluid in the crotch region, relative to the other core regions, even when the core absorbs significant amounts of fluid during use. To achieve this, the absorbent core is designed such that fluid is moved substantially from the crotch region to the front and/or rear ends of the article. In particular, the absorbent core comprises in its crotch region a material having significant vertical wicking absorbent capacities.
(FR) La présente invention concerne des noyaux absorbants destinés à être insérés dans des articles tels que les couches pour bébé, les protections contre l'incontinence, les culottes de propreté, les supports et les garnitures de couche, les serviettes hygiéniques et articles similaires, lesquels noyaux absorbants sont conçus pour améliorer le confort et l'ajustement au corps de l'utilisateur tout en retenant de façon adéquate les écoulements corporels. Le noyau absorbant de la présent invention est conçu de manière qu'il retient un faible niveau de fluide dans la zone de l'entrejambes par rapport aux autres régions du noyau, même lorsque le noyau absorbe d'importantes quantités de fluide au cours de l'utilisation. A cette fin, le noyau absorbant est conçu de manière que le fluide se déplace dans une large mesure depuis la zone de l'entrejambes vers l'extrémité avant et/ou l'extrémité arrière dudit article. En particulier, le noyau absorbant comprend, dans la zone de l'entrejambes, un matériau possédant une capacité élevée d'imbibition par capillarité verticale.
