Title: INDIVIDUAL LAYERED STRUCTURES CONTAINING PARTICULATE MATERIAL, AND PROCESS FOR MANUFACTURING SAID STRUCTURES
Abstract:
The present invention relates to individual layered structures for use in a disposable absorbent article comprising a particulate material contained between containing layers, at least one of the layers being permeable to liquids. The individual layered structure is cut from a larger structure and is joined along at least along part of the cut, and further has end surfaces along said cuts. The individual layered structure comprises at least one patch of material applied along at least part of the end surfaces, wherein the at least one patch of material providing the containing layers with joining means in the at least part of the end surfaces where it is applied. The invention further relates to a process for manufacturing the individual layered structures by cutting them from a larger structure, and then providing them with at least one patch of material applied along at least part of the end surfaces formed along the cut.
