(FR) ARTICLE ABSORBANT A ELEMENTS ENROULES REGLABLE ET PROCEDE ASSOCIE
Abstract
(EN)
An absorbent article and method are disclosed for providing side leakage protection for an undergarment and absorbent article positioning guidance for proper placement on the undergarment. An absorbent configured to fit the pudendal region of a woman and a liquid-impermeable baffle are provided with a pair of garment-attachment adjustable scroll members for receiving an arcuately shaped crotch portion of an undergarment. Arcuately shaped curled folds on a lateral side surface of the absorbent article form the adjustable scroll members. In one aspect, the arcuately shaped curled folds are formed in a layer of polyethylene/polypropylene bi-component web sheet material. In one aspect, the arcuately shaped curled folds include a liquid impervious backing.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un article absorbant ainsi qu'un procédé associé, servant à protéger un sous-vêtement contre toute fuite latérale et à guider le placement correct de l'article absorbant sur le sous-vêtement. Elle concerne notamment un article absorbant, conçu pour épouser la région vulvaire de la femme, ainsi qu'un écran étanche aux liquides, dotés d'une paire d'éléments enroulés, réglables, destinés à être fixés sur un sous-vêtement et à recevoir une portion de fourche de forme arquée du sous-vêtement. Des plis bouclés de forme arquée, situés sur une surface latérale de l'article absorbant, forment les éléments enroulés réglables. Dans un aspect de l'invention, ces plis sont formés dans une couche de matériau en feuille à deux constituants polyéthylène/polypropylène, et dans un autre aspect, ils comprennent un support étanche aux liquides.
