Title (EN) ABSORBENT PRODUCT WITH NONWOVEN DAMPNESS INHIBITOR
(FR) PRODUIT ABSORBANT AVEC INHIBITEUR D'HUMIDITE NON TISSE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)An absorbent article including a liquid-permeable top layer, an absorbent core layer, breathable outer cover, and an inner nonwoven filament layer between the absorbent core and breathable outer cover. The outer cover includes a breathable film and an outer nonwoven filament layer. The inner nonwoven filament layer has a mean fiber denier which is higher than the mean fiber denier of the outer nonwoven filament layer. The inner nonwoven filament layer serves as a dampness inhibitor which reduces or prevents perceived dampness on the external surface of the outer cover by lowering thermal conductivity between the absorbent core and the outer cover surface.
(FR)L'invention concerne un article absorbant avec une couche supérieure perméable aux liquides, une couche centrale absorbante, une couverture extérieure respirante et une couche de filaments non tissés intérieure entre la couche centrale absorbante et la couverture extérieure respirante. La couverture extérieure comprend un film respirant et une couche de filaments non tissés extérieure. La couche de filaments non tissés intérieure présente un denier de fibres moyen qui est supérieur au denier de fibres moyen de la couche de filaments non tissés extérieure. La couche de filaments non tissés intérieure sert d'inhibiteur d'humidité qui réduit ou empêche la formation d'humidité sur la surface externe de la couverture extérieure, en abaissant la conductivité thermique entre la couche centrale absorbante et la surface de couverture extérieure.
