Abstract
(EN)
A garment or undergarment, such as an absorbent article, having a first region, a second region opposed to the first region and a garment material extending through at least a portion of the first region. The garment material has a surface wherein at least a portion of the surface has been mechanically modified to form a plurality of surface protrusions integrally from the garment material. The garment further includes a landing zone having a plurality of fibrous loops located at least partially in the second waist region and adapted to engage with the surface protrusions of the first region to provide a closure mechanism for holding the first region and the second region in an overlapping configuration. In addition, the integrally-formed surface protrusions can be provided on the inner surface of the garment contacting the skin of the wearer to provide a frictional force between the surface protrusions and the skin of the wearer to provide the garment with desired functional characteristics when in use by the wearer.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un vêtement ou un sous-vêtement tel qu'un article absorbant comprenant une première région, une seconde région opposée à la première région, et un matériau composant le vêtement couvrant au moins une partie de la première région. Le matériau composant le vêtement présente une surface dont une partie au moins a été modifiée mécaniquement de manière à former une pluralité de protubérances superficielles solidaires du matériau du vêtement. Ce vêtement comprend en outre une zone d'accrochage comprenant une pluralité de boucles fibreuses situées au moins en partie dans la seconde région de ceinture et conçues pour s'accoupler avec les protubérances de la première région, formant ainsi un mécanisme de fermeture permettant de maintenir la première région et la seconde région dans une configuration superposée. Des protubérances solidaires de la surface en outre être formées sur la surface intérieure du vêtement et entrer en contact avec la peau de l'utilisateur et produire une force de frottement entre les protubérances et la peau afin de conférer au vêtement des caractéristiques fonctionnelles désirées lorsqu'il est porté.
