Title
(EN) DISPOSABLE ABSORBENT ARTICLE HAVING ELASTICIZED OUTER LEG CUFF
(FR) ARTICLE ABSORBANT JETABLE PRESENTANT UN REBORD DE JAMBE EXTERIEUR ELASTIQUE
Abstract
(EN)
The present invention is directed to a disposable absorbent article. The disposable absorbent article has a longitudinal centerline, a lateral centerline, an outer surface and an inner surface. The absorbent article is folded before use along the lateral direction. The disposable absorbent article comprises a liquid pervious topsheet, a liquid impervious backsheet, an absorbent core disposed therebetween, and an elasticized outer leg cuff. The elasticized outer leg cuff is disposed adjacent to a longitudinal side edge of the absorbent article. The elasticized outer leg cuff has a base and a gasket cuff supported by the base at a joint of the base to the gasket cuff. The gasket cuff is provided with elasticity and has a top gasket cuff surface, an inner cuff extending laterally inwardly from the joint and an outer cuff extending laterally outwardly from the joint. Before use of the absorbent article, the elasticized outer leg cuff is folded laterally inwardly onto the inner surface of the absorbent article such that the top gasket cuff surface faces upwardly.

L'invention concerne un article absorbant jetable qui possède une ligne centrale longitudinale, une ligne centrale latérale, une surface extérieure et une surface intérieure. Cet article absorbant est plié avant utilisation dans le sens latéral. Ledit article absorbant jetable comprend une feuille supérieure perméable aux liquides, une feuille arrière imperméable aux liquides, une partie centrale disposée entre les feuilles supérieure et arrière, et un rebord de jambe extérieur élastique. Ce rebord de jambe extérieur élastique est disposé de façon adjacente à un bord latéral longitudinal dudit article absorbant, et présente une base et un rebord d'étanchéité porté par la base au niveau d'un raccordement de la base au rebord d'étanchéité. Ce rebord d'étanchéité est élastique et présente une surface de rebord d'étanchéité supérieure, un rebord intérieur s'étendant latéralement vers l'intérieur depuis le raccordement, et un rebord extérieur s'étendant latéralement vers l'extérieur depuis le raccordement. Avant utilisation dudit article absorbant, ledit rebord de jambe extérieur élastique est plié latéralement vers l'intérieur sur la surface intérieure de l'article absorbant de façon que la surface de rebord d'étanchéité supérieure soit orientée vers le haut.
