Title (EN) ABSORBENT NON-WOVEN FIBROUS MATS AND PROCESS FOR PREPARING SAME
(FR) MATS FIBREUX NON TISSÉS ABSORBANTS ET LEUR PROCÉDÉ DE PRÉPARATION
Abstract: front page image
(EN)The present invention relates to liquid entrapping devices (e.g., absorbent non-woven fibrous mats) and to a process for preparing such devices. More particularly, the present invention relates to mechanically strong absorbent materials made from such liquid entrapping devices (e.g., non-woven fibrous mats) and to a method for preparing same. In one embodiment, a liquid entrapping device of the present invention comprises at least one hydrophilic elastomeric fibrous component (HEFC) and at least one wetting agent component. In another embodiment, a liquid entrapping device of the present invention comprise at least one hydrophilic elastomeric fibrous component (HEFC), at least one absorbent component, and at least one wetting agent component. In one instance, the wetting agent component of the present invention is contained on and/or within the fibers and/or nanofibers that form the liquid entrapping device (e.g., a non-woven fibrous mat) of the present invention.
(FR)La présente invention concerne des moyens de piégeage de liquide (par ex., des mats fibreux non tissés absorbants) et un procédé de préparation de tels moyens. Plus spécifiquement, cette invention a pour objet des matériaux absorbants mécaniquement solides, constitués de moyens de piégeage de liquide (par ex., des mats fibreux non tissés), et un procédé de préparation de ces matériaux. Dans un mode de réalisation, un moyen de piégeage de liquide comprend au moins un composant fibreux élastomère hydrophile et au moins un composant à agent mouillant. Dans un autre mode de réalisation, un moyen de piégeage de liquide renferme au moins un composant fibreux élastomère hydrophile, au moins un composant absorbant et au moins un composant à agent mouillant. Dans un exemple, le composant à agent mouillant est contenu sur et/ou dans les fibres et/ou nanofibres qui forment le moyen de piégeage de liquide (par ex., le mat fibreux non tissé) de la présente invention.
