Title (EN) COFORM NONWOVEN WEB CONTAINING EXPANDABLE BEADS
(FR) BANDE NON TISSÉE COMPOSITE CONTENANT DES BILLES EXPANSIBLES
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A coform nonwoven web that contains a composite matrix formed from a combination of synthetic fibers and an absorbent material is provided. A plurality of thermally expandable beads are also contained within the composite matrix. By selectively controlling various aspects of the thermal activation of the beads, as well as the particular manner in which the beads are incorporated within the nonwoven web, the present inventors have discovered that the resulting coform web can achieve an increased bulk that remains relatively stable even in a wet condition. Thus, the resulting coform web can be readily employed in a wet wipe without losing its bulk and overall texture.
(FR)La présente invention concerne une bande non tissée composite qui contient une matrice composite formée à partir d'une combinaison de fibres synthétiques et d'un matériau absorbant. Une pluralité de billes expansibles thermiquement sont également contenues à l'intérieur de la matrice composite. En contrôlant de manière sélective divers aspects de l'activation thermique des billes, ainsi que la manière particulière dont les billes sont incorporées à l'intérieur de la bande non-tissée, les présents inventeurs ont découvert que la bande composite résultante peut obtenir une plus grande masse qui reste relativement stable même à l'état humide. Ainsi, la bande composite résultante peut être facilement utilisée dans une lingette humide sans perdre sa masse et sa texture globale.
