Title: ABSORBENT ARTICLE, ABSORBENT CORE AND METHOD FOR MANUFACTURING SAID ABSORBENT ARTICLE
Abstract:
The invention relates to an absorbent article (1) having a longitudinal direction, a transverse direction and a thickness direction, and comprising a fluid permeable topsheet (2), a fluid impermeable backsheet (3) and an absorbent core (4) enclosed between the topsheet (2) and the backsheet (3) having, in the longitudinal direction, a front section (8), a rear section (9) and a crotch section (10) between the front section (8) and the rear section (9), the absorbent core (4) having two longitudinally extending side regions (4d, 4e) and a longitudinally extending central region (4a) between said side regions (4d, 4e). The central region (4a) and the side regions (4d, 4e) are spaced apart in the transversal direction by longitudinally extending channel regions (4b, 4c). Furthermore the width (w) of the central region (4a) in the transversal direction is less than the width (ws) of each of the side regions (4d, 4e) in the transversal direction, at least in the front section (8) and the rear section (9), and that the channel regions (4b, 4c) are of less basis weight than the side regions (4d, 4e) and the central region (4a). The invention also relates to an absorbent core (4) and a method for manufacturing said absorbent article (1).
