Title: NONWOVEN MATERIAL HAVING DISCRETE THREE-DIMENSIONAL DEFORMATIONS WITH IMPROVED PROTRUSION DIMENSIONS AFTER COMPRESSION
Abstract:
Nonwoven materials having discrete three-dimensional deformations therein forming protrusions that extend outward from the first surface of the nonwoven material and wide base openings adjacent to the second surface of the nonwoven material are disclosed. At least some of the three-dimensional deformations may have improved protrusion dimensions after compressive forces are applied on the nonwoven material. In some cases, at least some of the protrusions may have one or more holes therein or completely therethrough. Methods of making the same are also disclosed.
