Title: THREE-DIMENSIONAL SHAPED FORMS FOR USE IN DISPOSABLE ABSORBENT ARTICLES
Abstract:
The present invention relates to disposable absorbent articles that include a bodyside liner, an outer cover and an absorbent core between the bodyside liner and the outer cover. The articles also include a core wrap surrounding the absorbent core. Further, the articles include a shaped form between the core wrap and the absorbent core where the shaped form is a functional structure. The functional structure includes a substrate and a first fixing agent applied to the substrate. The first fixing agent includes an aqueous polymer. The functional structure also includes a functional material that is adjacent to the first fixing agent. A second fixing agent is adjacent to the functional material. The first fixing agent may be a hydrophilic solution including an aqueous polymer selected from polyvinyl alcohol and a cross-linked polyvinyl alcohol. The aqueous polymers may have molecular weights from 1,500,000 to 4,000,000.
