Title (EN) THERMOPLASTIC INJECTION MOLDED AND FLUSHABLE TAMPON APPLICATOR
(FR) APPLICATEUR DE TAMPON MOULÉ PAR INJECTION ET JETABLE DANS LES TOILETTES
Abstract:
(EN) A flushable tampon applicator product includes an outer tube for housing a tampon; an inner tube, at least a portion of which extends into the outer tube, wherein the outer tube includes an outer, body-contacting surface, wherein the inner tube is moveable relative to the outer tube and configured to expel a tampon from the outer tube, and wherein at least one of the outer tube and the inner tube comprises a thermoplastic composition including partially-hydrolyzed polyvinyl alcohol (PVOH), polyethylene glycol (PEG), a plasticizer, and a hydrophobic polymeric component, wherein at least one of the outer tube and the inner tube is a molded part; and a wrapper material configured for storage under high and low moisture storage conditions, the wrapper material having a water vapor transmission rate of less than 0.05g/100in2/day.
(FR) L'invention concerne un produit applicateur de tampon jetable dans les toilettes qui comprend un tube externe pour loger un tampon ; un tube interne, dont au moins une partie s'étend dans le tube externe, le tube externe comprenant une surface externe en contact avec le corps, le tube interne étant mobile par rapport au tube externe et conçu pour expulser un tampon du tube externe, et au moins l'un parmi le tube externe et le tube interne comprenant une composition thermoplastique comprenant de l'alcool polyvinylique partiellement hydrolysé (PVOH), du polyéthylène glycol (PEG), un plastifiant et un composant polymère hydrophobe, au moins l'un parmi le tube externe et le tube interne étant une pièce moulée ; et un matériau d'emballage conçu pour un stockage dans des conditions de stockage d'humidité élevée et faible, le matériau d'emballage ayant un taux de transmission de vapeur d'eau inférieur à 0,05g/100 pouces2/jour.
