Title (EN) ABSORBENT ARTICLE WITH IMPROVED FLUID HANDLING
(FR) ARTICLE ABSORBANT AYANT DES PROPRIÉTÉS AMÉLIORÉES D'ABSORPTION ET DE RÉTENTION DES FLUIDES
Abstract:
(EN) An absorbent article having a fluid-handling system includes a fluid permeable bodyside liner; a fluid impermeable outer cover; an absorbent core disposed between the liner and the outer cover, wherein the absorbent core includes superabsorbent material and optionally fluff pulp; a tissue core wrap encircling the absorbent core; and a distribution sub-layer disposed between the absorbent core and the outer cover and within the core wrap, wherein the distribution sub-layer includes a three-dimensionally patterned, wetlaid, cellulosic tissue nonwoven material. The distribution sub-layer includes opposing distribution sub-layer surfaces each having a textured surface, wherein each surface includes an average material plane, a plurality of ridges extending in a z-direction from the average material plane, and a plurality of grooves alternating with the plurality of ridges, wherein the grooves depth extend in the opposite z-direction from the average material plane.
(FR) L'invention concerne un article absorbant ayant un système d'absorption et de rétention des fluides, comprenant une doublure côté corps perméable aux fluides; un revêtement externe imperméable aux fluides; un noyau absorbant disposé entre la doublure et le revêtement externe, le noyau absorbant comprenant un matériau superabsorbant et éventuellement de la pâte défibrée; une enveloppe de noyau de tissu encerclant le noyau absorbant; et une sous-couche de distribution disposée entre le noyau absorbant et le revêtement externe et à l'intérieur de l'enveloppe de noyau, la sous-couche de distribution comprenant un matériau non tissé de tissu cellulosique à motif tridimensionnel, obtenu par voie humide. La sous-couche de distribution comprend des surfaces de sous-couche de distribution opposées ayant chacune une surface texturée, chaque surface comprenant un plan de matériau moyen, une pluralité de crêtes s'étendant dans une direction z à partir du plan de matériau moyen, et une pluralité de rainures alternant avec la pluralité de crêtes, la profondeur des rainures s'étendant dans la direction z opposée à partir du plan de matériau moyen.
