Title (EN) ABSORBENT ARTICLE WITH IMPROVED FLUID HANDLING
(FR) ARTICLE ABSORBANT À GESTION DE FLUIDE AMÉLIORÉE
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; and a core wrap at least partially encircling the absorbent core, wherein the core wrap includes a three-dimensionally patterned, wetlaid, cellulosic tissue nonwoven material. Fibers of the nonwoven material are entirely cellulose fibers, and the core wrap includes opposing core wrap surfaces each having a textured surface. 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, comprenant un système de gestion de fluide, qui comprend 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 ; et une enveloppe de noyau encerclant au moins en partie le noyau absorbant, l'enveloppe de noyau comprenant un matériau non tissé par voie humide de tissu cellulosique à motif tridimensionnel. Les fibres du matériau non tissé sont entièrement des fibres de cellulose, et l'enveloppe de noyau comprend des surfaces d'enveloppe de noyau opposées ayant chacune une surface texturée. Chaque surface comprend un plan moyen de matériau, une pluralité de crêtes s'étendant dans une direction z depuis le plan moyen de matériau, et une pluralité de rainures alternant avec la pluralité de crêtes, la profondeur des rainures s'étendant dans la direction z opposée au plan moyen de matériau.
