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 synthetic nonwoven surge layer disposed adjacent the liner between the absorbent core and the liner; and a dispersion layer disposed between the surge layer and the absorbent core, wherein the dispersion layer includes a three-dimensionally patterned, wetlaid, cellulosic tissue nonwoven material. The dispersion layer also includes opposing dispersion 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 couche d'afflux non tissée synthétique disposée adjacente à la doublure entre le noyau absorbant et la doublure; et une couche de dispersion disposée entre la couche d'afflux et le noyau absorbant, la couche de dispersion comprenant un matériau non tissé de tissu cellulosique à motif tridimensionnel, obtenu par voie humide. La couche de dispersion comprend également des surfaces de couche de dispersion 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.
