Abstract
(EN)
An absorbent article which can have an improved feeling of comfort next to the skin of the wearer and a reduction in the feelings of wetness and rewet. An absorbent article can have a longitudinal direction, a transverse direction, and a depth direction. The absorbent article can have a topsheet layer, a backsheet layer, and an absorbent core positioned between the topsheet layer and the backsheet layer. The topsheet layer can have a hydrophilic central layer, a semi-hydrophilic first side layer, and a semi-hydrophilic second side layer. Each of the semi-hydrophilic side layers can be bonded to the central layer utilizing an embossing technique in the regions of overlap of each of the semi-hydrophilic side layers with the central layer. The area of the body-facing surface of each of the regions of overlap can contain from about 10% to about 35% of at least one embossment.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un article absorbant qui peut procurer une sensation de confort améliorée au contact de la peau de l'utilisateur et une réduction des sensations d'humidité et de réhumidification. L'article absorbant peut avoir une direction longitudinale, une direction transversale et une direction de profondeur. L’article absorbant peut comporter une couche supérieure, une couche arrière et une partie centrale absorbante positionnée entre la couche supérieure et la couche arrière. La couche supérieure peut comporter une couche centrale hydrophile, une première couche latérale semi-hydrophile et une seconde couche latérale semi-hydrophile. Chacune des couches latérales semi-hydrophiles peut être liée à la couche centrale en utilisant une technique d'embossage sur les parties de chevauchement de chacune des couches latérales semi-hydrophiles avec la couche centrale. La zone de la surface orientée vers le corps de chacune des parties de chevauchement peut contenir d'environ 10 % à environ 35 % d'un ou plusieurs embossages.
