  • Patent number: 10213347
    Abstract: An absorbent article (100-1200) is capable of providing comfort to the wearer and can maintain dryness and inhibit the leakage of fluid. The absorbent article (100-1200) includes a multi-layered topsheet (138). The multi-layered topsheet (138) includes a first topsheet layer (106) having an opening (148) and a second topsheet layer (108) disposed under the first topsheet layer (106). The first topsheet layer (106) and the second topsheet layer (108) are joined together by a seal that, in one embodiment, generally corresponds with the shape of the opening (148). Further, a first sub-topsheet layer (116) is situated beneath the multi-layered topsheet (138) and has an opening (150) that is smaller than the first topsheet layer opening (148). This combination of openings (148, 150) situated one below the other provides for an absorbent article (100-1200) that can maintain a high level of dryness and its ability to conform to the wearer's body, and inhibit the leakage of bodily fluids due to a funnel-like effect.

  • Publication number: 20180133071
    Abstract: An absorbent article (10;100;200) includes a topsheet layer (16,17), a backsheet layer (18) and a subjacent layer (20, 20A-20D) between the topsheet layer (16,17) and the backsheet layer (18). A compressible fluid management layer (22;110;210) is positioned between the topsheet layer (16,17) and the subjacent layer (20, 20A-20D). The compressible fluid management layer (22;110;210) has an inner edge (22A) that defines an annular opening (28), with the annular opening (28) extending entirely through the compressible fluid management layer (22;110;210). The compressible fluid management layer (22;110;210) includes a first embossed feature (24) positioned at least at portions, within the annular opening (28), and adjacent to the inner edge (22A) of compressible fluid management layer (22;110;210), shaped to conform the shape of the inner edge (22A). A first embossed feature (24) is positioned within the topsheet layer (16,17) and the subjacent layer (20, 20A-20D).

  • Patent number: 9968494
    Abstract: An absorbent article (20;620;720;820;920;1020) capable of inhibiting leakage of a fluid insult generally extends in a plane defined by a longitudinal direction and a transverse direction. The absorbent article (20;620;720;820;920;1020) contains fluid-shrinkable members (60,61), a topsheet (11;611;711;811), and a base pad (12;812) that includes a baffle (28;828) and an absorbent core (30) positioned between the topsheet (11;611;711;811) and the baffle (28;828). The topsheet (11;611;711;811) extends in the longitudinal direction to define a distal end (153) and an opposing proximal end (152). At least a portion of the proximal end (152) remains generally unbonded to the baffle (28;828). The fluid-shrinkable members (60,61) extend in the longitudinal direction of the absorbent article (20;620;720;820;920;1020) so that at least a portion of the fluid-shrinkable members (60,61) are located adjacent to the proximal end (152) of the topsheet (11;611;711;811).
