  • Patent number: 9675499
    Abstract: A permanently closed containment pant including a chassis and a sling that is positioned within the chassis and is joined to the front waist region and the back waist region is disclosed. The sling is attached to the chassis with an attachment mechanism to secure the sling to the chassis. The attachment mechanism may comprise a bonded attachment and an attachment elastic material at a middle portion of the sling to the chassis at the crotch region; a bond attachment adjacent the pouch in a transition material; or elastics extending from the leg openings and attaching to the sling in the crotch region.

  • Patent number: 9308131
    Abstract: A permanently closed containment pant includes an elastically extensible chassis and a sling positioned within the chassis. The sling is joined to the front waist region and the back waist region. The sling includes a fluid-impervious base sheet and a containment flap joined with the base sheet to create a fluid-impervious pouch. The sling also includes a first transition and a second transition that are elastically extensible in a longitudinal direction and in a transverse direction. The base sheet is a fabric laminated with polyurethane and the containment flap is a fabric laminated with polyurethane. The polyurethane surface of the base sheet is ultrasonically joined in facing relationship with the polyurethane surface of the containment flap. The permanently closed containment pant is substantially devoid of an integrated absorbent core.

The sling is joined to the front waist region and the back waist region. The sling includes a fluid-impervious base sheet and a containment flap joined with the base sheet to create a fluid-impervious pouch. The sling also includes a first transition and a second transition that are elastically extensible in a longitudinal direction and in a transverse direction. Material properties of the pouch and chassis provide the proper fit for comfort and leakage protection.

  • Patent number: 9198807
    Abstract: A permanently closed containment pant includes an elastically extensible chassis and a sling positioned within the chassis. The sling is joined to the front waist region and the back waist region. The sling includes a fluid-impervious base sheet and a first containment flap, and a second containment flap each joined with the base sheet to create a fluid-impervious pouch. The first end of the first containment flap is joined to the first end of the second containment flap and the second end of the first containment flap is joined to the second end of the second containment flap. The sling also includes a first transition and a second transition that are elastically extensible in a longitudinal direction and in a transverse direction. In some embodiments, the containment pant has a tension in the longitudinal direction from about 1000 grams force to about 2400 grams force at an elongation of about 150%.

  • Patent number: 9011398
    Abstract: A method for providing a containment system includes providing a permanently closed containment pant and providing a discrete absorbent insert. The containment pant includes an elastically extensible chassis and a sling positioned within the chassis that includes a fluid-impervious pouch. The pouch has a first end section maximum width of at least 145 mm, a central section maximum width of less than 115 mm, and a second end section maximum width of at least 145 mm. The containment pant is substantially devoid of an integrated absorbent core. The absorbent insert includes an absorbent core with a first end section maximum width of at least 120 mm, a central section maximum width of less than 100 mm, and a second end section maximum width of at least 120 mm. The absorbent insert is devoid of a fluid-impervious layer.

  • Patent number: 9011403
    Abstract: A discrete absorbent insert includes an absorbent core positioned between a first sheet and a second sheet. The first sheet and the second sheet extend beyond the core and are joined together to form a seal. The absorbent core has at least 40% superabsorbent. The absorbent insert has an intake layer of at least 100 gsm between the first sheet and the absorbent core. The first sheet and the second sheet are fluid permeable, spunbond webs of synthetic polymer filaments. The absorbent insert is devoid of a fluid-impervious layer and has an absorbent capacity of at least 600 g. The first end section of the absorbent core has a maximum width of at least 135 mm, the central section of the absorbent core has a maximum width of less than 90 mm, and the second end section of the absorbent core has a maximum width of at least 135 mm.
