Abstract

The invention concerns the field of hygiene and relates to a disposable article (1) combined removably with a removable belt (12), the attachment of one to the other being obtained by means of "Velcro".RTM. attachment elements. The article comprises a first attachment element (11) fixed near each longitudinal edge on the external face of a trunk area (4); the means of attachment combined removably consist of a belt (12) provided at each extremity with a complementary second attachment element (16) of the first attachment element (11), and the other external trunk area (4) and/or at least one area (13) of the belt coming into contact with this external trunk area has a coefficient of friction sufficient to maintain the article in position by the combination of the first attachment elements (11) by means of the belt provided with the complementary second attachment elements (16).

Independent Claims | See all claims (22)

  1. 1. A disposable hygienic article (1) consisting:(a) of an absorbent pad (5) of substantially rectangular shape comprising two trunk areas (2) and (4) and a between-legs area (3) covered on its external face by a sheet (6) impermeable to liquids, such as a sheet of polyethylene, and on its internal face by a sheet (8) permeable to liquids at least in the central area (9), these two sheets being partially or completely bonded to one another along their longitudinal edges, a first attachment element (11, 11') being fixed near each longitudinal edge on the external face of a trunk area (4)(b) and a means of attachment associated removably, consisting of a belt (12) provided at each end with a complementary second means of attachment (16, 16') of the first attachment element (11, 11')characterized in that the other external area (4) and/or at least one area (13) of the belt coming into contact with this external trunk area is constituted in a manner such as to have a sufficient coefficient of friction such that when the article is in position it is maintained on the one hand by the cooperation of the first attachment elements and, on the other, by the friction of one on the other of the trunk area (4) and of said belt area (13).
  2. 3. A disposable article according to any of the preceding claims, characterized in that the attachment elements (11, 11') are located at a distance from the upper lateral edge of the trunk area (4) such that when in position it can be folded inwards to improve the sealing around the waist.
  3. 4. A disposable article according to one of the preceding claims, characterized in that on both sides the absorbent pad (5) in the between-legs area (3) are fixed to elastic laminated strips (10) and in that the first attachment elements (11, 11') are positioned outside the area delimited by the elastic laminated strips (10)--see their theoretical extension--and the extreme lateral edges of the article.
  4. 5. A disposable article according to one of the preceding claims, characterized in that belt (12) is extendable.
  5. 6. A disposable article according to one of the preceding claims, characterized in that belt (12) is formed of longitudinal fibrous materials (14) with which are combined rubber threads, for example by twisting.
  6. 22.22. A hygienic article according to one of the preceding claims characterized in that the lateral facets of the trunk area 2 in contact with the belt are treated with an adherent coating having no or very slight resistance to peeling.
