Absorbent Pouches

December 10, 2002

Patented is a continuous chain of connected absorbent pouches. Each of the pouches is adapted to absorb liquids. The pouches comprise a first and second panel and a superabsorbent material. The panels are attached to each other along their respective peripheries and form a space in between. The space consists of superabsorbent material and, in the absence of tissue paper, fibrous material and gel strips. One of the panels has a hole and is large enough to be permeable to liquid. The pouches are adapted to absorb approximately 20 times their own weight of a 0.9% saline solution in an unloaded condition.
