Disposable Diaper Having Pocket Containments And A Method For Manufacturing The Same
Patent #: 6,494,872
Inventor(s): Migaku Suzuki and Hiroaki Fukui
Company: Paragon Trade Brands, Norcross
A diaper with a liquid-impermeable backsheet and a hydrophobic topsheet, surrounding an absorbent body, has been patented. The topsheet comprises two separate sheets, each having a concave portion between spaced convex portions. The two sheets are arranged to face each other so that the convex portions partially overlay each other at the diaper’s front and rear end portions to form pocket portions. The concave portions each have a pair of spaced transverse cuts to define a flap portion, which is folded over by a predetermined width to enclose an elastic member where the folded-over flap portions face each other to define an apertured portion.
