Absorbent Article With Multiple Zone Structural Elastic-like Film Web Extensible Waist Feature

February 28, 2004

A nonwoven web comprising a number of first regions and a plurality of second regions comprised of the same material and being visually distinct from each other has been patented. This will exhibit resistive forces in response to an applied elongation along at least one axis before a substantial portion of the second regions develop significant resistive forces to the applied elongation. And these resistive forces occur without the use of an additional elastomeric material.
