Dual-Zoned Absorbent Webs

June 28, 2005

Patented is a method for producing an absorbent article, which includes several steps. The first step is to prepare a wet resilient, cellulosic basesheet with elevated and depressed regions with an overall surface depth of at least 0.2 mm and an upper and lower surface. The next step is to integrally attach a contiguous, fibrous nonwoven web with a plurality of openings onto the upper surface of the cellulosic basesheet such that a portion of the openings are superposed over the depressed regions of the cellulosic basesheet. The next step is to attach the lower surface of the basesheet to an absorbent core and an impervious web such that the absorbent core is sandwiched between the impervious web and the basesheet.
