Disposable Absorbent Article

October 25, 2005

A disposable absorbent article for personal wear has been issued a patent. The disposable absorbent article comprises a generally liquid permeable liner adapted for contiguity with the wearer’s skin, an outer cover and an absorbent body between the liner and outer cover for absorbing liquid body waste. The article also includes a surge layer between the liner and absorbent body for taking in liquid body waste penetrating the liner and subsequently releasing liquid body waste for flow toward the absorbent body. A flow control layer is located between the liner and the surge layer for at least retarding the flow of liquid body waste penetrating the liner toward the surge layer.
