Absorbent Product With Fastening Arrangements

October 17, 2006

An absorbent product with a longitudinal direction and a transverse direction has been patented. It comprises a liquid-permeable surface layer, a liquid-impermeable surface layer and an absorption body arranged between the surface layers. The liquid-permeable surface layer is intended to face the body of a wearer during use. The product also includes two side edges in the longitudinal direction, a front edge, a rear edge, a front portion and a rear portion and fastening arrangements comprising an adhesive attachment zone to be attached to the body of a wearer. The absorption body in its planar extension is essentially triangular in shape with the front portion being wider than the rear portion. Two of the fastening arrangements are arranged on the front portion of the product and extend in a diverging manner from the absorption body so that distal portions of the two fastening arrangements, which include the adhesive attachment zones, are farther apart from each other than the proximal portions of the two fastening arrangements. One of the fastening arrangements is arranged on the rear portion of the product. The fastening arrangements each comprise a part that extends in a strip from a periphery of the product and bears the adhesive attachment zone.
