Absorbent Article With Improved Closing Mechanism

April 1, 2008

An absorbent article designed like underpants, with a pants chassis, a first leg opening, a second leg opening and a waist opening, was patented. The absorbent article comprises at least a first openable seal line arranged at the first leg opening. The first openable seal line has a first sealed configuration defined by the first openable seal line being sealed by a predetermined sealing means prior to use and, after the predetermined sealing means is broken, a second resealable configuration. First and second opening and closing means are arranged to cooperate with one another when the predetermined sealing means of the openable seal line is broken so as to releasably reseal the openable seal line in the second resealable configuration. The first and second opening and closing means are situated on respective sides of the first openable seal line and are arranged entirely on a surface of the pants chassis. The first opening and closing means are arranged entirely on an inside surface of the pants chassis and the second opening and closing means are arranged entirely on an outside surface of the pants chassis such that a first opened edge of the openable seal line is overlapped with a second opened edge of the openable seal line when the openable seal line is resealed in the second resealable configuration.
