Disposable Absorbent Articles Having An Interior Design Signal

June 14, 2013

A disposable absorbent article comprising: a. an interior design signal indicating absorbency; and b. an absorbent core including first and second absorbent layers, the first absorbent layer including a first substrate and the second absorbent layer including a second substrate, the first and second absorbent layers further including absorbent particulate polymer material deposited on the first and second substrates forming on each substrate, a grid pattern comprising land areas and junction areas between the land areas, the junction areas containing little or no absorbent particulate polymer material, and thermoplastic material covering the absorbent particulate polymer material on the respective first and second substrates, wherein the thermoplastic material contacts at least portions of the absorbent particulate polymer material and at least portions of the first and second substrate layers respectively;wherein the first and second absorbent layers are combined together such that the thermoplastic material of each of the first and second substrate layers contact one another such that the absorbent particulate polymer material of the land areas of the first substrate layer face the junction areas of the second substrate layer and the absorbent particulate polymer material of the land areas of the second substrate layer face the junction areas of the first substrate layer, such that the respective land areas and junction areas of each substrate are offset relative to the other substrate and the combination of absorbent particulate material of the first substrate layer and the absorbent particulate material of the second substrate layer forms a substantially continuous layer of absorbent particulate polymer material distributed across the absorbent particulate polymer material area of the absorbent core formed by the combination of the layers.
