Patent Number 5368926
The present invention provides a fluid accepting, transporting and retaining structure, useful in disposable absorbent articles. In-use fluid deposited on a disposable absorbent article employing such a structure is moved via interfiber and intrafiber transport to a fluid retention area remote from the point of fluid insult. By moving fluid away from the point of insult a more effective use of the absorbent core is achieved providing a clean and dry surface for the wearer.
