Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9843581A1] A method of manufacturing a compound sanitary napkin (20) comprising a primary absorbent member (30) and a base member (50) is provided. The primary absorbent member (30) extends in a longitudinal direction and comprises a primary absorbent element (34) and a fluid pervious cover (32) superimposed on the primary absorbent element (34) having a body-facing side and a base member facing side. The primary absorbent member (30) superimposes on the base member (50) such that the primary absorbent member (30) faces a wearer's body when the compound sanitary napkin (20) is used. The method comprises the steps of: providing the primary absorbent element onto the fluid pervious cover such that the body-facing side of the primary absorbing element (34) faces the fluid pervious cover and such that the base member facing side of the primary absorbent element faces generally upward, wrapping the primary absorbent element by folding each of longitudinal sides of the fluid pervious cover (32) toward the base member facing side of the primary absorbent element (34) to make the primary absorbent member (30), forwarding the primary absorbent member (30) toward a combining section, feeding the base member (50) toward the combining section to cover the primary absorbent member (30), and combining the primary absorbent member (30) and the base member (50) to make the compound sanitary napkin (20).
