Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9932699A1] An ultralight nonwoven material useful as a facing fabric for forming various personal care products includes a nonwoven web having a fibrous structure of individual fibers or filaments and a basis weight of less than 0.40 ounces per square yard. A pattern of bonded areas is formed on the surface of the web, which has a dimensional stability characterized by a factor calculated by multiplying the nonwoven web's Poisson Ratio at 10 % elongation in the machine direction by the nonwoven web's basis weight, wherein said factor is equal to or less than 1.20 osy.PR. The bonded areas may be continuous or discontinuous.
