Abstract (en)

[origin: EP0934736A1] The present invention relates to absorbent articles like baby diapers, adult incontinence articles and in particular to sanitary napkins or pantiliners which have an apertured film topsheet on the surface facing the wearer in use. According to the present invention the articles are provided also with an apertured backsheet for breathability. The backsheet comprises at least one breathable layer of a resilient, three dimensional web which consists of a liquid impervious polymeric film having apertures. These apertures form capillaries which are not perpendicular to the plane of the film but are disposed at an angle of less than 90 DEG relative to the plane of the film. <IMAGE>
