With reference to FIG.1 and FIG.2, the absorbent article which concerns on the 1st Embodiment of this invention is demonstrated. The absorbent article 1 according to the present embodiment is, for example, a sanitary napkin. Drawing 1 is a top view seen from the skin contact side of the 1st absorptive article, (a) shows the 1st absorptive article 1A, and (b) shows the 2nd absorptive article 1B. Show. FIG. 2 is a rear view of the first absorbent article 1A.

The absorbent article 1 includes a first absorbent article 1A and a second absorbent article 1B having different absorption performance. Specifically, the first absorbent article 1A is a daytime sanitary napkin for light days, and the second absorbent article 1B is a daytime sanitary napkin for heavy days. Therefore, the second absorbent article 1B is configured to be longer in the longitudinal direction and the width direction than the first absorbent article 1A and to have high absorption performance (so that a large amount of menstrual blood can be absorbed). In addition, in the following description, the same code | symbol is used for the structure common to a 1st absorbent article and a 2nd absorbent article, and description is abbreviate | omitted.
The absorbent article 1 includes a top sheet 10 that comes into contact with the wearer's skin, a liquid-impermeable back sheet 20 that does not transmit liquid, and an absorber 30. The absorber 30 is disposed between the top sheet 10 and the back sheet 20. Therefore, the absorber 30 is shown with a broken line in FIG. The absorbent body 30 is disposed at the central portion in the longitudinal direction L and the width direction W of the absorbent article 1. In addition, the absorbent article 1 includes side sheets 41 and 42 provided on the outer side in the width direction W of the absorbent body 30 orthogonal to the longitudinal direction L of the absorbent article 1, and wing portions 43 and 44.

  The top sheet 10 is a liquid-permeable sheet that transmits liquid such as body fluid. The top sheet 10 covers at least the surface of the absorber 30. The topsheet 10 has a contact area S1 corresponding to the wearer's vaginal opening (body fluid discharge opening). The topsheet 10 has a rear region S3 located behind the contact region S1 in the longitudinal direction of the absorbent article, and a front region S2 located in front of the contact region S1. In the first absorbent article 1A shown in FIG. 1, the front region S2 and the rear region S3 have the same shape, and the length and area thereof are substantially the same. On the other hand, in the second absorbent article 1B shown in FIG. 2, the front region S2 and the rear region S3 are longer in the longitudinal direction.

  The top sheet 10 is not particularly limited as long as it is a sheet-like material having a structure that allows liquid to permeate, such as a nonwoven fabric, a woven fabric, a perforated plastic sheet, and a mesh sheet. Either natural fibers or chemical fibers can be used as the woven or non-woven material.

  The back sheet 20 has substantially the same length as the back sheet 20. The back sheet 20 may be a film mainly composed of polyethylene, polypropylene, or the like, a breathable resin film, a sheet obtained by bonding a breathable resin film to a nonwoven fabric such as spunbond or spunlace. The back sheet 20 is preferably made of a material having flexibility that does not cause a sense of incongruity when worn.

  The absorber 30 includes hydrophilic fibers and pulp. The side sheets 41 and 42 can be selected from the same material as the top sheet 10. However, in order to prevent menstrual blood from flowing over the side sheets 41 and 42 to the outside of the absorbent article 1, it is preferable to have hydrophobicity or water repellency.

  The side sheets 41 and 42 are disposed on both sides of the top sheet 10. The side sheets 41 and 42 cover a part of the side edge of the absorber 30 and the wing parts 43 and 44. In the absorbent article 1, the periphery of the surface sheet 10, the side sheets 41 and 42, and the back sheet 20 is joined, and the absorber 30 is enclosed. As a method for joining the top sheet 10 and the back sheet 20, any one or a combination of heat embossing, ultrasonic waves, or hot melt adhesive can be used.

  In the back sheet 20, the adhesive 50 is applied in a line shape along the longitudinal direction of the back sheet 20 (see FIG. 2) on the surface in contact with the shorts (non-contact surface 20a). The adhesive 50 is applied in a plurality of lines along the longitudinal direction L of the back sheet 20. In the wing part 43 and the wing part 44, the adhesive material 50 is also applied to the surface in contact with the shorts. In a state before use, a protective sheet 79 for maintaining adhesiveness is adhered to the adhesive 50. The protective sheet 79 is peeled off by the wearer during use.

The performance display section 48 of the first absorbent article has one solar handle 64 as a display element, and the performance display section 49 of the second absorbent article 1B has a solar handle 64 as a display element. It has two. Similarly to the compressed grooves 21, 22, and 23, the sun handle 64 is configured by pressing the top sheet 10 to the absorber 30 in the thickness direction T. In the present embodiment, the pressing grooves 21, 22, 23 and the sun handle 64 as the display element are pressed by embossing. The display element is formed by embossing, but is not limited to this configuration. For example, the display element may be formed by printing or may be formed by hot melt processing.

  As described above, by providing the absorbent articles 1A and 1B with the performance display portions 48 and 49 having display elements associated with the absorption performance, the wearer can visually recognize the performance display portions 48 and 49 to obtain the absorption performance. Can be grasped. Moreover, the display element 60 is comprised with a pattern and / or a symbol, and displays absorption performance with the content and number. Therefore, the wearer can intuitively grasp the absorption performance as compared with the case where the absorption performance is displayed with characters or the like.

  Specifically, the absorbent performance of the absorbent article can be communicated to the wearer using an image (for example, a bright image or a light image) recalled from the content (sun) of the display element.

  Further, for example, as a pattern reminiscent of daytime or a bright image, not only a floral pattern but also a sun pattern and a heart pattern can be used. By using such a pattern display element, it is possible to inform the wearer that it is a sanitary napkin for daytime use or a sanitary napkin for light day use (less day use). On the other hand, a star pattern or a moon pattern can be used as a pattern reminiscent of a night image. By using such a display element, it is possible to inform the wearer that it is a sanitary napkin for night use or a sanitary napkin for heavy daily use (many daily use).

  In addition, the second absorbent article 1B has a rear region S3 that is longer than the first absorbent article 1A, and many display elements are attached to the rear region S3. By increasing the number of sun handle portions 64 arranged in the rear region S3, the length of the rear region S3 can be emphasized and intuitively conveyed to the wearer, and the second absorbent article 1B is heavy on the day. You can tell that it is a sanitary napkin for use. The wearer can intuitively grasp the length of the rear region S3 based on the image of the sun handle 64 and the number thereof, and can obtain a sense of security during use due to the length of the rear region S3. In other words, the wearer is relieved to know that the sanitary napkin that is used for a long time at night, such as during sleep, has a sufficiently long rear region in order to take into account fluid leakage during sleep and absorption for a long time. A feeling can be obtained. The absorption performance of the second absorbent article 1B (being a sanitary napkin for night use or having a large amount of absorption in the rear region S3) can be conveyed by the number of sun handle portions 64.

  Thus, by showing the absorption performance by the pattern, the decorative effect by the pattern or the like can be exhibited and the absorbent article 1 can be decorated in a cute manner as compared with the configuration in which the absorption performance is transmitted to the wearer by characters or the like. . Furthermore, since the index at the time of selection of an absorbent article is a picture, the wearer can enjoy and select the appearance without being aware of the depressed feeling of menstruation at the time of selection.

  The absorbent article which concerns on Embodiment 1 is comprised so that a performance display part can be visually recognized from the skin contact surface side, and when a wearer wears an absorptive article to underwear, an absorbent performance is conveyed to a wearer. be able to. Moreover, the absorbent article 1 which concerns on this invention is not restricted to this structure, You may comprise a performance display part on the back surface sheet 20 so that a performance display part can be visually recognized from the non-contact surface side. Furthermore, although the performance display part has arrange | positioned the absorbent article which concerns on Embodiment 1 only to back area | region S3, you may arrange | position a performance display part only to front area | region S2, and front area | region S2 and back area | region S3. A performance display unit may be arranged on both.

(Second Embodiment)
With reference to FIG.4 and FIG.5, the absorbent article 1 which concerns on the 2nd Embodiment of this invention is demonstrated. In the description of the second embodiment, a configuration different from that of the first embodiment will be described, and the description of the same configuration will be omitted by using the same reference numerals. FIG. 3 is a plan view seen from the skin contact surface side of the third absorbent article 1C, and FIG. 4 is a plan view seen from the skin contact surface side of the fourth absorbent article 1D. FIG. 5 is a cross-sectional view taken along the line AA shown in FIG.

  The absorbent article 1 according to the second embodiment includes a third absorbent article 1C and a fourth absorbent article 1D having different absorption performance. Specifically, the third absorbent article 1C is a daytime sanitary napkin, and the fourth absorbent article 1D is a nighttime sanitary napkin. Accordingly, the fourth absorbent article 1D is longer in the longitudinal direction than the third absorbent article 1C, and is configured to have high absorption performance (so that a large amount of menstrual blood can be absorbed). In the third absorbent article 1C shown in FIG. 3, the front region S2 and the rear region S3 have the same shape, and the length and area thereof are substantially the same. On the other hand, the fourth absorbent article 1D shown in FIG. 4 has a longer length in the longitudinal direction in the front region S2 and the rear region S3.

  In the front area S2 and the rear area S3 of the third absorbent article 1C, performance display sections 51 and 52 each having a plurality of floral patterns 60 as display elements are provided. On the other hand, in the front area S2 and the rear area S3 of the fourth absorbent article 1D, performance display sections 53 and 54 each having a plurality of star pattern sections 61 as display elements are provided. The floral pattern portion 60 and the star pattern portion 61 are configured by pressing the top sheet 10 to the absorber 30 in the thickness direction T, similarly to the compressed grooves 21, 22, and 23. In addition, in this embodiment, the pressing grooves 21, 22, and 23, and the floral pattern portion 60 and the star pattern portion 61 as display elements are compressed by embossing. The display element is formed by embossing, but is not limited to this configuration. For example, the display element may be formed by printing or may be formed by hot melt processing.

  Thus, by providing the absorbent articles 1C and 1D with the performance display units 51 to 54 having display elements associated with the absorption performance, the wearer can visually recognize the performance display units 51 to 54 to obtain the absorption performance. Can be grasped. Further, the display element is constituted by a pattern and / or a symbol, and displays the absorption performance by the content and number thereof. Therefore, the wearer can intuitively grasp the absorption performance as compared with the case where the absorption performance is displayed with characters or the like.

  Specifically, the third absorbent article 1C, which is a daytime sanitary napkin, is provided with a performance display section having a floral pattern 60, and the fourth absorbent article 1D, which is a night sanitary napkin, is provided with a star pattern part. By providing the performance display unit having 61, the absorbent performance of each absorbent article 1 can be transmitted to the wearer using an image recalled from the contents (flowers and stars) of the display elements.

  The front area S2 and the rear area S3 of the third absorbent article 1C are the same area as described above, and the performance display portions 51 and 52 arranged in each area include the same pattern and the number of floral pattern portions 60. Have. Each performance display part 51 and 52 has two floral pattern parts 60, respectively. The two floral patterns 60 have the same shape, and are a small floral pattern 60A and a large floral pattern 60B.

  As described above, the rear region S3 of the fourth absorbent article 1D is larger than the front region S2, and the performance display unit 54 disposed in the rear region S3 is larger than the performance display unit 53 disposed in the front region S2. . The performance display unit 53 arranged in the front region S2 has two star patterns 61. The two star patterns 61 are a small star pattern 61A and a large star pattern 61B. The performance display unit 54 arranged in the front region S2 has three star patterns 61. The three star pattern parts are a small star pattern part 61A and a large star pattern part 61B similar to the performance display part 53 in the front area S2, and a star pattern part 61C larger than the large star pattern part 61B.

  In 4th absorbent article 1D whose longitudinal direction length of back area | region S3 is longer than a front area | region, by increasing the number of the star pattern parts 61 arrange | positioned in back area | region S3, it is a wearer's back area | region S3. The length can be emphasized and transmitted intuitively, and the second absorbent article 1D can be transmitted as a sanitary napkin for night use. Furthermore, since the star pattern portion is attached as the display element to the second absorbent article 1D, the wearer intuitively tells the wearer that the sanitary napkin is for night use from the image recalled from the star pattern portion. be able to.

  The wearer can intuitively grasp the length of the rear region S3 based on the image of the star pattern portion and the number thereof, and can obtain a sense of security during use due to the length of the rear region. In other words, the wearer is relieved to know that the sanitary napkin that is used for a long time at night, such as during sleep, has a sufficiently long rear region in order to take into account fluid leakage during sleep and absorption for a long time. A feeling can be obtained. The absorption performance of the fourth absorbent article (being a sanitary napkin for night use or having a large amount of absorption in the rear region) can be conveyed by the number of star pattern portions 61.

  Further, in the star pattern portion 61 of the fourth absorbent article 1D, the star pattern portion disposed on the outer side in the longitudinal direction is larger than the star pattern portion disposed on the inner side in the longitudinal direction, and gradually increases toward the outer side in the longitudinal direction. It ’s big. Therefore, the length of the rear region S3 can be emphasized also by the size of the star pattern portion 61. In the present embodiment, the plurality of display elements such as the star pattern portions 61A to 61C are arranged so as to be shifted in the width direction, but are not limited to this configuration. You may arrange | position in a line so that the center may follow a longitudinal direction.

  In the second embodiment, the third star pattern portion 61C of the fourth absorbent article 1D arranged more than the third absorbent article has a larger shape than the other star pattern portions 61A and 60B. However, it is not limited to this configuration, and may be the same size as other star pattern portions. Moreover, in an absorbent article including a plurality of display elements, the display elements may be the same size without changing the size.

  As shown in FIG. 5, in the third absorbent article 1 </ b> C, the compressed grooves 21, 22, 23 and the floral pattern 60 are pressed in the thickness direction. In the pressing process, the top sheet 10 and the absorbent body 30 are pressed in the thickness direction T. Therefore, the pressing grooves 21, 22, 23 and the floral pattern 60 are high pressure areas where the density of the absorbent body 30 is increased. On the other hand, parts other than the pressing grooves 21, 22, 23 and the floral pattern portion 60 are low-pressure pressing areas having a density lower than that of the high-pressure pressing area. Therefore, the pressing groove and the floral pattern part, which are the high-pressure squeezing region, have higher absorbency than the surroundings, which are the low-pressure squeezing region.

  That is, the floral pattern part 60 and the star pattern part 61 which are display elements are high pressing areas, and have higher absorptive power than the periphery which is a low pressing area. Therefore, the wearer can intuitively recognize the absorbent power of the absorbent article according to the number of floral patterns before wearing, and a large number of display media are arranged in the rear area, so that in the rear area A sense of security based on absorbency can be obtained. Furthermore, since a large amount of liquid is absorbed into the display element and the pressing groove that are the high-pressure squeezed region after mounting, it is possible to obtain a sense of security by visually recognizing the absorbed state after use.

  Moreover, the floral pattern part 60 and the star pattern part 61 which concern on this embodiment are the shapes extended radially from a center. Therefore, menstrual blood absorbed in the vicinity of the center of the display element can be caused to flow radially around the display element, and the absorption power of the display element as a whole can be increased. As such a radial display element, a display element of the sun pattern can be exemplified. Furthermore, since the floral pattern portion 60 and the star pattern portion 61 that are display elements have a shape surrounding a certain region, the liquid can be passed through and absorbed in the certain region surrounded.
