DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION
Hereinafter, the absorbent article of the present invention will be described in detail.
In the absorbent article of the present invention, the absorbent has a first absorbent layer having a specific superabsorbent polymer (A) and a second absorbent layer having a specific superabsorbent polymer (B), The superabsorbent polymer (A) and the superabsorbent polymer (B) are not substantially mixed.
Here, “substantially not mix” means that the superabsorbent polymers (A) and (B) do not interfere with each other.
In this way, in order to achieve a “substantially not mixed” configuration, as described later, at least one of the first absorbent layer and the second absorbent layer is composed of the superabsorbent polymer (A) or the above. A fiber in which the superabsorbent polymer (B) is formed by mixing with a hydrophilic fibrous base material, or the first absorbent layer and the second absorbent layer are made of a fibrous base material. It is preferable to have a structure in which the layers are separated and laminated with each other through a shaped base layer.
Further, the first absorbent layer is constituted only by the superabsorbent polymer (A), the second absorbent layer is constituted only by the superabsorbent polymer (B), and the first absorbent layer and the second absorbent layer are constituted. You may laminate | stack a layer. In this case, although it is difficult to completely separate the superabsorbent polymer (A) and the superabsorbent polymer (B), they do not impair each other's characteristics even if there are some mixed parts. It can be said that it is “substantially not mixed” in a mixed state of a degree. For example, a portion in which the superabsorbent polymer (B) of less than 30 wt% is mixed in the first absorbent layer (near the interface with the second absorbent layer) with respect to the total amount of the superabsorbent polymer (A) (particularly, Even if there is an interface portion), it can be said that it is in a state of “substantially not mixing” if it is at this level.
[0009]
The specific superabsorbent polymer (A) used in the present invention is a superabsorbent polymer having the following property (1).
[0010]
(1) Liquid passage time [Closing the superabsorbent polymer 0.5 g in a cylinder with a cross-sectional area of 4.91 cm 2 (inner diameter 25 mmφ) and an openable / closable cock (inner diameter 4 mmφ) at the bottom. Fill with physiological saline, swell the superabsorbent polymer with the physiological saline until it reaches saturation, and after the swelled superabsorbent polymer settles, open the cock and allow 50 ml of physiological saline to pass through. The time required for 50 ml of the physiological saline to pass through is 20 seconds or less, preferably 2 to 15 seconds. When the liquid passage time exceeds 20 seconds, gel blocking occurs, so that the absorption performance decreases.
[0011]
The superabsorbent polymer (A) is not particularly limited as long as it satisfies the above-mentioned characteristics (1). Specific examples include sodium polyacrylate and (acrylic acid-vinyl alcohol) copolymer. , Cross-linked poly (sodium acrylate), (starch-acrylic acid) graft polymer, (isobutylene-maleic anhydride) copolymer and saponified product thereof, potassium polyacrylate, and cesium polyacrylate.
In order to satisfy the condition (1), for example, a crosslink density gradient is provided on the surface of the superabsorbent polymer particles, or the superabsorbent polymer particles are non-spherical amorphous particles. More specifically, the method described in JP-A-7-18495, column 7 line 28 to column 9 line 6 can be used.
[0012]
The superabsorbent polymer (A) has a physiological water absorption of 25 g / g or more, more preferably 35 to 65 g / g, by the centrifugal dehydration method. Here, the “water absorption amount by centrifugal dehydration method” is measured as follows.
<Water absorption by centrifugal dehydration of super absorbent polymer>
1 g of the superabsorbent polymer was swollen with 150 ml of physiological saline for 30 minutes, then placed in a 250 mesh nylon mesh bag, dehydrated with a centrifuge at 143 G for 10 minutes, and the total weight after dehydration was measured. Subsequently, the amount of water absorption (g / g) by centrifugal dehydration was calculated according to the mathematical formula shown in [Formula 1] below.
[0013]
[Expression 1]
[0014]
The specific superabsorbent polymer used in the present invention is a superabsorbent polymer having the following property (2).
[0015]
(2) The physiological water absorption rate by the DW method is 5 g / 30 sec / 0.3 g or more, preferably 6 to 15 g / 30 sec / 0.3 g.
[0016]
When the water absorption rate is less than 5 g / 30 seconds / 0.3 g, the stock capacity of excreta due to the rapid absorption of the water-absorbing polymer itself decreases, and the amount of fibrous base material used cannot be reduced.
[0017]
Moreover, the water absorption rate by the DW method will be described later (see the description of the examples).
[0018]
The superabsorbent polymer (B) is not particularly limited as long as it satisfies the above (2). Specifically, for example, polyacrylic acid soda, (acrylic acid-vinyl alcohol) copolymer, poly Examples include sodium acrylate cross-linked product, (starch-acrylic acid) graft copolymer, (isobutylene-maleic anhydride) copolymer and saponified product thereof, potassium polyacrylate, and cesium polyacrylate. Can be used.
[0019]
The use ratio of the superabsorbent polymer (A) to the superabsorbent polymer (B) is a weight ratio (a ratio when the total amount of both is 100), and the superabsorbent polymer (A): superabsorbent polymer. polymer (B) = 8 0~50: you 20 to 50. When the use ratio of the superabsorbent polymer (A) exceeds 90, the stock capacity of excretory liquid decreases, and when it is less than 30, gel blocking occurs and the absorption performance decreases. Is preferred.
[0020]
