Title: Elastic composite having dual elasticized regions, and a system and method for making the elastic composite

Abstract: This elastic composite includes a base layer having a pair of side edges and a longitudinal centerline spaced inwardly from the side edges, and a first elastic construction supported by the base layer. The first elastic construction includes a first plurality of spaced apart elastic elements and a first top layer extending over the first elastic construction. The elastic composite also includes a second elastic construction supported by the base layer. The second elastic construction includes a second plurality of spaced apart elastic elements and a second top layer extending over the elastic construction. The first and second top layers are spaced apart and the first and second elastic constructions are spaced apart, so as to define a central non-elasticized region between the first and second elastic constructions.
