Smooth Core® Technology filter

Smoother cooler taste

The Smooth Core® Technology filter offers a state-of-the-art, unique, patent-pending new technology in carbon filters.

The innovative design precisely positions the activated carbon in the centre of the filter for a smoother, cooler taste of a carbon cigarette.

Filter construction

Consists of high-quality crimped cellulose acetate fibres, which are bonded firmly. A precise quantity of activated carbon is positioned at the centre in the distinctive pod shape. This is enclosed in an outer plugwrap, which can be standard or porous depending on ventilation requirements. All construction is achieved in a single-pass process.

The filter tip is available as standard ‘king size’ circumference with a tip length above 25mm and carbon loading between 20mg and 50mg. The pressure drop can be varied to suit preferred taste and filtration.

Features and benefits

  • Smooth taste allowing for the use of harsher tobacco
  • Reduces vapour phase and semi-volatile components in mainstream smoke
  • Affordable carbon option – single-pass production process
  • Cleaner machine running compared with industry-standard carbon filter
  • Precise active ingredient dose with injection technology
  • Mainstream smoke flows directly through the concentrated activated carbon
  • High-quality – low tip-to-tip variation in carbon additive weight
  • Uses standard tow items
  • Efficient use of materials, energy and machinery; less adhesive, less paper (plugwrap), less processing
