Autograph™ filter

Shaped, coloured thread

The Autograph™ filter consists of a thick, extruded cellulose acetate thread positioned in the centre of the filter. The thread can be shaped in a number of ways and is available in a wide range colours to match any brand.

The extruded thread can be up to 2.5mm wide.

Filter construction

Consists of an acetate filter with a flavoured additive, and constructed using high-quality crimped cellulose acetate fibres that are bonded firmly. This is enclosed in an outer plugwrap, which can be standard or non-porous.

The specially developed extruded cellulose acetate thread, which can be shaped and coloured to suit the brand, is embedded into the filter and positioned centrally.

Filter tip length, circumference, pressure drop, flavour strength and type, extruded cellulose acetate shape and colour can be varied to suit taste and filtration requirements.
