Active Paper™ filter

The Active Paper™ filter combines the characteristics of three different filtration materials with the benefit of added activated carbon to provide a filter with a high level of tar and nicotine retention.

Filter construction

Consists of two segments: the tobacco segment is constructed with paper on to which an activated carbon material has been applied, while the mouth segment is high-quality crimped cellulose acetate.

Both segments are enclosed in a plugwrap, which can be standard or porous depending on ventilation requirements. Alternatively, the mouth segment can use non-wrapped acetate for a high-quality end appearance. The filter segments are wrapped in an outer plugwrap, which can also be standard or porous depending on ventilation requirements.

Features and benefits

  • Flexibility to balance the taste and smoothness of the tobacco with quality filtration performance to suit the customer’s requirements
  • High tar and nicotine retention
  • Bio-friendly filter with a bio-friendly taste
  • The activated carbon resulting a reduction of vapour phase and semi-volatile components in mainstream smoke for a given tar delivery without increased levels of ventilation
  • Paper segment degrades quicker than segments constructed with cellulose acetate
  • Build brand identity through the use of activated carbon
