Puracel® filter

The Puracel® filter degrades three times faster than industry-standard cellulose acetate filters*. It uses no chemical adhesives to bond the fibres.

*Tested over a 12-month period in an external environment. Samples can be ordered for own verification.

Filter construction

Consists of high-quality unbleached paper (compressed to the desired parameters) enclosed in an outer plugwrap, which can be standard or porous depending on the ventilation requirements.

The filter tip length, circumference, and pressure drop can be varied to suit taste and filtration requirements.
