Active Acetate Dual filter


The Active Acetate Dual filter is the industry-standard two-segment activated carbon filter. It is the filter used in many of the world’s leading carbon brands.

The filter is available in both slim and super-slim variants.

Filter construction

Consists of a tobacco and mouth segment of high-quality crimped cellulose acetate. The tobacco segment is loaded with activated carbon.

Both segments are enclosed in a plugwrap, which can be standard or porous depending. 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.

A range of configurations, lengths, circumferences, and additive loadings can be selected ensuring each construction is designed to suit taste and filtration requirements of the customer and enhance a particular brand.
