Recess filter

The Recess filter offers a unique end appearance for cigarettes. It can be used for one- or two-segment filters and is an effective way to differentiate a product or extend an existing brand family.

Filter construction

Comprising one or two segments with a recess at the mouth end, these segments can form any filter construction, such as a segment loaded with activated carbon. Typically, the single filter and mouth segment of the dual filter consist of high-quality crimped cellulose acetate.

Both segments are enclosed in standard or porous plugwrap. Alternatively, the mouth segment can use non-wrapped acetate for a high-quality end appearance which is longer than the segments to create the recess. The filter is wrapped in an outer plugwrap, which is stiff and specially designed to ensure excellence. It can be standard or porous depending on ventilation requirements.

A range of configurations, lengths, circumferences, additive loadings and types are available ensuring each construction is designed to enhance brand and suit customer taste and filtration requirements.
