The Flavour Thread™ filter provides an effective method of adding flavours to cigarettes to enhance the tobacco blend or extend the range of the existing brand.
The thread can be coloured to communicate the enhanced taste and build brand equity.
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 depending on ventilation requirements.
Flavours, such as apple, coffee, menthol, orange, peach and strawberry, are added precisely by embedding a specially developed thread in the cellulose acetate or paper and diffused uniformly. They can be coloured to suit branding and higher loadings are achievable using multiple threads.
The new and improved positioning and control of the level of flavouring ensures the flavour is diffused uniformly throughout the body of the filter and is easily taken up by the smoke stream.
The filter tip length, circumference, pressure drop, flavour strength and type can be varied to suit taste and filtration requirements.
