Super Slim CPS™ Dual filter

Unique end appearance

The Super Slim CPS™ Dual filter is designed to give the cigarette a unique end appearance but also offers enhanced tar and nicotine retention without the need for increased draw resistance or higher ventilation. The inclusion of an activated carbon segment in the dual format further improves filter performance.

Filter construction

Consists of high-quality crimped cellulose acetate fibres bonded firmly. This is first enclosed by an embossed semi-crêpe paper inner wrap, giving the fluted appearance, then wrapped in a standard or porous outer plugwrap depending on ventilation requirements.

The flutes can be presented at the mouth end for a distinctive end appearance, or at the tobacco end, to mirror a standard mono-acetate end. 

As smoke flows through the filter, it naturally follows the path of least resistance along the flutes. Smoke is drawn through the paper at the end of embossed flutes. This ‘cross flow filtration mechanism’ increases filter efficiency giving a higher level of tar and nicotine retention.
