Super Slim Flavour Thread™ filter

The Super Slim 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.

Filter construction

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.

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 by using multiple threads.
