    Influence of cigarette paper permeability, basis weight and citrate level on the smoke yields in a flue-cured Chinese design

    LE BEC L.; LE MOIGNE C.
    SWM International, Le Mans, France
    Cigarette paper is one of the tools that can be used to reduce certain smoke constituents of cigarettes. The reduction of the CO/tar ratio is an important objective for Chinese flue-cured cigarettes, most of them not being filter ventilated. In order to ...

    Influence of base paper citrate and filler amount and of band diffusion on smoke deliveries, ASTM and FASE

    LOUREAU J.M.; LE BEC L.; KRAKER T.; LE MOIGNE C.; WANNA J.; LE BOURVELLEC G.
    SWM Intl, Research Dpt, Le Mans, France
    Having a tool that can predict both smoke deliveries and fire propensity test results has become necessary because of tobacco regulations, and acceptability to the consumer. The work presented in this paper is a systematic study on the role of base paper ...

    Influence on filters containing specific additives and synthetic fibers on selected Hoffmann analytes

    LE MOIGNE C.; DUROT N.; LE BOURVELLEC G.; LOUREAU J-M.
    Schweitzer Mauduit International, Usine Le Mans, Allonnes, France
    Regarding upcoming regulations, non conventional filters can be interesting tools to selectively reduce Hoffmann analytes from the smoke. In this scope, we have studied the influence of filters containing specific additives and different types of ...

    Using diffusion measurements to predict the ignition propensity of cigarettes

    LOUREAU J.M.; KRAKER T.; LE MOIGNE C.; SNOW L.; WANNA J.
    Schweitzer-Mauduit International, Papeteries de Mauduit, Quimperlé, France
    The dominant technology used on cigarette paper to help reduce the ignition propensity of cigarettes is to apply bands of a coating material to the cigarette paper. The role of these bands is to reduce the burn intensity of the cigarette as the combustion ...

    Market survey: study on the cigarette designs used in Europe

    LE MOIGNE C.; RAVERDY-LAMBERT D.; TARDIF N.; LOUREAU J.M.; LE BOURVELLEC G.
    LTR Industries (SWM Intl.), Le Mans, France
    Two market surveys were done, in 2000 and in 2005, which consisted in analyzing the major brands sold in 15 Western European countries. The principle was to analyze for each selected country a number of brands representing 60 to 70% of the domestic ...

    Paper tools to reduce formaldehyde and other carbonyl compounds in cigarette mainstream smoke

    LOUREAU J.M.; JOYEUX T.; LE BEC L.; LE BOURVELLEC G.; LE MOIGNE C.
    Papeteries de Mauduit, Quimperlé, France
    Carbonyl compounds and in particular formaldehyde are major oxidation by-products of combustion processes of tobacco during smoking. These compounds are generated in both mainstream and sidestream smoke. Several studies showed that the amount of ...
