    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...

    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...

    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...

    Characterisation and influence of the porous structure of cigarette paper on CO deliveries

    LOUREAU J.M.; JOYEUX T.; LE MOIGNE C.; LE BOURVELLEC G.
    Papeteries de Mauduit, Quimperlé, France
    The influence of cigarette paper on CO deliveries has been described in a number of studies. Two mechanisms play a major role: dilution and diffusion through the cigarette paper. The dilution is dependant on air permeability. The diffusion is...

    Hoffmann analytes: Influence of cigarette paper and filter ventilation

    LOUREAU J.M.; BIESSE J.P.; CLARISSE G.; VIDAL B.; DUMERY B.; LE MOIGNE C.; LE BEC L.; LE BOURVELLEC G.
    Papeteries de Mauduit, Quimperlé, France; Altadis, Les Aubrais, France
    Having a tool that can predict the Hoffmann analytes has become necessary, not only because of regulations, but also as a reference for the chemical composition of smoke for the Potential Reduced Exposure Products (PREPs). The work presented in...
