    Paper filters – the influence of different paper compositions and paper properties on filtration efficiency and pressure drop

    BACHMANN S.; GLEINSER M.; VOLGGER D.
    delfortgroup AG, Traun, Austria
    Smoke yields, smoke composition and the taste of a cigarette can be modified by changing different parts of the cigarette, especially the different filter design. Cellulose acetate is currently the most common material for cigarette filters, but also ...

    Plasma perforation of tipping paper: selected benefits for cigarette consumption

    LINDNER M.(1); RAUNIC VADANJEL R.(2)
    (1) TANNPAPIER GmbH, Traun, Austria; (2) TDR d.o.o., Rovinj, Croatia
    Plasma perforation represents an advanced technology for the generation of pre-perforated tipping paper. During the perforation process within an inert gas environment, a so-called low-temperature plasma triggers local micro-evaporation events on the ...

    Using residual length data to estimate the rate of self-extinguishment of banded cigarettes

    EITZINGER B.(1); RIVAS CANO A.(2)
    (1) delfortgroup AG, Traun, Austria; (2) JT International Germany GmbH, Trier, Germany
    For non-banded lower ignition propensity (LIP) cigarettes the residual length of extinguished cigarettes has been shown to be useful to more precisely estimate the rate of self-extinguishment compared to just counting self-extinguished cigarettes (ISO ...

    Comparison of Full Length Burn testing according to ISO 12863 and the proposed alternative by NIST Laboratories, USA

    MAYR M.
    Papierfabrik Wattens GmbH & Co. KG / delfortgroup AG, Wattens, Austria
    NIST Laboratories USA proposed to use a thin stainless steel substrate plus one layer of filter paper instead of the 10 layers, as defined in ASTM E.2187-09 and ISO 12863 for measuring the percentage of Full Length Burn on Lower Ignition Propensity (LIP) ...
