Cigarettes

Not all cigarettes are the same. Smokers around the world prefer many different tastes and strengths and our company aim
for excellence in every step of manufacturing.

Our company works to understand the preferences of adult consumers and to design cigarettes to meet them. It's the preferences of adult consumers that guide our tobacco blends – the mix of tobaccos that we use – and we work to ensure that these grades are available long-term to keep the tastes of our products consistent.

Nicotine is not added in making cigarettes. It occurs naturally in all varieties of tobacco plants, with differente percentage for each one for instance virginya contains more nicotine rather than turkish, also it depends on the way tobacco is cured. For more information see About Tobacco page.

The filter, paper and level of filter ventilation are all chosen to affect the sensory strength and smoke yield of the cigarette. At each stage, there is constant quality control and testing.

Main parts of a cigarette

Cigarettes have four basic components:

1- The tobacco rod 2- The cigarette paper 3- The tipping paper 4- The filter

* The tobacco rod includes tobacco blend. * The cigarette paper includes paper and adhesive. * The tipping paper includes paper and adhesive. * The filter is made mainly from cellulose acetate fibres, known as tow. Cellulose acetate is derived from wood pulp. The filter is wrapped in paper and sealed with a line of adhesive. Charcoal is added to filters, in order to decrease the amount of chemicals absorbed by the lungs.

Design adjustments achieve different strengths and tastes, and can reduce smoke yields of various smoke components, as measured by a standardised machine method.

What happens when a cigarette burns

To understand cigarette design, it helps to know how a cigarette burns. It is the combustion process – the burning of the cigarette – that produces tar. If hay were burned instead of tobacco, it would also produce a type of tar. When an item burns, it produces tiny particles mixed with gases – this is smoke. A cigarette filter traps some of these particles.

When a smoker puffs on a cigarette, whole smoke, including both fine particles and gases, is sucked through the tobacco rod and the filter. Gases pass through the filter and some particles are trapped in it. It is this particulate matter, minus nicotine and water, that is called tar.

Health risks of smoking

Smoking poses real risks of serious diseases. That's why we are working to develop products that may be recognised as less harmful.
