LIP Technologies

Our two proven coating formulas lead the industry in low ignition propensity (LIP) offerings.

About this market

Our Low Ignition Propensity (LIP) portfolio is all about safety performance and cigarette design. We invented LIP paper products not to be a marketing tool but to answer the needs of regulations implemented in 2004 in several global areas. Our pioneering products provide compliance to these regulatory requirements without compromising the important product attributes consumers prefer.


Thanks to a unique printing process, SWM has developed and fine-tuned two flagship brands, Alginex®  and Glucigen® to deliver proven solutions and to keep the subtle balance between blends, cigarette paper and filter elements to respect consumers’ brand choices.
