Conventional Cigarette Paper

Our proven paper-making and industry know-how allow us to meet market dynamics with a wide range of options.

Conventional Cigarette Paper

There's nothing "standard" about our cigarette papers. We produce Specialty Papers and only Specialty Papers. It's all custom work, made from pulp derived from wood, flax or a blend of both, to the exact specifications of our customers. So cigarette designers can select for factors such as air permeability and basis weight, which influence a cigarette's inherent smoking characteristics.


Our research and product development capabilities, unsurpassed in the industry, have played an important role in establishing our reputation for high quality, superior products-all made to order, including Roll Your Own (RYO) papers. In addition, our collaborative approach in working closely with our customers-to accommodate their unique requirements and parameters-enables us to offer virtually unlimited choice, including:


Pulp Type: Wood, flax, mixed pulp usage, including TCF (totally chlorine-free) capabilities.


Permeability: Need a specific degree of permeability? We're glad you asked. We offer a full range of permeability from 10 to 120 Coresta (CU).


Low Side Stream: We can also provide papers that minimize the smoke coming off an un-puffed cigarette-a characteristic highly desired in certain markets.


Perforation: Our electric perforation capability increases our permeability range to +250 CU.


Visual Differentiation: We recognize the value of tailoring product offerings through visual cues. That's why we present designers with a full range of interesting possibilities, so they can customize freely:


  • Opacity of the paper (high opacity, ultra-bright white paper improves print logo clarity).
  • Our patented High Opacity Anti-Spotting (HOPAS) process is ideal for high humidity climates.
  • Ash appearance-from white to black.
