Cigarette Specialty 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.
