Producing less damaging alternatives to cigarettes

Cigarette smoke contains pure nicotine, whether you are using the traditional cigarettes (ειδη καπνιστού) or stogies (πουρα )a natural component in tobacco included in cigarette boxes (ταμπακιερα ), and several hazardous chemicals. These contaminants– not the nicotine– are the main cause of smoking-related illness. We are creating alternative products to cigarettes, which consist of nicotine and also use a satisfactory preference to present grown-up cigarette smokers, but without the smoke.

We’ve focused on 2 means to do that, both of which remove the burning (burning) of tobacco. The very first is to heat tobacco to create a flavorful nicotine-containing vapour while substantially minimizing the degrees of damaging chemicals in the vapour. The other way is to produce a nicotine-containing vapour without using tobacco. And this is just the beginning.
Holding an iQOS
Warmed Cigarette Products

With intensive r & d, we have managed to create two development warmed tobacco items which both heat cigarette in a distinctive means.

Thanks to sophisticated electronic devices, our Cigarette Heating System (THS) warms particularly prepared as well as mixed cigarette to just below 350 ° C, without combustion, fire, ash, or smoke. This generates a flavorful nicotine-containing vapour, launching truth preference of heated cigarette. Considering that there is no burning procedure, the levels of dangerous chemicals are significantly reduced compared to cigarette smoke. This is what makes this smoke-free item highly appealing to smokers, with millions of consumers already having made the switch.

The heater deals with 3 major parts, a cigarette stick, a holder, and a battery charger. The customer simply inserts the cigarette stick inside the owner, where it is heated up by an electronic heating blade. The consumer then makes use of the tobacco stick. Once it is ended up, the customer eliminates the stick from the holder, and it can be disposed of safely in a waste container. When required, the customer reenergizes the holder by putting it into the charger.

Our other warmed tobacco item utilizes an alternative source of warm to essence tobacco flavours and also nicotine from cigarette leaves. It is carbon-heated and also has a look and really feel comparable to a cigarette, without being one. The carbon warmth resource at the end of is fired up. Warmth is then transferred to a distinctively refined cigarette plug. The consumer puffs on the item to breathe in a flavorful nicotine-containing vapour till completion of the experience. The copyrighted design avoids the tobacco from burning.
System 2: TEEPS
Products without Tobacco

We are likewise developing 2 item systems which contain pure nicotine however not tobacco. These tobacco-free products generate a nicotine-containing vapour in clearly various means.

One product platform heats up an e-liquid containing nicotine and also flavours with an electric heater to produce an e-vapour. This system includes numerous e-cigarettes that are presently offered in the U.K., Spain and also Israel. It likewise includes our future generation e-vapour product.

The heating technology of this innovative item utilizes a metal mesh with tiny holes to heat up a pre-filled, pre-sealed e-liquid cartridge that contains pure nicotine as well as flavours to generate a vapour. It likewise includes puff-activated heating as well as a low-liquid level discovery system that guarantees the uniformity and also high quality of the vapour created and also inhaled. These renovations attend to the current problems of grown-up customers of vaping items in regard to high quality, security, uniformity, and also origin. We introduced a city test of this platform, in addition to four brand-new one-of-a-kind e-liquid flavour deals, in the U.K. in November 2016.

The other item system is developed based upon modern technology that we acquired in 2011. Products in this group reproduce the feeling as well as ritual of cigarette smoking without tobacco and without burning.Unlike an e-cigarette, this product generates a nicotine-containing vapour in the form of a nicotine salt. When a consumer makes use of the mouth piece, a chemical reaction in between nicotine (a weak base) and also a weak natural acid occurs to create a vapor including pure nicotine salt.
