Developing less harmful options to cigarettes

Cigarette smoke consists of nicotine, whether you are making use of the classic cigarettes (ειδη καπνιστου) or stogies (πουρα )a natural component in cigarette included in cigarette boxes (ταμπακίερα ), and numerous harmful chemicals. These toxic substances– not the pure nicotine– are the main reason for smoking-related illness. We are developing alternate products to cigarettes, which contain pure nicotine and also provide an adequate preference to present adult cigarette smokers, but without the smoke.

We’ve concentrated on two methods to do that, both of which eliminate the burning (combustion) of cigarette. The initial is to warm tobacco to generate a tasty nicotine-containing vapour while considerably reducing the degrees of hazardous chemicals in the vapour. The other method is to produce a nicotine-containing vapour without making use of tobacco. And this is simply the start.
Holding an iQOS
Heated Cigarette Products

With intensive r & d, we have actually handled to develop two innovation heated tobacco products which both warmth cigarette in a distinct means.

Thanks to innovative electronic devices, our Tobacco Heating Unit (THS) heats up particularly ready as well as blended tobacco to just listed below 350 ° C, without combustion, fire, ash, or smoke. This produces a tasty nicotine-containing vapour, launching truth preference of warmed cigarette. Considering that there is no burning process, the degrees of unsafe chemicals are significantly lowered compared to cigarette smoke. This is what makes this smoke-free product very interesting cigarette smokers, with millions of consumers currently having actually made the switch.

The heating system collaborates with 3 main elements, a cigarette stick, a holder, and also a charger. The customer just inserts the tobacco stick inside the owner, where it is heated up by an electronic heating blade. The customer after that draws on the cigarette stick. Once it is finished, the customer gets rid of the stick from the holder, and also it can be dealt with safely in a waste container. When needed, the customer charges the holder by placing it into the charger.

Our other heated cigarette product utilizes an alternate source of heat to essence cigarette flavours as well as pure nicotine from cigarette leaves. It is carbon-heated as well as looks and feel similar to a cigarette, without being one. The carbon heat resource at the end of is fired up. Heat is then moved to a distinctly processed cigarette plug. The consumer smokes on the product to breathe in a tasty nicotine-containing vapour until completion of the experience. The copyrighted layout prevents the tobacco from burning.
Platform 2: TEEPS
Products without Tobacco

We are likewise establishing two item systems that contain pure nicotine yet not tobacco. These tobacco-free items generate a nicotine-containing vapour in distinctly different methods.

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

The heating technology of this ingenious item utilizes a metal mesh with little openings to heat a pre-filled, pre-sealed e-liquid cartridge which contains nicotine and also flavours to generate a vapour. It additionally includes puff-activated home heating and also a low-liquid level discovery system that ensures the uniformity as well as high quality of the vapour created and also inhaled. These improvements deal with the existing problems of adult customers of vaping items in connection with quality, security, uniformity, as well as origin. We released a city test of this platform, along with four brand-new distinct e-liquid flavour offers, in the U.K. in November 2016.

The other product system is created based on innovation that we got in 2011. Products in this group reproduce the feel and routine of smoking without cigarette and also without burning.Unlike an e-cigarette, this item produces a nicotine-containing vapour in the form of a nicotine salt. When a consumer makes use of the mouth piece, a chemical reaction between nicotine (a weak base) and a weak natural acid happens to create a vapor having nicotine salt.
