Cigarette smoke contains a number of compounds identified as irritants and possibly toxic chemicals to living systems. These compounds though not effectively filtered by standard filters are successfully and selectively trapped by activated carbons. Haycarb offers a premium range of coconut shell based activated carbons specially processed with optimal adsorption characteristics for cigarette filters. Our activated carbons products greatly increase the retention of a wide range of vapor phase, semi volatile as well as low molecular weight contaminants in cigarette smoke including aldehydes, cyanides, ketones, hydrocarbons and pyridine among many others. The tailor made particle size distributions of these products ensures high kinetics, whilst the low dust and fine particle content prevents the contamination and discoloration of filters, and prevents contaminant leakages. The consistent product quality, performance and the accredited manufacturing process has made Haycarb activated carbons for cigarette filters globally sorted by all major markets including Japan, Asia, North and South America and Europe.
