  • Patent number: 8863757
    Abstract: A process for reducing the permeability of a paper wrapper used in the construction of a smoking article is disclosed. The paper wrapper is treated with a film-forming composition that forms treated discrete areas on the wrapper. The treated discrete areas have a permeability within a predetermined range sufficient to reduce the ignition proclivity properties of a smoking article made with the wrapper. In accordance with the present invention, the film-forming composition contains a film-forming material. The film-forming material has a relatively low viscosity. In this manner, the film-forming composition can have a relatively high solids content and still be applied to the wrapper using conventional techniques, such as by using a gravure printer.

  • Publication number: 20110132382
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a cigarette paper with a coating material for Low Ignition Propensity (LIP) and a fire-safe cigarette having the same. More particularly, the present invention manufacture a cigarette paper by coating a pre-determined area with a coating material for LIP to lower a porosity of the cigarette paper, and relates to a cigarette paper which retains original flavor and taste of the cigarette and has an improved fire-safety and a cigarette having the same. The present invention provides a cigarette paper containing a coating material for LIP having an improved quality as compared to a conventional composition applicable to a fire-safe cigarette and thus capable of retaining the original flavor of the cigarette as well as having ash integrity, and cigarette having the same.
