Title (EN) FLAVOUR CAPSULE FOR ENHANCED FLAVOUR DELIVERY IN CIGARETTES
(FR) CAPSULE PARFUMEE POUR RENFORCER L'AROME DE CIGARETTES
Abstract: front page image
(EN)Improved delivery of additive materials to cigarettes is provided through the use of one or more capsules (10) containing additive materials, such as flavor components, in the filter section (40) of a cigarette. The sealed capsule or capsules are subjected to an external force, such as squeezing, by a smoker prior to or during smoking of the cigarette in order to release at least a portion of the additive material from the one or more capsules and expose the additive material to mainstream smoke passing through the filter. The sealed capsules provide a barrier between the additive materials and other cigarettes components, such as sorbents or filter materials, in order to reduce additive material migration into the other cigarette components prior to desired use.
(FR)L'invention concerne un mode amélioré de distribution de matériaux additifs dans des cigarettes, par le biais d'une ou de plusieurs capsules (10) contenant des matériaux additifs, comme des constituants de parfum, dans la partie filtre (40) d'une cigarette. La ou les capsule(s) scellée(s) sont soumises à l'action d'une force extérieure, comme un écrasement, par un fumeur, avant de fumer une cigarette ou pendant cet intervalle, afin de libérer au moins une partie du matériau additif d'une ou de plusieurs capsules et d'exposer ledit matériau additif au flux de fumée central traversant le filtre. Les capsules scellées produisent une barrière entre les matériaux additifs et d'autres constituants de cigarettes, comme des sorbants ou des matières filtrantes, afin de réduire la migration de matériau additif dans les autres constituants de la cigarette, avant le moment de consommation voulu.
