But the slim and super slim ranges are likewise increasingly popular, explains sales and marketing di- rector, Hywel Thomas, as both Nemuno Banga and ARD Fil- ters, also observe. Essentra engages in extensive r&d work to serve tobacco firms' filter requirements and at the same time address newly emerging consumer trends. And its efforts really show. Just a few months ago, the company launched the Corinthian as the latest addition to its Icon range of filters. The Corinthian is an ex- traordinarily complex multi-segmented product featuring fluted recesses along the length of its CA core. Think of the marble columns of Athens' ancient Parthenon temple and you get the picture. It complements other exclusive filter types within the Icon range, including – but not restricted to – Autograph (featur- ing a thick extruded CA thread at its center), Insight (composed of two filter segments surrounding a cavity containing colored activated carbon granules), and Twin Tec, which uses two differ- ent material types in a coaxial configuration and with a shaped section forming the central core. "Essentra works with customers on collaborative develop- ments and also works proactively to develop our own propri- etary products to sell to the market," said Thomas. "As we have our own market research team, we can understand the industry pulse and develop the most appropriate filters to meet our customers' tastes and needsThe filters market [today] is so dynamic that we must continue to be a full solutions pro- vider able to manufacture, test, and develop products in line Super slim filter rods photos courtesy of Nemuno Banga LLC
