The tobacco foil inside a cigarette pack is formed by a two-layer laminate. It is manufactured by laminating (glueing) aluminium foil on paper using starch-based dispersion adhesive. The aluminium foil used is of the thickness 0.0063 - 0.0100 mm, the paper is one or two-sided calendered paper in substances from 25 - 50 g/m2. Special high slip varnish is applied on the whole area of aluminium, ensuring good processability on high speed automatic machines. The varnish can be either transparent or in a particular colour shade. The laminate may be further decorated with embossing, either in our plant or directly in the packaging machines during cigarette packaging.
The tobacco foil is used as a cigarette pack inner liner.
