1001806350 Page 12 of41 Dr. R. B. Seligman February. 250 1964 R. N. Thomson Trip to Eastman Chemical Company For purposes of coaparison I have sqnaoarized the efiort expended in various areas at Philip Morri.s R & D and at the Eastman organization ia Table II. A]otable in this su=ary is the great discrepancy in available machine beds and the high.ratio (1:1) of development helpess or technicians to pro- £essionals at Eastman. Their ability to throw in large members of workers to build priority items is an extremely advantagous position to be in. Zncidentally the personnel cited do not include analytical servica personnel in either case. Mr. Burns related that the Research and Development work receives prioritg for services at Eastman. - 8 - GEN 691974 L«_.ii.._. .._ a a« n: onnrm-inmvncacnr~zaz o/~o/ost

Burns auestioned us concerning flavor evaluation~ i.e, how do pou evaluate ci.garettes for flavor. we mentioned that special panels were set up for this type of evaluation. He said that if they decide ta get into this-type of work that they might.wish to t.aT.k to us further as to techniquesj etc. He also mer[tioned "carbon" taste indicated that it was commmn. knno-aledge that everyone is having trouble with the taste associated with carbon in filters. We did not ofter any cor.mcnts in this area. /ad ce: Mr. L. L. Lang http://www.pmdocs.com/getallimg.asp?DOCID=1001806350/6363 9/22/98

1001806350 Page 6 of'-1j ~ . Dr. R. B. Seligvu.n February 25,-1964 R. N, Thomson Trip to Eastman Chemical Company Sd/53p000 has been the basic tow utilized in this pro- cess and the development people feel that there.is a TPNf eff iciency advantage over the other processes (no actual figures were cited, however). The pLugs appeared firm withaut the triacetin plasticizer. The highhest.carbon loading to date with the slurry process has been approxi- mately 70 mg carbon/10 mr.i section. Not much work has been done with lower denier tow (3-5 dpf), but there has been some indication that fine Silaments pick back onto the top coating roll. Finer denier tow picka up more w'ater from the•slurry. If the water cont'ent is too high going intq the- overwrap paper there is a tendency for tLte plug to bow. I tried to get Eastman personnel to express their pre- fercnca of the pzocesses, but.they couldn't agree among themselves. I have sucmnarized; in TabLe I what appears to be the advantages and disadvantages of the three processes. In my oPinion the flotation proceys would Lend• itself readily to the application o8 such items as Polyox and starcht and the slurry process looks very good for carbon addition despite the added space and drying required (added power for dry~,r~,a would be less than 0.5q/L00a pLugs at commercial speed).
