Title: Testing of an Alternate Smoking Material
Published: Date Unknown
Abstract: ASTM test method E2187-02b is not appropriate for measuring the ignition strength of a cigarette-shaped smoking material that does not have a tobacco column that burns during smoking. This letter reports a measurement of the relative ignition strength of this product on a scale that can be related to results using the ASTM method.
