IQOS, an alternative to cigarette
At Philip Morris International, we developed a n alternative to cigarette backed by our IQOS HeatControl ™ Technology.
Heating vs. Burning
Heating tobacco, rather than burning it, may seem like a small change - but it redefines the tobacco experience. When you light a cigarette, the tobacco burns at more than 800°C at the tip, creating smoke and ash. IQOS heats tobacco to a temperature up to 350°C, releasing the true tobacco flavour and nicotine without burning the tobacco.
