Along with the rising popularity and prevalence of temp-control devices, the need for rebuilding wire that performs well (and safely) on those devices has increased dramatically. One thing that seems sure is that temperature control devices and titanium rebuilding wire are not only on the rise, but are here to stay.
When the majority of Vapers use their temperature controlled devices, they automatically reach for their Nickel wire. It’s been the most widely used and prevalent wire in the temp-control community. Titanium wire is here to change that.
Here at Envy Electronic Cigarettes, we wanted a wire that could be used on temp-control devices, variable wattage devices, and mechanical mods alike. A wire that was cleaner than any other currently on the market. We wanted a wire that was malleable enough to be ultra-easy to work with, but could stand up to daily use over time. Finally, we wanted a wire with a low enough resistance to please cloud chasers and flavor junkies alike. So we created Spider Silk Titanium Wire.
While Titanium has been used sporadically with temp-control devices in the past, no company had produced a quality wire worthy of rivaling and overtaking Nickel wire on temp-control devides. Not only does titanium perform very similarly to Nickel on many temp-control devices, but it has other benefits that Nickel does not or cannot offer.
Spider Silk Titanium rebuilding wire not only has an ultra-low resistance (one third that of Kanthal), but it is easier to build with than Nickel. Nickel coils are hard to maintain due to how malleable the metal is. Titanium coils hold their shape longer and stand up to wear and tear better than Nickel, while still being malleable enough so that to never have to worry about an unevenly spaced coil.
Nickel wire is known to affect a good number of vapers who have an allergic reaction to the metal. Titanium wire virtually takes care of that issue. Titanium Wire is also safer to vape on than Nickel wire. When Titanium wire is dry burned (which should not be done as it effects the resistance of the wire), Titanium Oxide is developed. On temp-control devices the development of Titanium Dioxide will not happen, but when using a variable wattage device or mechanical mod, proper wicking and coil saturation will also stop Titanium Oxide from developing on the coils.
OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) lists their safe exposure limits in the air to be 1mg/cubic meter for Nickel and 15mg/cubic meter for Titanium Dioxide. That means it takes 15 times more Titanium Dioxide than Nickel to even get close to something that could be considered harmful to a vaper. Keeping titanium coils wicked and cotton saturated will stop any titanium dioxide from developing on the coils, and allow you to use the same coil and getting great flavor and vapor for weeks
Temp-control devices and titanium wire are here to stay. It’s only a matter of time before the
