Vape Titanium Wire
There are a lot of different titanium uses and therefore there are a lot of different titanium options. But for vaping, there is really only a few options.
Spider Silk titanium wire is commercially pure grade 1 titanium with a technical classification of F67 – ASTM (a surgical implant application classification for TI wire). It is more than 99.5% pure, as that percentage of titanium is the lowest it can be and still retain its classification. Spider Silk titanium wire is the purest available and when used for vaping, more pure = better vaping experience.
Spider Silk TI wire does not use any acid etching and because of TI wire properties we cannot torch the wire to burn off the cutting oils.
Instead of these typical ways to clean the wire, we use a four stage cleaning process to remove as much of the cutting oils as possible:
- First we use water bath on the TI wire
- Then use an microfiber cloth soaked in an all-natural hypoallergenic soap to wipe down the wire as we spool
- Next we put a maximum of 10 spools into an ultrasonic cleaning bath of water and all-natural hypoallergenic soap for 4 minutes.
- Finally we transfer the spools into a second ultrasonic cleaning bath of isopropyl alcohol and water and after 4 minutes we take them out and set them to dry
So why don’t we use the typical process of cleaning TI wire? Acid etching titanium is used in jewelry and other applications http://www.chemcut.net/wp-content/uploads/2015/02/Etching-Titanium-with-HF-and-Nitric-Acid-Solutions-Part1.pdf. In applications where you do acid etch titanium wire, the chemical, in most cases, used is hydrofluoric acid – which can be very dangerous, especially the gas fumes https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hydrofluoric_acid . Now we do not think there is much chance of a vaper being negatively impacted by this acid, but we did not want any chance of vaping this dangerous chemical.
Beyond the acid part of etched TI wire for jewelry, the other part of etching is that it is removing a very small layer of the titanium. Now in most applications, a small layer of titanium being removed is no big deal, but for vaping these coils and when the wire is very thin and is being heated up repeatedly it will potentially allow the titanium wire to fail more quickly.
Although our process of cleaning Spider Silk titanium wire is not 100% perfect, we strive to make each vaping experience the best it can be without degrading the titanium wire or using dangerous chemicals. We are always looking to improve our process and are open to any other suggestions from the vaping community.

Spider Silk is great for temperature control devices (temp control) as well as for use on mechanical mods and other regulated and unregulated devices.
