Sweet Spot Vapors - SSV Ti Wires
Product ID: 356
Sweet Spot Vapors-SSV Ti Wire is not off the shelf industrial wire, it’s made from a custom metallurgical process SSV developed with their foundry and drawing facilities. The wire contains no chromium or nickel and is certified medical grade titanium. The wire goes through a multistage vacuum annealing process that removes impurities and allows for the most consistent heating possible. SSV states their wire will not form any chromium, nickel or iron oxides so the flavor remains pure and all of the wire is cleaned in an ultrasonic/steam bath using a food safe degreaser followed by a rinse in distilled water.
WARNING : DO NOT DRY BURN Ti wire.....the wire is designed to fail above it's max temperature....dry burning is NOT necessary to form tight coils. You can apply low heat to crimp your coils (micro) through "pulsing" your mod, or using a low temperature torch. However we generally recommend "spaced" coils to allow for maximum flavor and heat dispersion. To clean your coils, it is not necessary to dry burn (wire will turn white when it has failed)...simply brush the coils off under warm water, and they will be as good as new.
The difference between 0.4mm and 0.5mm wire is the SPEED of which temp regulation occurs....neither one should be looked upon as a "gauge". It's not possible to compare to Kanthal or other similar wire, due to the way in which the wire responds to power input. Essentially 0.4mm Ti wire regulates temperature FASTER than 0.5mm, so it's ideal for VV/VW mods or tank builds....it will provide a slightly cooler vape, as the temp regulation occurs more rapidly. Ti wire 0.5mm has a slower ramp towards temperature regulation, so will build up slightly more heat in an atomizer. We recommend it for drippers with large amounts of air flow.
Ti-Wire 0.3mm starting (nominal @ 27deg C) resistance is 1.9 ohms per foot.
Ti-Wire 0.4mm starting (nominal @ 27 deg C) resistance is 1.2 ohms per foot.
Ti-Wire 0.5mm starting (nominal @ 27 deg C) resistance is 0.78 ohms per foot.
Ti-Wire 0.6mm starting (nominal @ 27 deg C) resistance is 0.56 ohms per foot.
