The cannabis vaporizer industry has been developing significantly since the legalization of cannabis in 2018. As a result, many manufacturers compete to become top-of-mind in the industry and produce a wide variety of cannabis vaporizers to fulfill the consumer’s different demands. One of the most popular cannabis vaporizer types is the 510 thread cannabis vaporizer. So how does it gain popularity? The 510 thread cannabis vape device has a standardized connecting mechanism, making it a flexible option for the cannabis to pair cartridges and batteries from different brands.
Due to its popularity, we can effortlessly encounter various 510 thread cannabis vaporizers utilizing different materials to construct the device’s major components, including the cannabis oil tank, central post, heating core, and mouthpiece. Now, let’s dive deep into some material options you can choose to build your cannabis vaporizer components!
Depending on your manufacturing fund, you can select either food-grade PCTG or glass to be featured in your 510 thread cannabis vape devices. Plastic is a budget-friendly option compared to glass. However, it is worth mentioning that low-quality plastic from irresponsible suppliers can potentially jeopardize your consumer’s safety as its corrosive characteristic may cause contamination of the cannabis oil inside the tank when heated. Food grade PCTG is a great choice for the oil tank material without being decomposed toxins by high temperature if manufacturers are interested in using it. Meanwhile, glass is a premium material that is still relatively safer for cannabis vapers and is often used on 510. Due to its clarity and advanced visual style, a glass cannabis oil tank also offers cannabis vapers complete visibility of how much cannabis oil is left in the tank, helping them to refill their cannabis oil without hassle.
The two sought-after materials to construct the center post are metal and ceramic. However, each material has perks and shortcomings that Cilicon will break down for you!
This material is known to have high plasticity, allowing it to be effortlessly molded according to the product structure. Each metal sheet can also be riveted and knobbed to establish a more robust capping process. In addition, the conductive property of metal responds to heat better, which minimizes the risk of injuring the users due to residual heat from the vaporization process. Meanwhile, the primary disadvantage of using metal as a center post is that it risks heavy metal precipitation into the cannabis vapor. This risk is increased when a manufacturer chooses a lower-quality metal and did not pass the heavy metal test. Medical-grade stainless steel and food-grade stainless steel are two recommended metal central post metal materials to be applied on this part as they are not harmful and safe enough for people to inhale under high heat.
Ceramic is a seamless-looking material that integrates better with a 510 thread cannabis vaporizer design. Unlike metal, it also creates no risk of heavy metal precipitation, making your product a safe option for cannabis users.
At this point, ceramic sounds like the more reliable option. However, it is still categorized as an unstable sintered material with a higher thermal capacity. This characteristic brings us to the cannabis oil leaking problem, as ceramic needs more time to dissipate the heat, leading to residual heat that keep heating the cannabis oil, so potentially increasing the possibility of the leaking phenomenon. And the explosive capacity usually less powerful, the vaporizing speed is lower, which also lead to more time for preheat process. Additionally, the manufacturers need to consider the higher labor investment as ceramic is unsuitable for the cost-effective press fit capping process due to its fragile nature.
This component is the 510 thread cannabis vaporizer part that directly brushes on the cannabis vaper’s mouth. Some of the most popular material choices for a mouthpiece are plastic, wood, and ceramic, and all of them are considered as non-harmful material for people to contact in the long term.
Food-grade PCTG is considered a mainstream alternative due to its lower production cost, ease to shape, and ticking the box of most companies’ budget requirements. Meanwhile, if you want your device to be unique, wood is also a good choice as it offers a classic and old-school vibe to your 510 thread cannabis vaporizers.
Not to mention, wood’s non-conductive characteristic allows it to be constantly in cool temperatures, which means not only does it have classic visual effects, but it also has a great vaping experience because of the insulation capacity. However, if you aim to elevate your consumer’s cannabis vaping experience to the maximum extent, ceramic remains the most delicate option that provides the softest touch to the lips, insulation capacity and holistic visual effects!
This component is considered the main driver of any cannabis vape device, including the 510 thread variant. Therefore, you must select the most exemplary heating core to produce an otherworldly vaporizing performance to indulge your consumers.
Currently, most heating cores are made of ceramic due to their superior microporous characteristic that can absorb and vaporize cannabis oil efficiently. Its formulation is the primary differentiating factor between the ceramic used in one 510 thread cannabis vaporizer and another. Each type of ceramic material possesses different porosity and sintering temperatures and undergoes distinctive manufacturing processes, resulting in unique cannabis oil retention capacity, vaporizing uniformity, and even various vapor tastes. If you want to win the competition, go above and beyond in developing a leading formulation for your ceramic heating core!
While ceramic has transformed into one of the best materials to construct a 510 thread cannabis vaporizer heating core, it still possesses some flaws, like the naturally uneven surface. Aware of this imperfection, many cannabis vaporizer manufacturers have discovered a workaround by utilizing cotton-wrapped ceramic. The layer of cotton wrapped outside the ceramic’s surface helps establish uniformity in vapor absorption and production, which may become a challenge with the pure ceramic’s irregular surface. Furthermore, the cotton’s high capillarity also facilitates an optimal absorption rate of cannabis oil, preventing the cannabis oil clogging issues commonly occurring in any cannabis vape device.
Ceramics has proven to be a popular option for most cannabis vaporizer parts. As a result, many manufacturers go for a full-ceramic 510 thread cannabis vaporizer. So, what exactly is this so-called full-ceramic variant? The major components of this 510 thread cannabis vaporizer type, including the heating core, center post, and mouthpiece, are all constructed with ceramic. The primary reason for its popularity is the unprecedented anti-contamination property that ceramics offer to cannabis consumers.
The full ceramic 510 thread cannabis vape device consists of a ceramic heating core directly sintered into the ceramic center tube, creating a unified structure. However, the ceramic’s porosity of the center post should be higher than that of the heating element, as the denser ceramic can withstand more heat. This formulation ratio is to prevent the shrinkage of the ceramic heating core due to the central post’s deformation. Without adhering to this rule, a gap may appear between the center tube and heating core, leading to an increased risk of cannabis oil leaking. Thus, it’s crucial to control the formula ratio at the most optimal state to prevent some common issues.
Another popular version of the 510 thread cannabis vaporizer utilizes a ceramic heating core wrapped with a thin layer of non-woven cotton embedded in a metal center tube. This cotton layer will help the ceramic heating core stay in shape, allowing a better fit between the heating core and center post, ultimately preventing cannabis oil leaking issues. The potential risk comes when the cannabis vapers incidentally dry burn their cannabis vape devices, leading to the carbonization of the cotton layer. Many consumers are concerned about inhaling the byproduct of this chemical reaction, carbide, which is proven hazardous for humans. So for cotton-wrapped ceramic heating core to maintain a consistent flavor and non-harmful vapor, using a well-designed ceramic that comes with proper porosity is essential.
Cilicon’s take on a superior 510 thread cannabis vaporizer that promotes consumer’s safety and otherworldly vaporizing performance
