Hey guys, I am on the final stages of my repairable atty prototype and I am wanting to get the best and safest wicking material for it. I have been considering fiberglass yarn http://www.wickstore...s__1284-50.aspx , http://www.oillampma...wick.html#wicks. here is the msds on it http://www.nafaa.org/glassmsds.pdf. So my question is, Is this the stuff to use?

I did a little research and I was always led back to the Bulli A2 atomizer from Germany. It appears that no one has truly identified what material to use for a wick and if using a fiberglass material is really safe. I guess this is a use at your own risk type of answer.

I think e-cigs in general right now are use at own risk lol, but that seems to be the safest thing I have found, and the possibility of inhaling glass dust or particles once it is whetted with e-juice is infinitesimal. But I was just curious if anyone knew yet what the normal 510 atty uses?

silica rope
you want the strands to be independent from each other, when braided they dont hold as much juice and wicking is sub-par vs single strands bunched together.

http://shop.nhaler.c...d-Wires-659.htm perhaps if you contact them they might hook you up on the fiber.
