I had a little chuckle last night when friends not from here asked (alerted me) me about comments elsewhere concerning these subjects we are dealing with. There is of course nothing I can say or do about their nasty condemnations and bullshit but I did pick out some tidbits from the FlavourArt video referenced above for these friends. I was saying the same things long before I watched this video which is only one of many that can be referenced.
Quoting the granddaddy of vape flavorings Massimo Mancini- FlavourArts owner:
On the use of PG vs VG for making concentrates:
“Because there is a chemical reason. VG is a poor solvent for flavor material. Flavor materials are mainly (apolas? unknown term to me) which means they are not water logging. So you need a solvent as PG which is safe, which is clean, and that can keep all the flavor material dissolved properly. If you do the same flavor and you use VG instead PG as a solvent, the flavor is going to separate all the time.” (37:40)
On the subject of using heat. This is from how the final mix is made at about 40 minutes in:
“So we have taken the concentrated base, we have added PG, we have added some water, we have maybe added some extra ingredients, and in this container, this one is for 800 kilos, this container is self HEATING, self mixing , and self weighting.
So heat is used for making flavor concentrates but using heat will destroy them. Uhhh, that makes lots o sense.
A motor driving a high shear mixer is pictured on the tank or “container” as he called it.
