    My aim is to compile a list of juice and flavorings that may cause problems as far as cracking polycarbonate tanks. Anything listed here may cause your polycarbonate tank to crack. I am primarily focused on the polycarbonate tanks, although this info may apply to other tanks.

    I am certainly not attempting to ban any flavors or ejuices. I'm just trying to help out some folks who continue use polycarbonate tank systems.

    ***Most, if not all, polycarbonate plastic by nature uses BPA in its manufacturing You can read about BPA leaching from plastics. Just google BPA. IMHO, it's just another good reason to move away from polycarbonate material.

    Polypropylene is my personal choice for tank tubing because it it inexpensive and durable. This is the same material that is used to make syringes. Polypropylene tubing can be purchased here: McMaster-Carr. You can use 5/8"id x 3/4od for Liquinator tanks, Lil mama tanks, Big daddy tanks, Jtanks, and others. This tubing has a very slight curve to it, but will not be noticeable when cut to a short length. You can see a pic of a tank I made using this tubing with Liquinator endcaps here: Here's a pic of my polypropylene tank

    The popular DCTanks can now be found made from polypropylene tubing. Polypropylene will not crack from a chemical reaction from using juices on this list. For some reason, most vendors are not stating the fact that these are made from polypropylene. IMO this is an excellent selling point that they are missing... These tanks can be used with some XL cartos, or they can be easily cut down to fit a standard sized carto, my personal preference, since I have a few dozen tanks, and I can't afford the pricier ones.

    Glass tanks are also a wonderful alternative.


    I am personally not familiar with the Vision Stardust type tanks. From what I hear, they are polycarbonate and folks seem to be having the same issues with cracking/frosting. I am also not familiar persoanally with Vivi Nova's, since I have found my happy place with polypropylene DCTanks.

    All of the ejuice/flavors listed below have been reported by an ecf member to cause problems for them. YMMV.

    Some of these are premixed juices, some are flavorings that DIY'ers use. Contributions have been made by myself and other members. So far we have:

    Here is the list so far. Everything listed here has caused someone a problem with a polycarbonate tank. Some have reported no issues whatsoever with some of these juices/flavorings. Use at your own risk with polycarbonate tanks.

    Thanks to ECF Veteran member Stosh for alphabetizing it for me.

    You can add Lorann's Horehound to the list. Melted a drip tip and clouded up a Vivi mini

    Go ahead and add VaporRenu Mt Dew Code Red to the list as well. I realize the Mt Dew is already on there, but I'd rather have every single item that'll melt plastic for the sake of comprehensiveness.

    It completely melted a Kanger T3 within 15 minutes. Not safe for PCB.

    High Desert Vapes Ecto Cooler melted the seam where the plastic meets the threads on a Volt Nano clearomizer. Also Applewood Tobacco from High Desert Vapes clouded a Volt nano clearomizer and left distinctive lines from filling.
