    My aim is to compile a list of juice and flavorings that may cause problems as far as cracking, fogging, or etching polycarbonate tanks. Anything listed here may cause your polycarbonate tank to be damaged. 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 or any of the clearomizer types. From what I hear, they are polycarbonate and folks seem to be having the same issues with cracking/frosting. I am also not familiar personally 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 at least one 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. 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.

    I have had Dekang Red Bull crack a CE2 style clearo.

    Also, ECBlends Black Cherry Cola (custom soda fountain blend) cracked a CE4.

    Thanks for another great thread, Baditude. Wish I had found it before I tried honeysuckle in my brand new Unique Luckily I had quartz tubes on order already.

    Yes. They are polycarbonate.
    Virtually any clear plastic tank or clearo is polycarbonate and will crack with certain juices.
    The frosted plastic ones, which you don't see much of, are polypropylene. Polyprop doesn't crack.

    Here is a pic of what happens when I use any of the following juices. I use those flavors in a device that has no plastic. This was not from heat either. The clero in the pic was not even put on a batt. I had Ginger in it for 5 min. and it did that without taking one single Vape. filled it and within 5 min. melted the tip into a gooy mess.
    Ginger
    Fennel
    Lilac
    Spearmint
    Lavender
    Angelica
    Rosmary

    Some plastics used for tank caps and such are susceptible, and are affected as well. I have had reports of melted plastic endcaps from the same flavorings or juices that crack polycarbonate. I have experienced melted plastic endcaps on DCTanks with TPA blueberry and blueberry extra. Delrin caps are not affected.

    Commenting so I can find this thread again. Thank you. This is something I knew nothing about.

    Total spent to date on all vaping supplies is $568.69. I think I'm set for a long time.
