E-liquid or e-juice is a liquid that contains nicotine, commonly used as an alternative to cigarettes. It is usually sold in bottles and can be refilled with e-liquid from the same brand of e-liquid.
E-liquids come in a variety of flavors, such as tobacco, fruit, and candy, but the most common flavors are menthol, vanilla, and chocolate.
Is E-Liquid Flammable?
Yes, e-liquid is flammable.
E-liquid is a combination of propylene glycol (PG), vegetable glycerin (VG), nicotine, and flavoring. These ingredients are the same as the ones used in foods and medications. When heated, they release toxic compounds such as formaldehyde and acetone.
These ingredients can be harmful to your health if you inhale them. If you heat e-liquid in a vape pen or other device, these chemicals can reach high temperatures and cause serious burns.
What Happens If You Heat Up E-Liquid?
E-liquid typically contains propylene glycol and/or vegetable glycerin (VG), both of which are organic liquids that can be flammable. They are also considered to be toxic to humans.
This means that when you heat up e-liquid, it becomes a more toxic substance with the potential to cause severe burns or even death if you are exposed to it at high temperatures.
E-liquid has the same properties as any other type of flammable liquid, so if you decide to store your e-cigarettes on or near your heater or oven, then this could cause an explosion if exposed to heat over time.
