@shugg SSV Titanium is not a off the shelf general graded titanium, not going into the fact that once it is drawn it would need to be regraded. It is a alloy that was developed specifically for vaping. That being said the temperatures needed to create titanium Dioxide (that is the dangerous one, titanium oxide is safe) are in the 1200f area, completely saturated cotton would ignite around 700-800f. So basically it is safe to use on a mech because before bad stuff is created you will get a mouth full of flame, and before that it will be really uncomfortable (painful).
Per the other negative comments related to SSV Ti or any Ti for that matter. Documents provided by so called engineers are truly unfounded, misrepresented, and misinterpreted. As an engineer myself I know when I am speaking out of turn and choose to shut my mouth when doing so, but here on the internet people can say whatever they choose and drop a few names like Boing, Cornell, BASF, 3M. Who knows what they really do, if the really work there, or what their real credentials are for all we know is that they are a parts fetcher. In emails and over the phone the owner of SSV has provided me too with documents, and based upon my own research and the transparency of SSV, that their claims are true. Also from experience of using SSV for more than a year and half I am very impressed and happy with my experience using their wire.

Folks can vape on guitar wire if they like it. Not my concern.
KISS V. said it best: "SSV Titanium is not a off the shelf general graded titanium, not going into the fact that once it is drawn it would need to be regraded. It is a alloy that was developed specifically for vaping."
It's an ALLOY!
The titanium I prefer to buy is G1, NOT an alloy.
So if you like it, price aside, then enjoy it, just don't confuse the actual differences. And I also agree with KISS V., people can post all kinds of credentials, but without proper investigation, we are forced to place our faith or not, and that's one of the reasons there is so much misinformation all over the place. I' have read all the posts on ECF concerning titanium wire, and I have made the choice to trust what I've read there, and personally choose my G1 titanium from sources like Unkamen, but more recently Temco, sources I trust. The TCR of their titanium matches my DNA mods perfectly, without the need to download any custom SSV TCR profiles, which are needed as it's an alloy. For those sensitive to other "metals" in their vapor path, you'll have to figure out if any of the alloys could be an issue for you.
Seems some may have a horse in the race here?
