How Greentank Is Leading The Way In Vape Safety
Greentank has always approached vape safety with complete transparency. We believe full disclosure of safety standards and materials is essential, and we’re proud to turn the spotlight on how and why we manufacture safer vape hardware.
The data is clear. Consumers want to know every detail about their vape pens, from complete lists of materials and ingredients to all applicable safety certifications and testing results. These days, brands cannot afford to tie the success of their extracts to hardware partners that don’t make this full suite of product information readily available.
At Greentank, we prioritize product and end-user safety over everything. We don’t simply meet regulatory requirements. We EXCEED them as we continue to lead the industry forward toward safer vaping.
And we do it in the following crucial ways:
Elite Material Sourcing
It all starts at the material level, where we employ world-renowned material scientists, procurement specialists, and a dedicated, on-the-ground team to source only the safest and highest quality materials for our hardware. These include SUS-303 stainless steel for our cartridges, food-grade ceramics for our heating cores, thermal-shock-resistant borosilicate glass for our reservoirs, and high-quality lithium-ion batteries to power our devices.
We’re able to oversee every aspect of our supply chain through the direct relationships we have with our suppliers, manufacturers, tooling providers, testing facilities, and certification agencies. This allows us to thoroughly vet our suppliers for everything from product and material quality to manufacturing conditions. It also expedites our hardware testing and certification processes, resulting in shorter lead times across the board for our partners.
Quality Control and Product Testing
Our pursuit of perfection doesn’t allow for compromises or shortcuts. We go to extreme lengths to ensure all Greentank products exceed safety and performance standards so that your customers can truly believe in what they breathe.
Once assembled, all Greentank hardware must pass multiple in-house quality control examinations and extensive heavy metal testing performed at certified testing facilities across North America. Many of our tests are conducted at Bureau of Cannabis Control certified testing facilities in California for good reason. The Golden State has the strictest heavy metal requirements in the industry, and every Greentank product tested there has been deemed heavy-metal compliant with state requirements.
We also subject our cartridges to child-resistance testing and because of that we were one of the first hardware providers in the industry to obtain child-resistance certifications for the locking mechanisms in our GT CR 0.5g cartridges. These locking mechanisms ensure unintended users cannot easily access, touch, drink, or manipulate the extracts housed in our devices. Each was tested at an American Association for Laboratory Accreditation certified testing facility and passed with 100% efficacy, making them fully compliant with Section 16 CFR § 1700.20 of the U.S. Poison Prevention Packaging Act.
Heavy metal and child-resistance certifications may be the most well known in the industry, but they are far from the only certifications we obtain for our hardware. Our devices undergo a series of other accreditations from general product certifications to more specific component certifications. We also strive to have the safest manufacturing facilities and practices in the industry. In order to best convey this information to prospective customers, we have created individual compliance packages for each one of our devices that list every pertinent certification, document and safety sheet. We also explain in simple terms what each accreditation and certification means so that our partners can fully comprehend the information listed in each package while learning more about our commitment to safety and how our products compare to the rest of the industry.
It’s no contest. Greentank is the safest and most transparent vape hardware solutions provider in the world. From universal factory and product certifications to third-party heavy metal and child-resistance testing, we are setting safety benchmarks that the rest of the industry can’t reach.
