Safety and Anodization in Packa Design Products

Is it Safe to Smoke Out of Aluminum?

At Packa Design, we understand the concern surrounding the safety of smoking out of aluminum. We'd like to address this by distinguishing between raw aluminum and anodized aluminum.

Raw Aluminum vs. Anodized Aluminum

Raw aluminum, when exposed to heat, can pose health risks due to the potential release of harmful chemicals. Therefore, smoking out of raw aluminum is generally not considered safe.

However, all Packa Design products are made from anodized aluminum, specifically through a process called Type 2 anodization.

The Science Behind Type 2 Anodization

Type 2 anodization is a scientifically controlled electrochemical process that transforms the surface of aluminum into a durable, corrosion-resistant, anodic oxide finish. This process creates a barrier between the raw aluminum and the surface, making it safer under heat.

The anodized surface is not only resistant to heat but also much harder than the original aluminum. It is non-reactive, ensuring that the metal does not leach into the smoke during use.

Anodization and Safety of Packa Design Products

With our products, you can rest assured that you're using safe, durable, and quality smokeware. Our type 2 anodization process makes our products resistant to heat and wear, ensuring a significantly safer and more satisfying smoking experience compared to raw aluminum.

However, it's essential to keep the integrity of the anodized layer intact. Visible scratches on the internal volume of the bowl can expose the raw aluminum underneath. Should such scratches occur, stop using the product immediately to avoid potential health risks. By following proper usage guidelines, particularly in lid removal, such issues can be prevented.

At Packa Design, your safety is our priority. We ensure our products meet high safety standards, offering you not just a superior smoking experience, but peace of mind as well.
