OK, so the price... it's high. Have you tried it? How does it last?

X Wick would appear just to be lengthily baked glass fibre - silica. Perhaps with an additive to glue it together.

As far as I'm concerned, silica is not a ceramic - ceramics are metal oxides IMO. Silicon is most certainly not a metal.

Apparently the official definition means that silica (In pure form SiO2) is a ceramic though I'd not use the term that way. That makes all glasses ceramics which is stretching the non-dictionary use of the term.

Their website doesn't have any prices. This is always a bad sign.

RE: The future of Temp Control...?
Can't say I'll ever use silica when there are so many better alternatives. Ever dry hit silica? Try it then tell me that sh'ts safe!
 The original aspire Atlantis coils had a 'ceramic paper' element to them as I recall. Maybe that's available somewhere? 
I get temp control for a dripper but not a tank, after all a tanks full of juice that you can see the level of, if you've got it dry you're doing something wrong Tongue. Even in a dripper.. I could use any number of temp control wires i have to build a coil but I got bored of it, trying to get good clouds and flavour when I already had it with kanthal, stainless ect. After a while vaping you know when a dry hit is looming, I haven't dry hit in months, well not a horrendous one anyway Big Grin

Don't forget to apply for the freecycle section!

Ready X is a ceramic compound used to sheath wires to protect them from heat in missiles and space vehicles.  I haven't used it personally, but everyone I know that's tried it says it's amazing.  Cost is something like $12 for a foot.  Considering people are getting 6-8 months out of each length...

EDIT - $8 for 6" each of two diameters.  http://store.rbasupplies.com/readyxwick/
