Aspire's Chief Engineer: Introducing the G-Mesh Technology to Solve Six Key Pain Points
In an exclusive interview with Aspire's Chief Engineer Alex, 2FIRSTS provides an in-depth analysis of the first-ever superconductive glass coil technology in the industry—the G-Mesh.

On March 19th, Aspire officially unveiled the industry's inaugural "superconductive glass coil" vaporization technology—G-Mesh. This pioneering innovation employs a novel material known as "superconductive glass," marking a monumental leap forward in the field.

Amidst a backdrop of increasing global regulation and fierce industry competition, innovative technology has become key for the vaping industry to meet challenges. However, vaping technology is typically limited to cotton and ceramic coils, both of which fail to fully address user pain points. Therefore, the introduction of G-Mesh brings a completely new option to the industry, set to lead a comprehensive transformation in vaporization technology in terms of safety, user experience, and automation.

 

Pioneering "Superconductive Glass Coil" Technology -- G-Mesh Leads Industry Innovation

 

According to data from the General Administration of Customs of China, the export scale of China's electronic cigarettes reached 11.08 billion USD in 2023, a year-on-year increase of 12.5%. Faced with such a massive market scale, Alex stated that despite the booming development of the electronic cigarette industry, issues such as leakage of e-liquid and impure taste remain as pain points for the industry's growth.

 

Alex introduced that traditional cotton coils are known for their quick sweet release and fast liquid absorption, but their particle size usually ranges from 5 to 15 microns, which is relatively large and far from the performance of ceramic coils. Therefore, the use of traditional cotton coils may lead to problems such as e-liquid leakage, excessive oral residue, and the need for higher power. Additionally, from a supply chain perspective, cotton coils also face issues like low levels of production automation.

 

On the contrary, ceramic coils can achieve a particle size of 1.25 microns, offering relative stability, reduced leakage, lower power requirements, and a higher degree of automation. However, due to their difficulty in producing sweetness, the majority of disposable vapes on the market still use cotton coil technology, with ceramic coil technology holding only a small share of the market.

 

Alex explained that to address the various issues associated with cotton and ceramic coils, Aspire initiated a two-year research and development plan starting in 2021, aiming to develop a new type of vaporization technology that combines the advantages of both cotton and ceramic coils while addressing their shortcomings. After more than a year of experimentation and testing hundreds of materials, Aspire ultimately chose "superconductive glass" as the primary material.

 

The "superconductive glass coil" technology is named "G-Mesh," where "G" stands for "superconductive glass." As the latest achievement of Aspire, developed entirely through independent research, G-Mesh technology revolutionizes traditional vaporization techniques with a particle size of only 324 nanometers, surpassing all cotton and ceramic coils. Moreover, to significantly enhance the spatial utilization within the device and reduce the device's size, G-Mesh achieves a thickness of 1mm, which is 67% thinner than ceramic coils.

Regarding the choice of "superconductive glass" as the primary material, Alex explained, "Superconductive glass possesses inherent food-grade safety, and its amorphous structure combines the characteristics of superconductive materials. Compared to other materials, superconductive glass has a higher critical temperature and excellent acid-base resistance, making it highly suitable for dealing with the weakly acidic and basic components found in e-liquids. These features demonstrate the immense potential of superconductive glass in the field."

 

With strong technical support, the superconductive glass coil technology "G-Mesh" successfully integrates and surpasses the advantages of cotton and ceramic coils, while also revolutionary addressing the pain points of both.

 

Addressing 6 Major Pain Points for a Comprehensive Enhancement of User Experience

 

In the binary choice scenario between cotton coils and ceramic coils, manufacturers often struggle to cater to all user needs. In response to this, Alex stated that as a technology-driven company, Aspire consistently prioritizes meeting user needs as the coil concept of technological innovation. Driven by this innovative philosophy, the development of G-Mesh has achieved a disruptive breakthrough, successfully addressing the six major pain points of users and significantly enhancing the overall user experience.

 

In terms of taste, G-Mesh has increased the aerosol particle fineness by 35%, which significantly reduces oral residue, resulting in a cleaner and more comfortable taste. Additionally, the enhanced aerosol particle fineness aids in the full release of nicotine, providing users with a more traditional cigarette-like satisfaction experience, and increasing the satisfaction of users transitioning from traditional smokers. Furthermore, G-Mesh not only boasts an liquid absorption speed that is 8 times faster but also employs micro-level technology, greatly reducing the burning feeling in vapes, and offering users a smoother vaping experience and a purer taste.

In terms of flavor, G-Mesh's 1mm thinness offers a significant advantage. Compared to ceramic coils with a thickness of over 3mm, G-Mesh provides a better flavor, and it is easier to produce sweetness and aroma. Moreover, due to its extremely thin nature, G-Mesh can accommodate up to 40% more e-liquid flavors than other products, enriching the variety of flavors available.

 

Regarding puff count, G-Mesh can increase the number of puffs by over 70% compared to mainstream products on the market with the same amount of e-liquid. This provides users with a more cost-effective and longer-lasting vaping experience.

 

In terms of lifespan, G-Mesh's service life is five times longer than other atomizer coils, greatly enhancing the product's durability. Additionally, due to the superconductive glass coil's acid and alkali resistance, e-liquids can be stored for a longer period.

Regarding safety, unlike cotton and ceramic coils which contain more components, G-Mesh has a higher purity. More importantly, as superconductive glass is a very safe food additive, it significantly increases user safety.

 

In terms of appearance, G-Mesh's extremely thin profile allows it to better fit the development of current visible e-liquid tank products, enabling users to check the e-liquid level at any time and bid farewell to e-liquid anxiety.

 

G-Mesh not only brings more options to the industry but also enhances the precision of the overall user experience through its relentless pursuit of product performance excellence. This milestone advancement sets a benchmark for the industry's development.
