The last shipment of Lava Butane in December 2010 marked the end of a legacy created by Pyro Products. The untimely passing of Pyro Products founder in 2008 resulted in the end of production of Lava Butane, Pyros' flagship product and, until recently, the cleanest butane on the planet. The remaining Lava inventory continued to be sold until the last cans were shipped at the close of year 2010.
As we bid farewell to Lava, a new ultra premium butane product has emerged. TattooWorks®
is the only 5 times refined butane product available. This ultra
premium butane is unmatched by any other butane product. Some
butane products are marketed and sold as “refined 5 times” or
"Quadruple Refined", but they are not. .
FACT: There have
only been two butane products manufactured that are truly
refined 5 times – Lava and TattooWorks®. And with the departure of Lava from the market, there is now only one, truly refined 5 times ultra premium butane and that is TattooWorks®.
Why ultra refined butane one might ask? The answer: contaminants. When
used in jet torches, cleaner fuel means less contaminants that
clog the combustion point where the fuel and oxygen are mixed.
Less oxygen in the mixture causes a yellow flame with reduced
heat. A proper mixture in a jet torch produces a hotter, blue
flame that can be nearly invisible against some backgrounds.
