As you'll see, it contains 60% n-butane, 29% iso-butane, and 11% propane. It does not contain any additive like mercaptan to create an odor.
Pure n-butane is not easy to come by. It comes in a canister, not a can. You'll need to order it from a gas supply company. In addition, by default, the cansiter you get from a gas company is configured to deliver the n-butane as a gas. For extraction, we need our butane in liquid form, so you'd need to have the gas company fit your canister with something called an eductor tube so that gas is released as a liquid.
If you make it that far, and purchase an eductor fitted canister full of n-butane, then you'll have to figure out how to connect it to an extraction tube
I suspect that going pure n-butane isn't practical until you up your BHO game to a Tamisium
Ok thanks for the information. Guess I'll just be sticking to the cans I can find locally. Hopefully this stuff causes no health problems. After checking out your ice wax Matt rize I'm thinking I'm going to have to give it a try.
n-butane means normal butane. really not that hard to come by. maybe u should look into lpg instead? but imo and expierience iso-butane is what you should be extracting w, not n-butane as that shits dirty. dimethyl propane is way more efficient and thurough than n or iso butane, but the trade off is taste. that nastiness can be treated w activated charcoal column to minimize that, but its inherit. co2 is where its at for oil. the next thing best is far behind as butane extracts. not in the same leagues at all.
