Health risks by using incorrect fog fluids

What are the different types of fog liquid available?

Propylene glycol or ethylene glycol is used as the main component of most fog liquid mixtures. All Antari fog liquids use propylene glycol. This means the fluids are odourless, non-irritation,  non-toxic and non-flammable.

What are the differences between propylene glycol and ethylene glycol?

Propylene glycol is regarded as being safe to humans and the environment compared to ethylene glycol. When used in fog machines, these liquids need to be heated up, which can increase exposure to harmful substances. As a result, Antari strictly controls the temperature of its fog machines, so that the fluid only heats up to 200 degrees and producing optimal fog with propylene glycol based liquids. Antari's fog liquid has been tested by the Mount Sinai School of Medicine on behalf of the Actor's Equity Association and the League of American Theaters and Producers.

Ethylene glycol is cheaper than propylene glycol.

We only recommend Antari fog liquids be used in Antari fog machines.

Different manufacturers use different specifications regarding the heating and piping elements of their fog machines. They may require their liquids are heated to a different temperature. As a result, if other brands are used, it may cause hot liquids to be expelled, due to insufficient heating, damage the machine  and may produce harmful effects to humans. Therefore, we recommend that only Antari fog liquids be used in Antari fog machines.
