ZHO Extraction


Greetings Folks!

We have some exciting news. We, at Z Air Inc. developed yet another great product called MZ 12X. MZ 12X is an organic gas that is engineered to be stronger than PureZho. While MZ 12X is flammable it is NOT explosive like butane. Like any other compressed gas caution should be taken when using MZ 12X.  We are confident that you will not be disappointed.

While we are working with potential distributors in different regions we are launching a special web promotion, so be sure to check out our website for more info. Launching of this product is scheduled to be on or before Feb 20th.  Also check out our YouTube video at :


Once again we thank you for all your continuous support and enthusiasm. Have a great week and email us with any questions/comments.


Staff at Z Air, Inc.



For me to use your product, or indeed to even take you seriously, you must provide me with MSDS’s sheets, which are also required by law.

I’ve requested those, as have others, but thus far to no avail.

 Please supply me with those documents, if you plan to continue to sell your product in the US, because I will draw your failure to do so to the attention of the proper authorities.


PS:  Nothing personal.  That law is there for a reason, and if you care to research court cases of those who thought they didn’t have to comply, you will find that they uniformly lost.


MSDS is listed on our website.

Thank you.


 Thank you!

That also puts things in perspective, although your MSDS doesn’t reflect it.

Methylene Chloride MSDS sheets by others show it to be a Class 2-B carcinogen.  Perhaps you might update your MSDS sheet to include that data?


Peace, Graywolf


Hello Graywolf,

If you read our MDSD carefully it says dichloromethane formula….not Methylene Chloride.

By US MSDS & CAS guideline when it is trade secret formula we don’t have to disclose exact

ingredient once it passes EPA review.

We appreciate the information but you can be rest assure that MZ12X is not Methylene Chloride.




And MZ12X is not carcinogen gas.  Period.

You should have noticed the health hazard guideline on our MSDS as well.

It is proven to be non-carcinogen and no known threat to human health.



Ummmmm, Dichloromethane CH2Cl2 is Methylene Chloride.



If you are talking about a different chemical, perhaps you should add the CAS number to alieve any confusion.  Right now, you only show the CAS# for the CO2 propellent and call out Dichloromethane, aka Methylene Chloride.

You are right that you don’t have to give the exact proprietary formula, which I most certainly have not asked you to do, but you do have to tell what is in it and so far you have listed Dichloromethane (Methylene Chloride) and CO2.

You are of course free to play a cat and mouse game with the MSDS sheets, but it only adds to the public skepticism and doubt about you and your product.


Dr Z was kind enough to supply us with a case for testing, the first can of which went to the forensic lab for analysis to look for evil spirits. Here are the lab results.

At the parts per billionth level, there are the usual green alligators and long necked geese, but for all practical purposes, the compounds at high enough levels to be of concern are Dimethylether and CO2.

Neither are particularly toxic but aren’t listed in the Guidance for Industry from U.S. Department of Health and Human Services,
Food and Drug Administration Center for Drug Evaluation and Research (CDER), Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research (CBER)


Here is a MSDS:




TOXICITY DATA: The following information is for Dimethyl Ether:

LC50 (inhalation, rat) = 164,000 ppm/4H
LC50 (inhalation, rat) = 308 g/m3

TCLo (inhalation, rat) = 2 ppb/6 hours/30 weeks-intermittent
Probable LD (oral, human) = 0.5-5 g/kg



ACUTE INHALATION EFFECTS/ CHRONIC INHALATION EFFECTS FOR ANIMALS: Toxicity demonstrated in animals exposed by inhalation for short-term exposures include anesthetic effects, and depression of arterial blood pressure. Cardiac sensitization occurred in dogs exposed to concentrations of 20% in air and greater.

Toxicity experienced in animals from repeated exposure by inhalation include changes in white blood cell counts, anesthetic effects, increase in relative body/organ weight ratios for liver, spleen and testes and weight-gain suppression.

Toxicity demonstrated in rats upon log-term, repeated exposure at 200, 2000, 20000 ppm by inhalation include liver-weight reduction, and alterations of liver enzymes level in the high group.

In a different study in which rats were exposed to concentrations of 2000, 10000, or 25000 ppm observations include decreased red blood cell counts, spleen changes, decreased survival of males at the two higher exposure levels and hemolytic effects at 25,000 ppm.

Tests in animals demonstrate no carcinogenic or developmental toxicity.

EYE IRRITATION: No studies available for Dimethyl Ether.

SUSPECTED CANCER AGENT: Dimethyl Ether is not found on the following lists: FEDERAL OSHA Z LIST, NTP, IARC, CAL/OSHA, and therefore is neither considered to be nor suspected to be a cancer-causing agent by these agencies.

Tests in animals demonstrate no carcinogenic toxicity.

IRRITANCY OF PRODUCT: Dimethyl Ether is not irritating; however, contact with rapidly expanding gases can cause
frostbite to exposed tissue.

SENSITIZATION TO THE PRODUCT: Dimethyl Ether is not known to cause sensitization in humans. Cardiac sensitization has been noted in clinical studies involving test animals exposed to relatively high doses of Dimethyl Ether.

REPRODUCTIVE TOXICITY INFORMATION: Listed below is information concerning the effects of Dimethyl Ether on the
human reproductive system.

Mutagenicity: No human mutagenicity effects have been described for Dimethyl Ether. Dimethyl Ether does not produce genetic damage in bacterial cell cultures but has not been tested in animals.

Embryotoxicity: No embryotoxic effects have been described for Dimethyl Ether.

Teratogenicity: No human teratogenicity effects have been described for Dimethyl Ether.

Reproductive Toxicity: No human reproductive toxicity effects have been described for Dimethyl Ether. Tests in animals
demonstrate no developmental toxicity.

MEDICAL CONDITIONS AGGRAVATED BY EXPOSURE: Individuals with pre-existing diseases of the central nervous system or cardiovascular system may have increased susceptibility to exposures to Dimethyl Ether.

As there were no evil spirits found, we will proceed with extraction.

Here are the test results:

    I would love to have a conversation with one of your employees I use a closed loop system and wondering if you had any testing done.looking forward to hearing from you

    So this stuff isnt c02 and methoxymethane? It is instead a combination of a bunch of random gases ive never heard of? So your saying this company is lying about their formula and passing off garbage. I love your feeds on skunk farms, but all im looking for is a yes or no on this stuff. Your snake oil comment leads me to believe that extraction producers should steer clear of this product? Yes??

    Inuse a closed loop system, i have seen this mz12 used many ways but it always pops and comes out like green poop. So can you tell me how this is better then the clear clean shatter or waxes made other ways


  8. I ordered zgas to do some testing,given the chatter about zgas online so I thought I would share my experience with you guys for general purpose……so far the first odd issue is that I see over and over again that zgas is non flamable and even saw a video of a demonstration in which the zgas rep did an open extraction and kept exposing it to flame while it was extracting and purging.that being said the first thing I see on the box “extremely flamable” second thing I see is the hazmat class 2 flamable marking.the other red flag was that being a class 2 this should have probably been shipped with an msds and by the appropriate hazmat shipper.in reality what happened was the regular old fed ex truck showed up with a package in a clearly pristine never before used box marked “herbal hair conditioner” all over the outside box…..I’m not saying that this product isn’t low flame risk,or whatever else they are claiming.I will test those claims out shortly.what I am saying is that I did a test order and right away I’m slapped in the face with some less than honest practices.maybe it is low fire risk,but if it’s legally hazmat than that’s what it is.claiming non flamable and putting other people in unsafe conditions by shipping this product improperly just seems off in my book based on my first 36hours dealing with this company/product.I’ll try to pass on some info about how the testing comes out both on the chemical and with the extractions with it.

    They Are Big Bizness Charlatans…there are many in this industry…it really blows having to second guess all of it because you know they need our money they are willing to SAY ANYTHING…as long as they can take the money and run……your or mine health is little concern to them unless its lawsuit time-then they are very concerned.
    same BS different day
    great Info

    Can everyone stop pretending to be a chemist? This is another example of why I don’t spend time on these websites. B.s. … the whole lot of you fools.

  12. MZ12 X is a priority product for trichome extractors. The main ingredient of MZ12 X is a product scientifically called Dimethyl Either (DME). DME is an organic compound with the chemical formula C2H6O. There are no carbon bonds and no carcinogens. It is used extensively as the new safer propellant replacing Freon in aerosol cans in products as diverse as “tan in a can” sunscreen, perfumes, body deodorants and air fresheners. It has been described by a testing lab as the ultimate extraction solvent. It is non-toxic, sulfur free and has a low acute toxicity rating. Purge time is reduced to hours not days. The reason purge time is greatly reduced is because of the low boiling temperature (-23 C). The scent would be described as light, delicate, slightly sweet smell. Our tests conducted revealed you can use 20-35% less MZ12 X than butane. The color of the finished product is a beautiful golden yellow. MZ12 X should be only used in a well-ventilated area or a closed loop system.
    Just released, MZ12 X used by Kushy Punch, won Best Edible at Kush Con 2014!

    This is indirectly related; Must Pentane be removed from N-butane to be safe, ie not concentrated in end product? I know little cans have all kinds of junk in them. Thanks

    Sorry GW, you can combine these or not at all😀 I’m also curious. The ZHO MSDS sheet doesnt match up very well. To me it appears to be a combination MSDS sheet for Dimethyl Ether and something else. The listed formula, specific gravity and technical information match that of dimethyl ether. What is it you think these guys are selling?


  18. Posted by Greg on February 21, 2014 at 9:12 AM

    Nice to see this GW. Thanks for your diligence and for keeping us all in the know. PS I sent you an email from my main email haven’t heard back, but i know you’ve been busy. ~Greg

    They have released an MSDS for the MZ12x


    It appears to be a mix of Dichloromethane and co2.
    Here is an MSDS for Dichloromethane

    Z-Air, that video is an absolute joke. JD thank you for bringing this to light. This company (among others) have no business in the community. These are strictly marketing folks thinking they can get a dollar from us, while harm reduction is at the bottom of their list.
