Quartz Bangers & Nails
The demand for quartz nails for dabbers has drastically increased over the past few years, because, well, they're awesome.
Although quartz is less durable than titanium, it provides a cleaner taste and heats up very easily. Quartz also has less heat retention than titanium, making it easier for dabbers to achieve optimal temperatures and taste the true flavors of their terpenes.
Dabbers love quartz for its clean aesthetics, taste and fast heating times, and concentrate enthusiasts across the globe trading on their domeless titanium nails for quartz bangers or honey buckets. If you're trying to enjoy low temp dabs, try scooping a quartz nail with steady heat and ultra clean inhalations.
Weedipedia stocked a wide range of bangers and other quartz heating components serves any taste: we have cube style bangers and big trough style bangers for people who love to dab BIG. Any of our quartz nails have hinged caps for quick low-temperature dabbing. We have had the direct injection of quartz nails if that's the style!
What Is A Quartz Banger?
A quartz banger is a variation of a concentrate nail, which allows the user to heat their concentrates while delivering more flavors and effects than other heating methods. A quartz banger, constructed from single piece quartz, is used in tandem with a waterpipe to heat your concentrates and deliver the vapor through your water pipe to your mouth.
The anatomy of the banger includes the bucket, where your concentrates are heated, and then the joint, which will connect to your water pipe. This simple construction avoids a lot of extra pieces commonly associated with glass nails, which require the use of a dome. The simplistic design of the quartz banger makes for easier maintenance and eliminates small, losable pieces.
Quartz bangers are the standard for those who prefer concentrates. The reason for the prevalence of these types of concentrate accessories is their inert nature, which means that they are chemically inactive. This prevents any unwanted flavors imparting upon your compounds. This inertness also makes it hard for materials to stick to the quartz because it is not porous. This property not only makes it easier to clean but also prevents the loss of precious concentrates that would otherwise be absorbed by ceramic or low-quality glass.
How To Maintain A Quartz Banger
Maintaining your quartz banger regularly or after every session is the best way to keep it running at peak efficiency and will decrease the likelihood of encountering any “off” flavors. Sopping up any excess concentrate material after every usage will significantly elongate the amount of time you can go in-between cleanings.
The easiest way to maintain your quartz banger in-between sessions is to use a q-tip, cotton rag, or dedicated swab like these from Higher Standards. Simply swab up any remaining concentrates after each usage. This prevents oxidation and buildup on your quartz banger. This step goes a long way in making sure that you experience the full flavor profile of your concentrates and that your quartz banger is operating at maximum efficiency. If you neglect this step, you may need to do a deep clean, following the procedure below.
How To Clean Quartz Banger
If you’ve neglected regular maintenance of your banger or would like to restore it to new condition, a deep cleaning is necessary. To deep clean your banger, the best method is to soak the banger in isopropyl alcohol. This will loosen up any of the grime and built-up resinous material. You can use a swab or rag to clean the chamber of your quartz banger. A pipe cleaner can be used to remove adhesive deposits from hard-to-reach areas.
