How to Use the Eyce Rig II
Heating Your Nail
The Eyce Silicone Rig II is a revolutionary silicone rig for the user on the go, and it is very reliable when used properly. Only heat the dish of your nail. The proper temperature to heat the dish of your nail is between 350°F - 400°F (205°C), shown below in Figure A. As a frame of reference; if your nail is glowing red after heating, LAY OFF THE HEAT! As shown in Figure B below, when the titanium is glowing red, your nail is >1000°F (538°C) which is much too hot for a comfortable smoke. Heating your nail up to 400°F requires no more than ~5-8 seconds of flame to the dish of your nail. Pro tip: Instead of focusing your torch flame on one location of the nail, spread the heat evenly around the dish.
- Figure A = Proper Heating
- Figure B = Overheating
- Figure C = Do NOT angle torch towards silicone, silicone may burn. Refer back to Figure A for proper heating.
The ideal temperature for concentrate usage is between 300°F - 400°F. To learn more about ideal temperatures, check out the post on High Times.
Heating your nail for longer than 15 seconds and/or applying the torch flame directly to the silicone rig is not advised. The silicone has a maximum allowable temperature of 585°F (307°C). When the nail is heated as advised, the silicone will not reach temperatures anywhere near it's allowable maximum temperature. Although it is ok to heat the silicone up to the maximum allowable temperature, it is not recommended as it may cause risk or harm and may weaken the integrity of your silicone product.
There is plenty of thermal margin to use your rig safely without concern of unintentionally overheating.
We do NOT recommend use with e-nails.
How to Clean Your Silicone Rig
We recommend scrubbing with a mild soap solution and warm water. For best results use Eyce Silicone Cleaner. DO NOT use any alcohol solution on your silicone rig, alcohol breaks down silicone and is not recommended.
Freezing your silicone rig unit is also a great way to clean it. Freeze it over night, then bend and twist the silicone to crack out the residue.
