Silicon Carbide (SIC) Dish Explained. What is it?

If you're a fan of dabbing, you may have heard of the new MiniNail Silicon Carbide Deep Dish Nail. It's a popular choice among dabbers because of its many features which have a number of advantages over other materials commonly used for dabbing.

First of all, silicon carbide is an incredibly durable material (No, it's not Silicone, its Silicon). It's used in a variety of industrial applications because it's resistant to wear and tear, as well as high temperatures and chemicals. This means that a silicon carbide dish surface can withstand the heat and abrasion of dabbing without cracking or chipping, and it can also resist corrosion from the chemicals found in concentrates.

Another advantage of silicon carbide is its ability to retain heat. When you're dabbing, you want the dish surface to be able to hold onto heat for as long as possible so that you can get the most out of your concentrate. Silicon carbide has a high thermal conductivity, which means that it can transfer heat quickly and efficiently. It also has a low thermal expansion coefficient, which means that it won't expand or contract as much as other materials when exposed to heat.

The MiniNail Silicon Carbide Deep Dish Enail takes advantage of these properties by using a high-quality silicon carbide dish that is deep enough to hold a generous amount of concentrate.

The dish is also designed to be easy to clean, with a smooth surface that doesn't have any cracks or crevices where residue can build up. Silicon Carbide is a non-stick material, which means that concentrates are less likely to stick to the surface of the dish. This reduces the amount of residue left behind after a dabbing session, making the dish easier to clean and maintain.

One of the unique features of the MiniNail Silicon Carbide Deep Dish Nail is its use of the MiniNail Hybrid Heater Coil. This means that it combines the benefits of both a barrel style coil and a flat style coil heating element, providing even heat distribution across the entire dish surface. The hybrid heater coil also has a longer lifespan than traditional coils, so you won't have to replace it as frequently.

Another benefit of using a silicon carbide dish surface for dabbing is that it can enhance the flavor and aroma of your concentrate. Silicon carbide doesn't react with the terpenes and other compounds found in concentrates, which can sometimes happen with other materials like quartz or titanium. This means that you'll get a more pure and flavorful hit from your dab.

Overall, the MiniNail Silicon Carbide Deep Dish Enail is a great choice for dabbers who want a durable, efficient, and flavorful dabbing experience. The silicon carbide dish surface is a key feature that sets it apart from other dabbing devices, and it's sure to provide you with many satisfying dabbing sessions.

The Silicon Carbide Nail is available as a dish upgrade for pre-existing Hybrid Nail owners, as an entire Hybrid Nail or as a complete enail kit.
