Silicone Pipes: Unbreakable pipes, bubblers and dab rigs
Posted by Craig Jones on Aug 04, 2018
Have you been hearing about Silicone Tubes, Pipes & Oil Rigs?
Silicone is a recent evolution in smoking technology that has resulted from frustrations associated with glass pipes. After years of breaking glass pipes and so much money wasted, we finally have a solution to this problem - silicone.
Companies like Eyce Molds are trying to revolutionize the industry, or at least provide a better option for smokers to smoke, do dabs and vape without the fear of watching their favorite pipe and investment shatter on the floor. You have created far too many good memories with that pipe to break it now and have to start all over fresh with a new, unfamiliar pipe.
Silicone also solves the perpetual problem of cleaning your pipe, by allowing you to put your silicone spoon pipe, hammer, bubbler, or tube into the dishwasher without any worries of breaking it or melting it. Silicone makes the toughest cleaning job easy by allowing you to break down large tubes into smaller pieces that can be conveniently snapped together or apart to fit into any dishwasher.
Safe Silicone Smoking
All Eyce Molds products and a few other top manufacturers make all their silicone pipes BPA-free, dishwasher safe, unbreakable and with a lifetime warranty. But it is very important to purchase a quality silicone pipe as you will be working with silicone at high temperatures. Although silicone pipes use a glass bowl insert, you would never want to use a pipe that contained BPA. This is especially important when choosing a dab rig or oil rig due to the use of butane torch lighters at extremely high temperatures.
BPA, which stands for bisphenol A, is the same substance that caused alerts several years ago warning us against cooking or storing foods in certain types of plastic containers. It is an industrial chemical that has been used in the manufacture of certain plastics and epoxy resins made for commercial use since 1957. Research has shown BPA to be harmful, so it is important to purchase a BPA-free silicone water pipe or dab rig. According to the Mayo Clinic, “Exposure to BPA is a concern because of possible health effects of BPA on the brain, behavior and prostate gland of fetuses, infants and children.” Further, BPA is thought to cause increased blood pressure.
While many connoisseur smokers will always refuse to use anything but glass due to the purity of the taste and lack of any degradation, silicone is a great option for durability, convenience, and portability. I have seen silicone pipes put through the roughest of conditions and hold up perfectly. For example, I saw regular silicone spoon pipes thrown and just bounce off of an asphalt surface. I have even seen the Eyce Hammer Bubbler run over by a truck and come out with only marks that could be easily washed away.
Silicone is either an evolution and revolution in smoking or alternatively an insult to the heady glass pieces that have developed in recent years depending on who you ask. From my perspective, its great to see more options and choices for smokers, vapers and dabbers everywhere. Silicone surely has some drawbacks compared to glass, but it also clearly has unparalleled benefits which can make it a great part or addition to anyone’s collection of smoking pipes, vapes and rigs. Good thing you can have it all!
