Staying true to our commitment to innovate, Highly Educated has introduced the first opaque quartz nails to hit the market. Much like the clear fused quartz, opaque quartz has a nominal purity of 99.995% SiO2. The dish is machined from GE opaque quartz. Precise machining of this semiconductor grade quartz allows the V2FQ Nails to be reverse compatible with tools like our Carb Cap V2, UniTi Cap, or ParTi Cap. The dish is fire polished after machining to remove the white blanchart finish and reveal the micro bubbles within which give it its opaque appearance from a distance. The bubbles reduce the transparency of the vitreous silica while maintaining its intrinsic purity. In the semiconductor industry, opaque quartz is primarily utilized in heat-technology applications where good thermal insulation and high temperature stability are of importance. Trying to make an opaque quartz nail from traditional opaque tubing is both difficult and prohibitively costly. Unlike traditional quartz nails, our dish is machined from an opaque quartz slab and not made from tubing.
Released shortly after the V1FQ Opaque Nail, the V2FQ features a reduced air intake hole to increase the dish volume on the inside while still maintaining reverse compatibility with carb caps on the outside. The inside corners of the dish have had a radius added to help prevent carbon from collecting and to conform to the shape of a cotton swab for easy maintenance. The dish was designed with your cotton swab maintenance habits in mind.
