Scientific glass has been around for quite some time, and yet it is constantly changing. It seems like every week something is being tweaked or improved in some way. Whether its a new perc design or a new bowl shape, glass artists are always looking to take it to the next level. Designs are constantly getting better and therefore, so is the smoking experience.
What is Scientific Glass?
This special glass is a specific category of smoking instruments made up of pieces having a unique design, and meeting certain specifications. These pieces are fashioned after designs found in scientific laboratories. Therefore, you may notice the underlying influence of certain instruments such as beakers, straight tubes, etc. Scientific pieces are made from thick borosilicate glass that is usually clear or lightly colored. They generally have a pretty basic shape and a very clean look and feel.
Why Use Scientific Glass
Scientific glass has many features that make it ideal for the smoking industry. For one thing, It is more durable and difficult to break than other types of glass. If you are prone to knocking things over, this might be the way to go. It is also very resistant to heat, which is beneficial for something that you will be heating to very high temperatures time and again. Stress fractures are extremely rare in these pieces.
Another nice benefit of Scientific glass rigs is that they are capable of containing multiple percolators. Many times they also have more complex percolators than other types of glass. This makes them excellent at filtering and cooling smoke, providing you with a great smoking experience, and guaranteed cool hits.
Scientific pieces are generally cheaper than heady glass, making them more economical. This is especially important to consider if you plan on transporting your rig often and are worried about it getting broken.
Ultimately, scientific glass is designed for incredible ease of use and functionality, and it excels in both of these areas. If you are looking for a basic tool that is affordable and provides you with the ultimate smoking experience, then scientific glass is right for you.
