NIMBUS-SiC-ST
The successor to the world famous line of Halo dishes, the Nimbus is the newest iteration of our advanced material dish lineup for hybrid nail assemblies.
 
Over 70% larger, they accommodate larger amounts of material with less or no splash.  Subtle modifications have been made to the dish corners to allow for increased contact area at the critical points where oil spreads and for easier cleaning.
 
Extra care has been taken to employ - and push - state of the art construction techniques to ensure the highest quality product.
 
Our silicon carbide Nimbus, dull as it is, is a thing of beauty.
 
Made from extremely high purity sintered silicon carbide and painstakingly polished, cleaned, and inspected, these are made to last.
 
 
 
 
Key points:
  • Extremely resistant to chemicals and heat - They hold up perfectly to years of heavy use without wear.
  • Extremely nonstick - which makes them easy to clean
  • Highly conductive and high thermal capacity - very even heating across the dish
 
Flavor: This is a complex subject. 
Silicon Carbide is extremely inert and will not contaminate the flavor of your oil. 
Beyond that is where the real magic comes into play - the low surface adhesion and high conductivity both serve to allow the rapid spreading and vaporization of material. 
Considering the narrow time span of a human breath, this nail allows for virtually unmatched ability to vaporize and deliver a wide range of compounds with minimal degradation.
In short, the dish delivers the full flavor of your oil better than anything we have been able to deem safe for these purposes short of perhaps sapphire.
 
Pair with comet spheres and a directional cap for mixing, and this nail elevates to an even higher level of efficiency and flavor.
 
Compatibility:
  • A larger retaining lug is required and included with the dish.  Otherwise, compatibility is 100% compared to Halo dishes.
Heaters:
  • Flat coil or 28mm barrel heater
 
Directional Caps:
  • Universal directional titanium cap
  • Quartz Halo cap
 
Cross brand or older assemblies:
The retaining lug is 5/16 female thread, and will fit with a variety of products other than our own.
Should there not be a wide enough area to support the heating element, a height lock or coil retainer should be affixed to support the heating element.

    SiC Nimbus is a beast!

    Posted by Chris on May 4th 2020

    I picked up the D-Nail SiC Nimbus & assembly recently as a replacement to another banger that had some pretty glaring issues.. Thus far, I've been pretty impressed with the Nimbus - its easy to setup, takes heat well, heats quickly, and the taste is significantly improved over titanium. Cleaner burns all around as well, and I find that as long as I'm not putting more than a grain of rice worth of extract in, I don't have much cleaning to do. Additionally, the PTFE insert provided with the Nimbus does a wonderful job of insulating glass from heat dispersion, and its a nice touch.
