Guide to Seasoning Your Titanium NailGrav Labs Adjustable Titanium Nitrate Nail

Seasoning your titanium nail is an important first step and a crucial maintenance process for ensuring yourself the best smoking experience with your dab rig. Before the first use of your titanium nail in your concentrate pipe, properly seasoning your nail will make for a much better taste. Think of seasoning as a way of “breaking-in” your titanium nail before it's even placed in your oil rig. 

By repeatedly heating the nail and placing it in cold water, you are removing all of the impurities from manufacturing that leads to an unpleasant taste. After your nail has had some use in your vapor rig, you can use seasoning as a way to clean residue off of your nail as well. The following guide will help lead to not only an enjoyable first dab with your new titanium nail, but also as a simple way to maintain your nail for many uses to come.

Items needed:

  • Dish/Cup/Container

  • Water

  • Ice

  • Torch

  • Pliers (or something to grip your nail with)

Steps: 

  1. Fill a dish or container with cold water

  2. Add ice cubes

  3. Use the pliers to grab the bottom of your titanium nail

  4. Using a torch, heat the head of your nail for about a minute (or until it is completely red)

  5. Dip the head of the nail straight into the water so that it is completely submerged

  6. Swirl the nail around in the water for about 5 to 10 seconds so that all areas of the head have had contact with the water

  7. Lightly shake nail over container to remove any remaining water

  8. Repeat steps 4 through 7 TWO more times (for a total of THREE dunks into the container)

  9. Your titanium nail is seasoned and ready for use!
