If you like to keep your pipes clean, silicone is one of the best materials to aid you in this mission. One of the silicone's best properties is that it is non-stick. This means that your silicone dab rigs and nectar collectors will be much easier to clean after many dabbing seshes. Clumps of concentrate residue can literally be peeled off of the silicone. Even silicone pipes and bongs will be much easier to clean after prolonged use because they are dishwasher safe.
Pretty much any pipe that has been made of glass is now being made of silicone. The most popular are silicone hand pipes and bongs. Silicone bongs have gotten very intricate with their features. They now contain percolators that help to filter your smoke with water. Some of the percolators are even made of pyrex glass, making these more of a hybrid style of water pipe. Dab rigs and nectar collectors are now being made of silicone. For portability, you can't beat dabbing with silicone. No more worrying about a broken rig when going to a show, festival, or camping. More recently, silicone hammers, Sherlocks, and bubblers have hit the market. These are a newer adaptation of a traditional glass bubbler style, but with the obvious benefits of not breaking when you drop it.
