After doing a bit of reserch into the MSDS of fused silica, I believe it is 100% safe to use :). When fused silica is manufactured (similar to borosilicate, but much hotter amongst other dissimilarities), it really doesn't leave any "pores." ISO itself is definitely combustible, but it needs some type of spark to ignite. As long as your temperatures are low, you negate much of the risk of combustion. What you're seeing in the banger, is due to ISO's lower boiling point, causing it to boil away much quicker than water! Onto degradation, devitrification, or "chazzing." This occures when built up oils actually change the fused silica's structure into crystalline solids. This is what gives that faded, dark, or foggy look on the quartz. These crystalline solids do not have good thermal conductivity, and if it's somehow changing the chemical composition into crystalline silica, this is actually dangerous to your health, as Crystalline Silica is found to contain carcinogens. The best way to avoid this is to q-tip after every dab! ISO effectively breaks up the residual oils, but boils away much too quickly to q-tip the oils up. That is why we advise using a few drops of ISO in warm water, so you can efectively "mop" up any leftover contaminents with your q-tips! Clean your banger how you would clean your ears. Use enough q-tips to where you no longer see any residue in your banger, leaving a white q-tip when you wipe all around. I'm writing this on my tablet, so please excuse any spelling mistakes :)
