pencil torch attachment

a while ago i got this pencil torch

eventually i found out how to use the hot blower/soldering attachment (just below the sponge in the pic)
but i would like to know how it works/if it would melt or something if i gas it too much, cant seem to find any info on it
it started out gold but after using it just a bit it turned grey

It is most likely constructed from a metal with a higher melting point than the torch can put out. If you're worried, just take short breaks if you plan to use it for an extended period of time.
