Choose the right material:
Nozzle X is the last nozzle your 3D printer will ever need. Made from a hardened tool-steel base, they are then Nickel plated to maintain hardness at elevated temperatures, and have a WS2 coating applied to provide the nozzle with reduced stick properties. Rated to a maximum temperature of 500°C, Nozzle X prints every printable material*, from PLA all the way to Carbon Fibre-filled PEEK without wearing.
Brass nozzles, featuring E3D’s signature internal geometry, have optimal thermal properties for everyday printing, providing smooth layers for standard non-abrasive applications. Rated to a max temperature of 300°C.
Stainless steel nozzles are suitable for food-grade printing, or applications where the lead content of the brass nozzles is unsuitable. Rated to a maximum temperature of 500°C.
Our unique plated copper nozzles are suitable for high-temperature, non-abrasive applications. The nickel plating provides a reduced-stick surface, ideal for situations where temperatures are too hot for a silicone sock. Rated to a maximum temperature of 500°C.
Hardened steel nozzles are good utility nozzles, suitable for abrasive filaments such as wood fills, glitter fills and metal fills. Even glow-in-the-dark filaments will abrade brass so our Hardened Steel nozzles are a great, lower-cost option when you can’t stretch to a Nozzle X. Rated to a maximum temperature of 500°C. Please note this nozzle is not suitable for printing abrasive filaments at temperatures above 350°C.
Volcano nozzles are not compatible with the V6, SuperVolcano or Cyclops heater blocks.
