Genuine E3D v6 Nozzle – Hardened Steel – 1.75mm x 0.8mm optimised for composite filaments

If you print carbon fibre filled, or other abrasive materials this is the nozzle you need! Carbon filled filaments will cause rapid and significant damage to standard nozzles. Don’t fear however! We’ve developed these new, incredibly wear-resistant nozzles that basically eliminate wear. A standard E3D-v6 Brass nozzle will be significantly worn by printing just 250g of carbon fibre material, that means you could get through 3 nozzles with a single spool of material! However these new nozzles will not wear out, even in extended use with very abrasive materials. You can read more about it in our Blog Post. We took our standard nozzle design, and applied some material science. By changing from brass to a carefully selected steel, and then post-processing that steel nozzle with a combination of thermal and chemical treatments we can create an extremely hard and wear resistant nozzle. Paying a little extra for a hardened, wear-resistant nozzle makes both practical and economic sense. By the time you’ve printed a single spool of abrasive filament you’re saving money. It also saves a lot of time as you won’t be constantly replacing worn out nozzles. Furthermore you’ll be future-proofed for upcoming materials, we think these nozzles should be able to handle just about anything the material manufacturers think of next. Because of the thermal and chemical treatment applied to the nozzle they do have a bit of a dark, sometimes uneven looking coloration and surface finish, and there can be a small amount of residue on the nozzles despite our final cleaning process. The coloration variance is normal and doesn’t affect function, any residue left on the nozzle will quickly be flushed in the first few millimetres of extrusion, especially if you flush it out with an abrasive filled material!

Product Features

  • Genuine E3D Nozzle to fit Prusa i3 Reprap 3D Printer and all E3D V6 and V6.1 Extruder Hot End Kits – 1.75mm
  • Composite materials print better with wider nozzles. This 0.8mm nozzle is optimised for composite filaments.
  • Composite materials will wear down standard nozzles and filament feeder hobbled gears. Use uprated hardened nozzles and hobbled gears when printing with composite filaments, especially metal, glass or carbon fibre-filled filaments.
