E3D Hardened Steel V6 nozzle - 3mm x 0.50mm (V6-NOZZLE-HS-300-500)
If you 3D print with carbon fibre, filled PLA, or glow-in-the-dark filament, then this is the nozzle you need! Carbon filled filaments cause rapid and significant damage to standard nozzles. E3D has developed these incredibly wear-resistant nozzles to deal with the toughest filaments on the market.
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. And you’ll be future-proofed for upcoming materials; we think these nozzles should be able to handle just about anything our 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!
All nozzles in the series are now individually identifiable with markings on the flats of the hex head making them even more convenient to work with.
