Micro Swiss MK8 All Metal Plated Brass Hotend Upgrade with Nozzle - 0.6mm
Performance MK8 All Metal Hotend Thermal Tube Upgrade
Stainless steel thermal tube with TwinClad XT plating
Low friction with exceptional release properties
Great for high abrasion filaments like Carbon Fiber, Metal filled, and Aluminates
This is a performance MK8 All Metal Hotend Upgrade. It includes a coated nozzle and coated thermal barrier tube. They are plated with a very low friction plating called TwinClad XT. TwinClad XT is a nickel composite coating designed to be very hard, corrosion resistant, and have good release properties against plastic. It offers one of the lowest coefficient of friction, better than nickel with PTFE co-deposit. The hardness makes this coating abrasion resistant. If you are working with abrasive Carbon Fiber, Stainless Steel, wood filled or any other metal filled filaments, this will greatly improve the life of your nozzle. Low friction will also prevent clogs in thermal barrier tube, a critical zone where plastic liquidizes.
