Hardened steel nozzle E3D V6 0.4 mm
This product includes:
- Hardened steel nozzle E3D V6 (1 pcs)
- Material: Hardened steel
Hardened steel nozzle is recommended for printing abrasive filaments, which wear out the standard brass nozzle very quickly.
Most of the abrasive filament are composites, plastics with something mixed in. Some examples are Bronzefill, Brassfill, filaments with carbon compound, Glow in the Dark filaments and so on. Always ask your filament vendor if you are not sure. Keep in mind, hardened steel has different thermal conductivity properties than brass. Due to that, you may need to adjust your printing setting and increase hotend temperature by about 5°C to print successfully with the hardened steel nozzle.

Purchased the nozzle for printing carbon fiber pc blend. Nozzle works perfectly and it’s pretty easy to change. I’ve even used it for PLA and PETG without any issues.
