E3D Nozzle X Volcano - 3mm x 1.2mm
One Nozzle to rule them all!
The Nozzle X is NEW ‘One to rule them all’ nozzle, made from a special alloy of tool steel we have been able to create a nozzle that is immensely hard, but also maintains its hardness to high temperatures without softening. E3D has added a layer of hard, slick nickel plating which provides a fantastic balance of cost and wear resistance. The cherry on the top? NEW WS2 ‘polyphobic’ nano coating, no more filament sticking to your nozzle.
While E3D hardened steel nozzles are ideal for printing abrasive filaments such as ones loaded with Carbon Fiber, the extreme temperatures can cause the steel to temper and soften, ultimately reducing its abrasion resistance. And then there are E3D plated copper nozzles, able to cope easily with these immense temperatures but lacking the abrasion resistance required to resist Carbon Fiber. This is where the Nozzle X comes in, a nozzle able to withstand crazy temperatures without softening.
One-piece all-machined construction that provides fantastic flow response and keeps the exact same geometry and compatibility as the rest of the E3D ecosystem, while maintaining an excellent balance of cost and wear resistance. And the new ‘polyphobic’ nano-coating that reduces the polymer adhesion to the nozzle surface, makes it the best nozzle on the market.
Benefits of our WS2 ‘polyphobic’ nano-coating:
- Less build up, particularly of sticky and filled materials to the nozzle cone
- Improved first layer reliability; the slick coating has a reduced tendency to ‘drag’ material, particularly at sharp corners where tracks can peel up
- Slicker, smooth top solid layers with a glassy like finish as a result of the smooth laydown of material
- Easier nozzle cleaning, what little material that does adhere is easily wiped away with a paper towel leaving a very clean nozzle.
