Description

A pack of 3 original high-temperature non-stick silicone socks for E3D V6 and other hot ends, which also use the E3D V6 heating block with a thermistor in cartridge design.

In particular, these socks may be preferred in constructions where it is desirable to keep the heater block AND nozzle completely insulated. It is recommended to use these socks with E3D 0.15mm nozzles.

These socks keep your nozzle clean from burned and blackened plastic. Not only do they keep the nozzle clean, but they also keep the heat inside the hot end and outside of the print.

Made from a heat-resistant, non-stick coated silicone material that prevents the formation of molten plastic. This is particularly helpful for sticky materials such as copolyesters and filled materials that like to build on nozzles.

These socks also offer a tremendous increase in temperature stability, especially if you use a high airflow fan around the nozzle to cool the print. The additional cooling in combination with the reduced heat radiation from the block and nozzle to the print increases the ability to print large overhangs and bridges, while at the same time the hot end temperature remains extremely stable.

The covers are simply pushed onto the front of the hot end without disassembly and are firmly attached. When it's hot, the silicone expands to the right size and adapts to the hot end.

These V6 socks are available in a pack of 3 because they don't last forever. Depending on what materials you print and how much you print, they wear out. Even with sticky abrasive filaments, they should easily last over 100 hours of printing. With less sticky materials such as ABS and gentler use, you can achieve an almost infinite lifespan. Their lifespan can vary. and more!
