For MakerBot and RepRap Hotends with M6 threads
These premium nozzles offer low friction and improved hardness to improve reliability and reduce down-time when printing with highly-abrasive filaments.
Starting with precision-turned 360 Brass alloy bases machined on a Swiss-style lathe, these upgrade nozzles are hard-coated with a specially formulated electroless nickel plating composite process.
This coating forms a very hard and abrasion resistant surface with high lubricity (very low friction), improves plastic flow, and reduces the likelihood of clogging.
Unlike solid stainless steel nozzles, these coated nozzles retain most of the excellent thermal properties that come from using brass. We highly-recommend these nozzles when printing with “filled” filament which are often abrasive (ones that are filled with metal, carbon-fiber, or glow-in-the-dark aluminate compounds) or when printing with “fiber filled” filament that is more prone to clogging (filled with wood-fiber, PVA).
- Compatible with the Original Replicator (wooden), Replicator 2, Replicator 2X
- Compatible with RepRap Hotends with M6 threads (5mm thread length)
Compatible replacement for use on MK8 and MK7 type hot-ends with a M6-threaded heater block (the hotends for MakerBot Replicator 2, 2X, and 1).
Hard coating improves service life and reduces down time
Standard 0.4 mm nozzle hole diameter
Highly recommended for use with abrasive filaments (metal filled, glow-in-the-dark, carbon-fiber filled)
Also recommended for use with clog-prone filaments (fiber filled, PVA)
