Hardened steel nozzles specifically designed for the XG Hotend by Dropeffect / Phaetus.
Hardened steel is the standard nozzle material required for printing advanced and specialist composite filaments that contain carbon fibre, steel, wood, boron, carbide tungsten and phosporescent (glow in the dark) pigment. Printing any of the mentioned materials on a brass nozzle will very quickly wear the nozzle to a point of enlarging the nozzle orifice and deteriorating print quality.
Hardness (Mohs): 7.8
Maximum Printing Temperature: 450°C
Thermal Conductivity: 22W/m-K
Expansion Coefficient: 8µm/m-°C
Suitable for a wide variety of materials including, but not limited to:
- Carbon fibre
- Glass fibre
- Glow in the dark / phosphorescent
- Wood filled
- Metal filled
