E3D Volcano Plated Copper Nozzle
E3D Volcano Plated Copper Nozzles
The E3D Volcano Plated Copper Nozzles are durable, non-stick and extremely high temperature performance Volcano nozzles. Take your 3D printing to the next level by modifying your Volcano with these E3D Volcano Plated Copper Nozzles. Made from a unique copper alloy, they will not begin to soften or anneal below 500°C and they are highly resistant to debris and burnt-on plastic thanks to their nickel coating. The E3D Volcano Plated Copper Nozzles have a much-increased thermal conductivity and they are perfect for high temperature applications, while working perfectly with everyday filaments like PLA and ABS.
In addition to high temperature performance, these E3D Volcano Plated Copper Nozzles have an advanced nickel based plating, considerably reducing the adhesion of plastic to the nozzle. This is great for everyday filaments keeping things clean and shiny, but is particularly important at temperatures above 300°C where a silicone sock can't be used.
Copper has more than 3x the thermal conductivity of brass and the copper alloy E3D use has been hardened and treated to reduce the oxidation that occurs in copper at high temperatures. The higher thermal conductivity will also slightly increase your heat-up time and can provide tighter temperature control.
