Plated Copper Nozzles - Volcano
Durable, non-stick, high temperature performance nozzles. This copper alloy is very temperature
resilient, and will not start to soften or anneal until way beyond 500°C, making it perfect for the high-
temperature 3D printing that other nozzles can't handle. These nozzles are fully integrated into the
E3D Ecosystem and will fit most E3D HotEnds, and are compatible with Prusa 3D printers. E3D
nozzles are easily identifiable by dots drilled into their hex flats.
These nozzles are engineered for ultimate high temperature performance. Made from a special high
temperature copper alloy with a softening point of well above 500°C, and with much-increased
thermal conductivity, these copper nozzles are perfect for high temperature applications, while
working perfectly with everyday filaments like PLA, ABS and spoolWorks EDGE.
In addition to high temperature performance these 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 used by E3D 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 times, and can provide tighter
This copper-alloy is very temperature resilient, and will not start to soften or anneal until way beyond
500°C, making it perfect for the high-temperature printing that other nozzles can't handle.
