  • The original high temperature non-stick silicone socks for E3D V6 and other HotEnds also using the E3D V6 style heater block with thermistor cartridges.
  • This design remains available for specific use-cases. In particular, these socks may be preferable in set-ups where keeping the heater block AND nozzle fully insulated are desirable. We recommend using these socks with our 0.15mm nozzles.
  • These socks will keep your nozzle clean and free of burnt on blackened plastic.
  • Also keep heat inside the hotend, and off the print.
  • Will keep your 3D printer running smoother for longer.

Made of a heat-resistant, non-stick silicone material which will repel build-up of molten plastic. This really helps with sticky materials like Co-Polyesters and filled materials that like to build up on nozzles. These also offer a huge boost in temperature stability, particularly if you use high airflow cooling around the nozzle to cool the print. The additional cooling combined with reduced radiation of heat from the block and nozzle to the print really boost the ability to print great overhangs and bridges, all while keeping the hotend temperature extremely stable.  The covers simply push onto the front of the hotend with no disassembly - they will be a tight fit when first pushed on cold. When hot the silicone will expand to the correct size to fit the hotend snugly. The elastic material will fit all nozzle sizes in the range from 0.25mm to 0.80mm.  These v6 socks come in a pack of 3 because they don’t last forever. Depending on what materials you print and how much abuse they get they eventually wear away at the nozzle tip. Even with sticky abrasive materials and a bit of abuse they should easily last 100+ print hours. With less sticky materials like ABS and gentler use you can get almost infinite life.
