As Makers who love to 3D Print in as many different materials and polymers as we can, we make it our mission to try and always have stock of fantastic items like these 0.6mm MK8 Hardened Steel Nozzles, which are made to fit the Creality CR-10, CR-20 and Ender Series of 3D Printers, and are ideally suited to highly-abrasive 3D Filaments.

While many 3D Printers are typically equipped with brass nozzles due to the low cost, high resistance and high thermal conductivity compared to many other materials, bronze is unfortunately not the ideal material to use for 3D Printing. However, it certainly does an excellent job for any standard PLA, ABS or other polymers, but if you want to move into more advanced and unique Exotic Filaments like Metal Fill polymers, Carbon Fiber or even Glow in the Dark, you will definitely need a more rugged nozzle to handle the abrasive materials well without causing problems halfway through a print.

This is why we always make a strong effort to find nozzles like these hardened steel nozzles, as well as a range of other E3D and MK8 Nozzles that include various material compositions and platings too. This way, our favourite customers (yes, that’s you) can enjoy 3D Printing in whatever desktop material you wish – and without having to pay excessive amounts for “specialised” open-source nozzles.

Typical Applications for these 0.6mm MK8 Hardened Steel Nozzles:

While many Makers tend to overlook the true value of an abrasion-resistant nozzle, the truth is that standard brass nozzles can only last a short amount of time before failing when printing very abrasive materials. In fact, brass nozzles will typically only be able to print about 100g to 200g of Carbon Fiber Filament before failing due to the output diameter being too large. Conversely, hardened steel nozzles can print up to 10kg before failing, making them around 50 times more resistant to abrasion than the commonly used brass nozzles.

As a final note, it’s important to understand that these 0.6mm MK8 Hardened Steel Nozzles may not always be the right choice, and brass nozzles re perfectly fine for any standard polymers like ABS or PLA Filaments. However, if you want to experiment with exotic, unique and particle-filled filaments, then it’s a good idea to safe yourself some time, hassle and wasted filament by acquiring the nozzles that will perfectly cater to your needs.



Excellent product

I prefer hardened steel vs the rest. I have done over 100 prints in the last 2 weeks with no hassle. It really makes things simple. I also find that no nozzle temp needs to be increased when using a bigger nozzle. I print with 0.4mm, 0.6mm, 0.8mm at the same temps and everything comes out perfectly
