High temperature resistant block that is not easily deformed and has excellent temperature transmissibility. Ideal for high temperature printing.
Plated copper components are designed for best performance at high temperatures. Manufactured from a special high temperature copper alloy with a softening point above 500 °C, and with much higher thermal conductivity.
In addition to high temperature performance, these nozzles have advanced nickel-based plating, which greatly reduces the adhesion of the plastic to the nozzle, especially important at temperatures above 300 °C where a silicone sock cannot be used.
Copper has more than three times the thermal conductivity of brass, and the copper alloy used has been hardened and treated to reduce the oxidation that occurs in copper at high temperatures. The higher thermal conductivity will also slightly increase warm-up times and can provide tighter temperature control.
