These socks will keep your nozzle clean and free of burnt on blackened plastic.They don’t just keep the nozzle clean, but also keep heat inside the hotend, and off the print.
Made of a heat-resistant, non-stick silicone material that 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.
KEEPS PRINT HEAD CLEAN OF DEBRIS: Since silcone is non-stick, your print head will remain clean and it prevents filament from sticking to the heater block or nozzle.
HEAT INSULATOR: The sock also acts as an insulator for the print head. It will reduce heat up time and help maintain a constant temperature during printing
note: The maximum temperature that silicone socks can withstand is 290°C. If you exceed 290°C for a long time, please remove the silicone sock.
FIts like a ….er…sock!
