  • 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 our 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 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. Your mileage may vary.

Is there a good excuse to not use these?

If you have an E3D block, or a clone that's the same dims, you really should run these if you're not printing high temp materials. I fought with PETG like crazy a couple years back, filament curling back and dragging, and these were essential to fixing the problem. To add to that, temps are more stable, particularly with variable fan profiles, increasing overall reliability. Definitely a must-have product.

Great but buy spares

Theses are great but buy extras if your printing at high temperature as if you get anything stuck between them and the hotend they will deteriorate quickly.

Must have upgrade

This is a must-have upgrade if you have a v6 hot end. It fits my prusa mk3 perfectly, helps keep the temperature stable when the cooling fan kicks in, and keeps those burnt bits of plastic off the nozzle/heater block, never mind mow much cleaner PETG prints are without those globs of burnt plastic wrecking an otherwise perfect print.

the best silicone sock ever

I'll never print without a silicone sock ... ever. It fits perfectly with my E3D V6 Block on my Prusa Original i3 MK2.
