HotEnds are prone to filth with filament sediments that occur during 3D prints and especially at the beginning of this. To avoid this E3D has designed and manufactured a silicone case for its most commercialized HotEnd, the E3D v6 and Volcano, making the maintenance process of the nozzle many faster and easier, as it is practically nil.
It is made of a high temperature resistant silicone and prevents adhesion of materials that leave many sediments, such as co-polyesters. This case also offers a great temperature stability in the HotEnd, especially when a layer fan is available, by avoiding the contact of the air flow produced by it, and thanks to this, the ability to make larger overhangs and bridges without scaffolding.
The duration of the original E3D silicone sleeve is 100 hours for filaments that have sediment with very abrasive components for silicone and an almost infinite life if they are like PLA or ABS.
