Tungsten Carbide: High flow with abrasion resistance
Tungsten carbide, not to be confounded with tungsten alloy, which is metal, is the ceramic of choice when it comes to wear and abrasion resistance. Cutting tools for steel and tool steel are made from tungsten carbide. It is also used extensively in the mining industry as a button insert for crushing rocks.
The high thermal performance of the tungsten carbide keeps the nozzle tip hot, thus allowing faster printing speed without sacrificing the quality.
Tungsten carbide has exceptional wear resistance due to its high hardness. Both the nozzle hole size and height will always stay the same, no matter how long or how hard you use it.
Crank up your printer speed!
Compared to a reference brass nozzle, the tungsten carbide nozzle is much easier to extrude. In fact, the output flow can be increased by around 80% while having the same results.
