A2 Hardened Nozzles

Hercules™ A2 Hardened Steel Nozzles

Hercules™ nozzles are manufactured in the USA by Performance 3D using heat treated A2 tool steel and coated with Duraplat3-d™ wear-resistant coating for enhanced wear and flow.  Compared to stainless steel nozzles, Hercules™ nozzles are 3X harder (56 Rockwell C), have 50% better heat transfer, and 5x the wear life.  Hercules™ nozzles are the clear cut choice for printing with more abrasive filaments like our CarbonX™ Carbon Fiber grades.  

Exceptionally high wear resistance:  5X the wear life of Stainless Steel nozzles.  20X the wear life of Brass nozzles!
