Genuine E3D V6 Socks Pro (Pack of 3) (V6-SOCK-PRO-3PACK)

A pack of 3 original high temperature non-stick silicone socks for E3D V6 and other HotEnds also using the E3D V6 style heater block with thermistor cartridges.

Not sure about this design? E3D is confident that the new-style socks will suit almost all customers, but E3D kept this design available for specific use-cases. In particular, these socks may be preferable in set-ups where keeping the heater block AND nozzle fully insulated are desirable. We recommend using these socks with our 0.15mm nozzles.

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 are a pack of 3 because they 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 materials like ABS and gentler use you can get almost infinite life. Mileage may vary.

  1. Completely covers all but the end of the E3D V6 nozzle tip. These “Pro” socks are pretty much the same as the original silicone socks except they cover the nozzle except for the very tiniest part of the tip. They also cover the heat block bottom screw hole completely.They help stop filament from wrapping around and melting on the outside of the nozzle. These also help keep the heat block and nozzle looking good. They also do hold in the heat a bit to the block and nozzle and so make it a bit easier for your electronics to keep the…
