Using Boron Nitride thermal paste with your 3D printer.

Where and when should thermal paste be used in the assembly and maintenance of the Mosquito™ or Copperhead™?

We recommend Boron Nitride (BN) Paste for any hotend, at every interface where you want heat to flow. BN paste quickens the heat/sense feedback loop, improves the life of the cartridge heater (it's been used to seat cartridge heaters in molds for decades), and functions as an anti-seize compound. We love the stuff, and it's made in the USA as you'd expect from Slice. To learn how to properly use Boron Nitride Paste, please see this article here.

Note: Boron Nitride Paste is not pre-applied to any Slice Engineering hotends.
