1. Is it a good choice for my 3D printer?
Direct drive extruder:
Suitable for all standard filaments.
Suitable for all standard filaments except PLA – this depends on the bowden tube and retraction distance (retraction distances above 2 mm for PLA are not recommended)
This is the best heat break on the market in terms of performance/price. The inner surface’s roughness – Ra 0.4 mm is one of the best in this price range.
The only problematic setup with this heat break would be a bowden extruder, long PTFE tube (bowden) and long retractions.
2. What is it made of?
This heat break is entirely made of titanium alloy with a thermal conductivity: 6.7 W/m-K.

For a better explanation, I made a small render with a PTFE bowden tube.entirely
This is how a cross-section of a V6 hot end with a titanium heatbreak looks like (without the heatsink).
Titanium heat break is the lightest heat break for a V6 hot end on the market right now.
As you can see in the comparison below, the weight is:
Titanium heat break: 1.85 g
Standard all metal heat break: 3.32 g
