XPR Nozzle Cap Material Change

A small note from Hypertherm regarding the XPR Nozzle Cap.

Subject: XPR Nozzle Cap Material Change

In the coming weeks you will notice visual changes to the outer material of the 420365 XPR nozzle retaining cap. Due to feedback received from the field where cap failure was observed under extreme applications, Hypertherm engineering has been evaluating an alternative insulating material that meets specifications. This new material has been found to better handle extreme conditions with no loss in performance in comparison to the current material.

The picture below illustrates the difference in appearance between the current cap material and the new material.
