The 3-inch (70mm*) flat fan nozzle creates a “sharp” edge of steam to help cut into stains.
The “Cutting” Fan Nozzle is custom-made to deliver a sharp, focused fan of steam that cuts into fabrics and materials, without a scraper. The wider 3-inch (70mm*) fan of spray — combined with cutting power of a focused edge of steam — makes this tool great for penetrating deep into fabrics** and for jobs requiring a scraper-like effect, without the risk of damage from physical contact.
*Steamericas accessories are based on metric measurements. All imperial measurement on parts and accessories are approximate.
**Always be sure to first test how steam reacts to materials and surfaces in an inconspicuous area before cleaning. You can control the heat by steaming at a distance and moving closer.
