We've got you covered with 22 new Caps and Plugs, joining an existing range of over 2000 tried and tested solutions. The range consists of many specialist products that are designed to meet specific protection requirements across a spectrum of manufacturing, transit and end-user applications.
Tapered caps and plugs featured a narrowing design for snug fit and easy removal. The tapered design allows the cap to cover multiple outside diameters or plug multiple inner diameters. Essentra offers both general purpose and wide flanged tapered caps.
Our numbered series is made of LDPE and is available in either red or blue. The snug fit protects against damage, dirt, moisture, and corrosion during storage and shipment. Our numbered series tapered caps and plugs are available in over 200 different sizes..
Wide flange caps and plugs assure added protection on bearing surfaces. The wider flange keeps plug from being accidentally pushed down through the mating part while still having the tapered design to fit multiple diameters.
