Benefiting from acid resistance, these panel plugs are ideal for metal panels. The PVC version can withstand temperatures of up to 50C, and the TPR option can withstand temperatures ranging between -40C and 135C - making it a super versatile choice.

We also have a range plastic blanking plugs in black Ethylene-butylacrylate Copolymer (EBA) plug blanking options - suitable in applications where body plugs are required to protect against sharp edges. This plug can withstand temperatures from -30C up to a maximum of +50C. Perhaps browse our range of hole plugs made from clear copolyester - a strong thermoplastic resin that's highly popular. This blanking plug features a flat head that helps minimise distortion.

Blanking caps offer a clean finish and are and easy to use, quick solution. They large selection to suit hole diameter and panel thickness, so you are sure to find an option to suit your application needs.

Body Plugs

These Body plugs are great for closing panel cavities and firmly sealing apertures or holes such as sharp edges. They act as a protective barrier, preventing dust, dirt, moisture, and other contaminants from entering and potentially causing harm or compromising the enclosed space's integrity.

It has a clean finish and a tight and secure fit thanks to a push fit. They can tolerate temperatures ranging from -40C to 135C. Used in various applications, including automotive, industrial equipment, and machinery.
