Tapered Caps & Plugs

 (6 product groups)

What are tapered caps & plugs? 

Tapered caps and plugs have a gradually varying diameter from bottom to top, with a wider bottom and narrower top. They are designed to securely fit over a range of tube, pipe, or bar end diameters, providing protection and preventing contamination.

Applications and processes for using tapered caps and plugs include:

  • Hydraulic applications
  • Masking and powder coating
  • Pipe end protection
  • Thread protection
  • Tube end protection
  • High temperature applications

  • Our tapered caps and plugs are made from a variety of materials including plastic, TPE, EPDM, PVC, and silicone. They offer a versatile solution for both capping and plugging needs and are often used as temporary caps to protect the inside from dust, dirt, moisture, and other contaminants during storage, shipping, or in-between processing stages.

    Choose from heavy duty, standard and wide-flange tapered caps and plugs.

    Tapered Caps & Plugs - Standard

    In stock In production

    Tapered Plastic Plug Caps have two functions; plug and cap.

    The Tapered Plug is used to plug the end of tubing, pipes, and bars. Tapered Pipe Plugs are desiged to fit snugly on to the end of a tube to keep liquid, dirt and other ingres out of the cavity - or indeed to help retain the contents that is within. Alternatively, Cap Plugs can be used as Tapered Caps. The Tapered Cap fits neatly over the outside diameter at the end of a tube, pipe or bar. This prevents dirt, dust, moisture, liquids and other contaniments from entering the cavity opening during manufacturing, masking, storage, and transportation.

    Our Tapered Cap Plug range is made from Low Density Polyethylene (LDPE). This durable Plastic Plug Caps material protects the application from damage, as well as offering corrosion resistance.The Tapered Plug Caps range is suitable for a wide range of hole diameters, so you're sure to find a solution to suit your project requirments.
