Tapered Caps & Plugs

 (9 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.

    Wide Flange Tapered Caps and Plugs offers additional protection to the surrounding area on the bearing surface. The wider flange keeps the part from being accidently pushed down through the mating part. Designed to be used as a plug or a cap. The tapered profile allows the part to plug muliple inner diameters or cap multiple outside diameters.

    These dual function components are typically used to protect against damage, dirt, moisture, and other corrision during storage and shipping.

    Featureing a straight forward push-fit design, they are easy to insall and remove.

    • Prevents the plug from being accidentally pushed down through the contact piece.
    • Protects threaded and non-threaded pipes, ports, and access points against damage, dirt, moisture, debris, and corrosion.
    • Suitable for use in hydraulic systems, automotive components, chemical or medical industries.

    High Temperature Tapered Plugs

    In stock In production

    This range of high temperature masking plugs features Silicone Rubber Tapered Plugs, EPDM Tapered Plugs and other Tapered Rubber Plugs made from Thermoplastic Rubber (TPR).

    This extensive range of Tapered Plugs is available as a solid plug or with a hollow core, to aid in compression. Solid and hollow core options are available in our EPDM and High Temperature Silicone Plugs ranges. The hollow centre provides a cost-effective solution for larger sizes. The hollow design is more flexible than solid plugs, and allows for easier application.

    Our Tapered Rubber Plug range features Univesal Plugs made from TPR. The tapered plug is designed to mask holes without masking the surrounding areas, and a pull tab allows for easy installation and removal. Suitable for temperatures up to 125C.

    • Colours: Black, Blue, Green, Natural, Pink, Red and Yellow
    • Simple push-fit design
