Easy Pull Masking Caps provide optimum protection for end tip profiles, such as rods, pipes and tubes during manufacturing processes. Typical applications include; anodizing, blasting, powder coating, e-coating and plating.
The caps have a flanged design and an internal seal that provides a secure fit. These caps are easy to fit; to ensure the best possible fit, the inside diameter dimension should be approximately 10 percent smaller than the outside diameter of the part being masked.
Our range is available in different material options with various beneficial properties. Silicone is a premium masking material with high temperature and chemical resistance. EPDM is a more economical material option with lower heat resistance. Both Silicone and EPDM options can be used multiple times.
Expandable Masking Covers are an ideal alternative to a more conventional cap when the part to cover has an awkward shape. The Masking Covers are expandable by stretching with an elasticated end or by stretching through the elasticity of the material. The elasticated cap makes it a looser hold and therefore is best for a general protection during transport and storage or light masking requirement.
The stretched material cap has a stronger hold on the part by gripping and therefore is best for application putting pressure on the part. Their softening point is at 90 degrees Celsius and they can be used up to 100 degrees Celsius.
Our range of Flexible End Caps come in a variety of sizes that are suitable for Metric, BSP and UNF threads. These Flexicaps are durable making them an ideal choice for a multitude of uses.
The attractive vinyl appearance makes them a great choice for finished products. Thanks to their versatility they have a broad range of uses that include; thread protection, dust and moisture control, pipe and stud end colour coding and masking during paint and plating operation.
The flexible PVC (90 Shore) material can withstand high operating temperatures and can be stretched up to 15 percent larger than then manufactured diameter. The specially formulated PVC is unaffected by weather, oxidation, oils and moisture.The caps are extremely pliant and provide excellent chemical resistance. They can also be glued to other PVC items.
They are an economical solution for one-time uses.
High Temperature Tapered Plugs are available as a solid plug or with a hollow core to aid in the compression to fit threaded or unthreaded holes. Its tapered design enables the plug to expand and adapt to the shape of the hole as it is heated, ensuring a firm and tight fit even at high temperatures. Its hardness and strength block gas, water, or chemicals from entering pipes or tubes. These reusable plugs come in a premium high temp silicone material or an economical reduced temp EPDM material.
Silicone: high-quality masking material that can withstand temperatures up to 600F | 316C. EDPM is a reusable and somewhat less expensive material, making it slightly less resistant to high temperatures but of superior chemical resistance. It can withstand temperatures up to 425F | 218C. Used in chemical, machining applications and industrial equipment.
Masking Cone Plugs are a versatile masking solution that can be used as a plug or as a cap. The tapered design allows the part to plug a range of inside diameter sizes and to cap a range of outside diameter sizes. These plugs are ideal for a range of masking applications, including; powder coating, e-coating, plating and anodizing.
The range is available in a choice of materials that include premium Silicone and economical EPDM. Silicone benefits from a high temperature rating and can be used multiple times. EPDM is also reusable with a lower heat resistance, but superior chemical resistance.
Star Tubing is a masking solution that is ideal for long studs and pins, where caps are too short. The star-shaped profile allows the part to be flexible and fits easily on to tight diameters.
They tubes are highly flexible and are able to fit several ranges. They easily fit over threaded studs, non-threaded tubes or irregular shapes. They have good heat resistance.
Straight Caps are an ideal solution for protecting and masking parts undergoing a variety of masking processes, including; painting, plating, powder coating, anodising, sand blasting, abrasive chemical processing, and processes that expose parts to high temperatures. They are highly versatile and can also be used as a plug to mask threaded or non-threaded holes.
These Masking Caps and Plugs can be used to protect studs, pins, tube ends and other applications that require protection. They are available in a choice of materials with a wide range of colour options to suit your project requirements.
High Temperature Tubing is an excellent masking solution to fit over longer parts, where standard caps are too short. The tubing can be used with a cap, if required. These caps be be applied to long studs and pins.
Supplied on a roll; the tubing can be cut to the required length. By cutting long also creates an easy pull tab, for swift removal. It can be masked off thru-hole by utilising the outside diameter of the tube and pulling it through.
The tubing is flexible and conforms to irregularities. It will not melt or harden and can be reused - making it an economical product.
Popular applications include; powder coating, e-coating, plating and anodising.
A range of Masking Washer Caps that can be applied as a protective cap for threaded and non-threaded end tip.
Although the product is primarily designed as a cap, the integrated washer masks of grounding and also provides edge protection to ensures that the application hole is safe from contaminants and damage. This highly versatile masking solution can also be inverted and used to plug holes.
