High-temperature masking caps are commonly used in manufacturing and finishing processes. These caps cover and protect specific areas of a component or surface that should not be exposed to specific processes, such as painting, powder coating, plating, anodizing, or other treatments that involve high temperatures, chemicals, or physical processes.
These good value caps are vital in supporting your various projects and applications.

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, plating and general paint lines.
This range has several style options, include a range with a flanged design and an internal seal that provides a secure fit or options that feature an ergonomic finger pull-tab for easier removal.
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. Whereas, Soft PVC is a more economical solution also with chemical resistance, a reduced heat resistance and is for one-time uses.
A lanyard designed to connect and secure two separate components. It features a securing loop on one end and a mounting hole on the other, which provides a secure fix to connecting objects.
The lanyard can accommodate a wide range of applications, including cables, dust caps, enclosures and lids. Double fixing slots on the securing loop help reduce the risk of failure for heavy duty applications. When using for heavy duty applications; simply secure the loop through both fixing slots for safe mounting.
The material is highly flexible and can stretch up to three times its nominal length.
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.
Flexible End Caps are made from flexible material that is able to stretch on to larger diameters for a snug fit. They provide protection to threads and non-threaded tips.
The cap features a hanging tab, which allows them to be used with wire hooks. They are an ideal solution for masking applications. The caps also benefit from acid resistance.
Flexible End Caps are made from flexible material that is able to stretch on to larger diameters for a snug fit. They provide excellent protection for threaded applications.
The cap features a hanging tab, which allows them to be used with wire hooks. They are an ideal solution for masking applications.
The caps are highly resistance to shredding, making them a durable product. The Green PVC option is suitable for use in oil and grease applications.
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 Flexible Caps with an ergonomic-friendly pull-tab design for easy fitting and removal. Suitable for use on threaded or plain applications.
The unique design fits a range of applications and thread sizes including Metric, UNF and BSP. The range includes options with a six-sided design.
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.
Tapered paper caps are a type of protective cap used to cover the ends of tubes, pipes or other cylindrical objects. They are made from a mixture of post-consumer and virgin materials, making them a recyclable option.
Ideal for painting and powder coating applications and can help prevent damage and contamination, ensuring that tubes and pipes are in good condition. It can withstand operating temperatures of up to 204 C.
