Modern pipe caps are used in many places around the world, and they are available in a range of colors, sizes, and types. Wherever one finds a pipe in good condition, there’s likely some sort of pipe protection in use. Here, customers can learn more about the benefits and uses of today’s pipe protectors.
The Benefits of Pipe Caps and Plugs
Pipe caps and pipe plugs have many benefits, which include but aren’t limited to:
- Protection of inside tubing and pipe ends from moisture, rust, dust, damage, and foreign substances.
- Easy installation and removal
- Helping to resolve issues arising from poor pipe fitting
- Control of leaks, as plugs help liquids stay inside pipes
- Prevention of contamination
- Flexibility if plastic thread protectors and caps are used
- Prevention of pipe ruptures
Get the Right Protector for Any Application
Pipe protectors are an easy way to protect the ends of PVC, plastic, copper and steel pipe. There are ideally colored, shaped and sized pipe end protectors for any application, and they all serve one critical function: to protect pipes from damage during use, storage, and transportation.
- Plastic end caps are resistant to UV rays and have enough strength and durability to stand up to harsh industrial usage.
- Stretchy vinyl pipe end caps can be shaped to cover the entire pipe end. They can be sealed tightly and are typically cheaper than plastic end caps.
- Tapered pipe caps are available in countless materials, colors, and sizes to fit any application.
- Plug caps are available in female and male styles depending on the pipe being used.
