About Protecting Caps

Protecting caps are commonly used throughout industry, but especially in engineering. They fit on to the head of a screw in a constructional part. Protecting caps protect the screw head from mechanical damage, soiling or corrosion.

Equally, protecting caps can fit over metal hexagon nuts or bolt heads, to give a smarter appearance. At the same time, plastic protecting caps can also be clamped on a polygon nut, with a cylinder casing, overlapping the polygon nut.

Protecting caps are not an optional extra in industry – they’re essential for protecting your equipment. It’s especially important to think about protecting caps during transport and industry processes, when they come into their own.

When selecting protecting caps, think about what your protecting caps should protect, and why. Do you need your protecting caps to resist tolerance, chemicals, heat, cold, or vibrations?

What are the demands for your protecting caps regarding mounting and dismounting ergonomics, colours, softness, automation, etc? How long do you want your protecting caps to last, and do you have any specific requirements regarding cleanliness?

Any there any requirements for your protecting caps concerning packaging, labelling, packing, and delivery?

Finally, should your protecting caps be produced with or without gasket or foam?

If you need protecting caps at reasonable prices, you’d do well to look at a manufacturer like Bluemay – we have some great online deals. Check out our web site.

At Bluemay, we really know about what we are selling, and so can discuss your individual needs for your protecting caps in detail. We’ll ask you a lot of questions about what you need and why!
