A wide variety of masking products are available for e-coating, chrome plating, anodizing, powder coating and other applications requiring high-heat resistance. The SLP series silicone plugs are constructed of a tapered design and are meant to easily fit into threaded ports or other inside diameters. The SLPP series silicone pull plugs are designed for and most commonly used in “through-hole” applications. It is recommended that these parts be pulled through the threaded or non-threaded hole that required protection until snug. The SLC series rubber caps are ideal for paint masks, protecting threads, tubes or other diameters during painting or coating processes. Soft and flexible, these caps will also conform to irregular shapes and/or applications. Masking products resist heat up to 600° F and can usually be used for several cycles before replacement is required. Ribbed plugs and silicone tapes are also available.
