Wide Selection of Various Tubing End Caps

By Alvin Green Subscribe to RSS | July 11th 2012 | Views:

There are numerous types of tubing end caps or covers for protecting the desired equipment which also serve to beautify the environment. These tubing covers function to finish the end of any steel tube neatly as a protection from sharp edges. The tough materials of these tubing covers are meant to resist possible cuts from sharp tubing or steel ends.

Application needs

The industry is very creative in designing relevant tubing covers and bar caps to meet the right application at the right environment. One can select tubing ends from round ferrule caps or angle iron end caps to ribbed tubing covers as end finishes.

Round ferrule caps are made of low density polyethylene which offers a neat finish to tubular steel products while silicone tubing covers can withstand hot temperatures up to 600°F (315°C). Silicone tubing caps for the end make an excellent solution for covering longer parts that jut out if standard caps do not suffice.

Masking can be exercised with the O.D. silicone tube running through which can be cut into the desired length. This gives an easy pull tab with long cuts which allows irregular lengths to be utilized as desired. Such tubing ends can be reused as they are made of tough materials which do not harden or melt easily. These end caps can be found in powder coating, plating, anodizing and e-coating applications.


There are numerous varieties of tubing covers; the industry offers packaging tube caps, tubing reducers, square and ribbed tube covers. There are finned tubing plugs which are made of copper or aluminum and square threaded caps made of plastic.

Other favored materials for tubing covers include metal and other heavy duty materials. Light weight end caps are also available for lighter components of different applications in the home or small offices.

End caps may come in different sizes and styles to fit the application or enhance the component aesthetics. There are ribbed and angled end caps of square or round shapes depending on the consumers’ preference. Ferrule end caps and domed tube caps are great choices as end covers for the equipment.

Large equipment is not forgotten with the availability of oversized end caps for tubal components. End caps for tubing can be accessorized with caster sockets, chrome finished tube inserts and load bearing glides to support the appropriate applications. Other accessories for tubing caps include adjustable feet inserts that can be ribbed or plain.
