Vinyl is a flexible material that is commonly used as a protective or decorative cap. Compared to most hard plastic caps, vinyl caps provide better sealing and won’t leave any residue on threads during removal. Vinyl is designed to be easy to install, yet create an airtight seal that prevents them from falling off once they’re on.
Vinyl also has great chemical resistance compared to most other plastics and silicone, making them ideal for plating applications.
