M3 EPDM Rubber Cap is a popular choice covering M3 Studs and screws during finishing operations and final finish.

The M3 EPDM Rubber Cap is suitable for many applications, from general protection to high temperature masking. Customers can buy a range of sizes off the shelf at AFAC. EPDM rubber caps are black.

EPDM (ethylene propylene diene monomer) synthetic rubber  is an elastomer with a variety of applications and manufacturing methods.

Manufactured from EPDM, EPDM rubber caps are ideal for masking up to 160•c. The high temperature resistance means they can be re-used over and over. When used as rubber caps, the EPDM Rubber cap is simply pushed over the stud or pin requiring masking. As a plug, it is often best to push the EMDP Rubber caps into the hole to be masked, using a radiused end insertion tool, or on larger sizes, the end of a pencil or pen. After processing, the EPDM Rubber cap is simply removed, while the component is still warm. Any coating build up can be removed manually, or in a rumbler.

When using the M3 EPDM Rubber Cap for general protection or aesthetic use the cap is fitted securely and remains in place.
