The M6 flanged cap is specifically designed to suit M6 threaded studs, screws and bolts. This part has a 15mm diameter flange for masking the area around an M6 stud. Made from silicone rubber, it’s good for powder coating and other high temperature environments.
The BAKEWELL FLANGED CAPS are stocked in most popular sizes from M3 to M12, with varying flange diameters to cater for differing customer needs.
As, like all BAKEWELL products, these items are manufactured from temperature resistant silicone rubber. This is colour coded on popular sizes for ease of identification, the M6 flanged cap is black. They can be used in many finishing operations such as electro-static powder coating, E-Coat, anodising & plating.
Application is simply to push over the stud after any pre-cleaning operations, processing, and pull off after stoving, preferably while still hot. A quick twist tends to deliver a cleaner finish. Any coating build up can be removed by rubbing between finger and thumb, or by rumbling.
