Our range of Plastic, Rubber & Metal Components

End Caps
Our range of caps includes a vast array of products which we have created with consumers, businesses and specialists in mind. As a plastic and rubber manufacturer and distributor we have a lot of experience in creating custom and basic solutions for a huge range of applications, we are one of the most well known Cap producers and manufacturers in the UK with one of the biggest range of masking and high temperature caps. A lot of our caps are overmoulded, dip moulded and injection moulded, however they can be made using a variety of methods to find the most cost effective one to give you the component or part you require, for a slight fraction of the price.
As a plastic & rubber manufacturer and distributor we create and design a massive variety of plug solutions to suit a whole host of real-world activities aswell as for specialists uses which can include powder coating, shot blasting etc. Our range covers a variety of high temperature, standard and other products which can be used for a range of plugging activities including sealing, masking & protecting which are some of their main uses. A lot of our plug solutions are dip moulded & injection moulded although examples such as sealing plugs are overmoulded which is a slightly more costly process but can often create a stronger, higher quality product.
Furniture & Chair Feet
Our Furniture & Chair replacement covers, ferrules & feet are one of our most popular manufactured parts, each one has been created to give your chair or piece of furniture a brand new lease of life with excellent grip, durability and resistance properties. Not only do they provide a whole host of benefits in terms of pro-longing the life of the chair, furniture or chair leg, they come with anti-marking properties which prevent them from causing damage to your flooring. This is huge inside schools due to the hardwood flooring that is often used which can mark extremely easily if the wrong feet or inserts are used. As a plastic & rubber manufacturer and distributor we offer a range of furniture and chair replacements and are able to create them using injection moulds, dip moulds and even extrusions in extremely rare cases.
Tube Inserts
We supply a huge selection of ribbed plastic tube inserts, threaded inserts and Metal inserts and tube fittings to suit all uses that you may have. All of our ribbed inserts, tube fittings and tube inserts are made from the highest quality materials possible whilst maintaining their cost-effectiveness, this ensures that we have the perfect product for you and your application. They are regularly used across a number of different industries to replace and repair tube ends, this can be for either aesthetic or functional purposes such as when used as Chair feet inserts which our Round angled internal fitting inserts are famously used for. Each plastic ribbed insert has a huge array of different uses, these uses include use as replacement feet, tube protector fittings or as finishing inserts to provide a clean, sleek look to a tube which our chrome inserts offer. Tube inserts and fittings are used in almost every industry there is, from manufacturing to the education industry where they are often placed in the end of school chairs to provide grip and stability, whilst preventing potential damage to flooring and chair legs. Where-as in manufacturing industries they may be used to provide structural integrity to a tube whilst providing a functional finish to prevent ingress of dirt, moisture or any unwanted substance. We always ensure that we keep a large range of different sizes and variations to suit all uses that you may have, we also keep a number of colours in stock for industries that require specific colouring for coding etc. We can also offer custom sizing and variants where necessary, meaning we can provide a bespoke solution for you and your business no matter what your requirements may be. We are always happy to offer free samples on our tube fittings so that you can try them and see if they work for your particular application, preventing any unnecessary stress from having the wrong part that you do not require.
High Temp Masking
As a plastic and rubber manufacturer a lot of our products work excellently for high temperature masking purposes, a lot of our rubbers have excellent resistance properties from acids, heat and even petrol. We also offer a range of high temperature masking tapes which are widely used inside plenty of industries to cover, protect and prevent the covering of an application, this removes the need for more costlier, bulkier masking and can simply be torn off and thrown away when necessary. Again, similar to many of our other ranges we offer both specialist and standard solutions for all types of projects, whether you are masking off a corner of an alloy or you need to mask an entire car, we have the solutions for you! We work closely with moulders in the UK to provide the best quality high temperature masking products possible.
Adjustable Feet
Adjustable feet are an extremely popular overmoulded part that we manufacture here. The overmoulding combines its nylon base with a steel thread, this combines together to create a strong machine or mechanical foot that can be screwed in to any application you desire to act as a foot. This foot can then be adjusted to a specific height as well as some of our more specialist options which allow for a tilt or slight articulation which is excellent for use on uneven surfaces. These adjustable feet, machine feet or threaded feet work excellently within industry and factories due to their heavy stature, we stock a range of weight rated and standard weighted options which provide the best value for money for the less heavier applications, although our weight rated have excellent weight capabilities of up to 2000kg which is exceptional for an overmoulded product.
Our Rubber grommets are manufactured using our high quality standard of rubber, they are an injection moulded part although they can be overmoulded or even injection moulded if the project required so. Our rubber grommet solutions include a variety of high performance and standard products which excel in different situations, grommets are widely used for threading through cables, therefore we aim to manufacture a large quantity of them as popularity increases. These tend to be a disposable part or component as they are regularly used in day to day life therefore are a component which is constantly in demand, and therefore constantly being manufactured.
Edging Strip
Vital Parts produces a huge quantity of edging strip for such industries as automotive, construction, aerospace etc. available in a range of different profiles and materials to suit, or with a self adhesive backing for ease of application. Edging strip is very popular to prevent exposure of sharp edges and gives a nice even finish to the application, we can produce edging strip which ranges from a reinforced metal which helps hold itself to the application, to a custom high temperature silicone edging strip which will be able to withstand temperatures up 315 degree Celsius. Our edging strip is manufactured using extrusion moulding, this provides the most cost effective method as it can simply be cut to size, this allows for custom sizing and profiles to suit, as a custom manufacturer and distributor we are more than happy to cut to size, as well as create custom profiles for people and their projects.

A lot of our school & office products are manufactured using dip moulding and injection moulding techniques due to the complex nature of some of the products that are created, for example desk cable tidies which require two separate moulds to be joined together once baked.

Heat Shrink
Heat shrink is a widely used product across a number of industries, it's made from a Polyolefin plastic which is what gives it its 'shrinking' properties. Heatshrink is commonly used within the electrics industry to repair frayed or exposed cables and to join them together, this helps to repair them and prevent it from happening again. The different heatshrink products that we offer are Heat shrink caps, Adhesive lined heat shrink, Heat shrink 2:1 & Heat shrink 3:1, this helps to give a full selection of products to ensure we have the ideal choice for you.
