Q: Can I get free samples?
A: Yes. We urge our customers to try samples before purchasing to ensure a perfect fit.

Q: How many samples can you send me?
A: We'll typically send you 2-3 samples of each part so you can test size, material or color..  If you're using the samples for protoyping, we can send you a larger supply.

Q: How long will it take to get my samples?
A: All standard sample requests will be processed within 24 hours (business days)
 

COLORS

Q: Can you do color matching?
A: Yes. Our engineers at Caplugs can assist you in finding the perfect color.

Q: Can I get parts in another color?
A: Our catalog parts are stocked in different standard colors. If your looking for a color other than the stock color we will be there to assist your needs.

Q: What is the best material and color for outdoor use?
A: Low density polyethylene material in the color black would work best for outdoor applications. This color offers resistance to UV rays as it acts as a natural UV stabilizer with 2% carbon-loading. Please request assistance from our Technical Sales department for this type of application because there may be other options based on climate.
