Sure you can, a cap should have come with it and if it did take tip off and screw cap on, if not leave the hardened tip on the cart and store cartage tip facing down so you don't plug the two orifices in the cartage.

You cannot clean the tips and must buy new ones for each use.

Actually it is possible to clean the tips barry. I had a really cheap boss years ago that made us clean the mixing tips after using adhesive befpre it hardened in the tip. We would blow air through it into a rag and then dump a little lacquer thinner in the tip and blow with air again. I personally would rather pay the buck for a new tip then mess around trying to clean one out and have a chance that the mix could be off cause off a little old hardened adhesive in it and messing around cleaning it. Then again, he use to go around and pick shop towels off the floor that weren't used a lot and tell us to reuse them. What is it, about $1.50 for a roll to buy? Some people, He had to have a couple screws loose. You can imagine what the pay was like there, Geez. I've worked for a few doozys.

I had a boss that would resharpen single edge razor blades! Now this was in a collision shop! I don't like to waste, I don't like garbage, and I don't like to buy when I don't need to but sharpening razor blades and cleaning mixing tips sure isn't time well spent when there's money to be made.

re: fusor seam sealer

That's kinda like that commercial where the couple is washing out their old paper towels and hanging them up to dry

Waste is bad, but disposable means "throw away!"

I have been in shops over the years that had the cleaning down pat.

One shop owner had made an add on to his gun cleaner for the tips and he said the bodyman could clean a tip in about 15 minutes.

WOW! How may ping dings could he wipe in that 15 minutes.

Truly penny wise and dollar stupid.
