Default Identifying caps, PIO?

Hi

I have a couple of capacitors in a box that I would like to Identify.

I was told that these where PIO caps but I donít really know

They are made of Alu and looks like Electrolytcaps. And one side is marked with a line. But neither end is attached to the outside of the cap.

On the cap itís printed:

OK

My caps are perfectly fine. No leaks here. The rubber is fat and nice..

Is it a good brand, exept the risk of leaks?

Yes, it is a good brand and very expensive in Japan's market.
However, the brand is no longer exist or stop production.
Leaks is the only problem reported as I know.
