Ramie – extremely low frictional characteristics where minimal shaft wear is essential. Rot resistant and ideal for marine use.

Synthetic – excellent multi-service packing for a wide variety of uses throughout a plant.

PTFE – the first widely used synthetic material. Offers wide Ph and temperature range with broad fluid compatibility.

Carbon – type packing is similar to Graphite in capability. Lower in cost than Graphite with slightly reduced performance in all areas.

Graphite – materials are preferred for use in very high temperatures and high shaft speeds. Wide fluid compatibility. Excellent heat dissipation.

Glass – packing uses textured fiberglass filaments with or without wire inserted reinforcement. Excellent for use as high temperature packing and as a replacement for asbestos.
