This packing is based on braided end rings of expanded pure graphite reinforced with carbon yarn corners. It has high density expanded graphite disks with permeation barrier and uniquely impregnated high density expanded graphite adapter rings and low density expanded graphite sealing ring with special friction reducing coating.
The product is designed for use in valve applications.
