We carry a large range of asbestos – free compression packing products, in a wide range of sizes.

Compression packings (gland) are produced to suit pump or valve glands or stuffing boxes. They are manufactured by braiding, often pre-treated textile yarns into a square section. The purpose of packing is to form a seal to minimise leakage of the process media.

Compression packings cover a large area of products, with temperatures ranging between -250°C to 650°C.

Listed below are the materials generally used to produce packings.

Graphite, Carbon, PTFE, Polyimide, Arimid, Nickel, Chrome, Acrylic, Cotton, Flax, Ramie and Phenolic
Graphite, Nickel, Chrome, PTFE, Lubricant and Silicone.
