General Purpose in aqueous environments 

Description:A top performing flax-based packing. This dense and flexible, yet compressible, product is plaited from good quality flax yarns, each uniformly impregnated with a tenacious tallow lubricant then coated with graphite. Flax yarns are selected for strength, durability, rot resistance and lubricant retention properties.

Typical applications: General service in hydraulic rams, valves reciprocating pumps and accumulators, particularly in aqueous environments where the tallow lubricant minimises friction and helps protect contacting metal surfaces.

Prime Features: Ideal for water based media. Flexible and easy to fit. Lubricates and protects surfaces.

Chemical Properties:Compatible with media in the range pf pH 6-10

How Supplied: All popular square sections from 3mm to 25mm, boxed in 8m lengths. Larger cross sections manufactured to order. Also supplied as split preformed rings and sets. Full fitting instructions are included.
