The packing, made of raw film twists of pure PTFE
dispersion resins, is suitable for valves and pumps used in food processing,
pharmaceuticals, paper mills, fiber plants, where high purity and corrosion
resistance is required.
Packings made from PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene) are a
mainstay of the mechanical compression packing industry. PTFE is well known for
its outstanding resistance to chemical attack, low coefficient of friction and
wide temperature tolerance including cryogenic service. This wide flexibility
makes PTFE packings a popular choice for those difficult applications where
strong solvents, corrosive chemicals and oxidising media require to be sealed.
ClingSeal have harnessed these properties in our range of PTFE based gland
packings to give an enormously wide sealing capability in both valve and pumping
