The packing makes good use of excellent properties of PTFE yarns filled with graphite and with silicon oil, adding generally known mechanical strength of aramide. Special weave of packing GAMFLON AR, which allows reinforcement of edges with aramide, does not reduce movement properties of PTFE.
The packing was developed for users of pumps and fittings encountering problems with highly abrasive media. The packing is also perfect for piston pumps, where to-and-fro motion damages classical packings. Chemical resistance of GAMFLON AR permits the use of this packing with water, oils, liquid fuels, solvents, and medium strong acids and bases..
