This dimensionally stable, firm, high-density PTFE continuous filament fiber packing is useful in slower shaft speed applications.  Its PTFE dispersion reduces friction and prevents leakage through the braid. Style 5888 is resistant to all chemicals except molten uranium salts. It is completely asbestos-free, with very little water absorption.

  • High density, dimensionally-stable
  • Very little water absorption
  • Ideal for valve and slower shaft speed applications
  • PTFE dispersion ensures low friction and prevents leakage through the braid
  • Resistant to most chemicals
