PTFE Packing or Teflon Packing is braided with high purity PTFE (Polytetrafluoroethylene, Teflon) filament. PTFE material has a low friction and excellent resistance to chemicals. PTFE Braided Packing is resilient, chemical resistant, self-lubricating, and withstand high linear speed and pressure with minimum wearing to the shaft. PTFE Packing can be used as a valve and pump packing material. It is especially good for corrosive media, high speed application, or applications that require clean and minimum contamination material.
