PAN Fibre Gland Packing

Type VG2 PAN Fibre Gland Packing

Type VG2 is constructed using a composite yarn manufactured from high-quality PAN fibres combination with pure Carbon fibres.

The inbuilt lubrication and superior packing fibre properties of this composite yarn are further enhanced by a thorough graphite impregnation and high-temperature lubricants.

Vulcan VG2 is a soft, comfortable packing, with a square, inter-braided, lattice construction, which creates improved sealing contact with less gland pressure.

The self-lubricating PAN fibre, reinforced with Carbon and heavily coated and impregnated with graphite lubricants, practically eliminates shaft scoring. VG2 gives extended packing life, with reduced shaft wear and gland maintenance.

Type VG2 standard spool length is 8 metres, aside from cross-section sizes 3mm and 5mm where the standard length is 30 metres. Custom lengths can be available - please contact us using the form.

Applications: Vulcan Type VG2 is an exceptional performance and cost-effective general purpose packing suitable for most plant applications. Designed to replace and out-perform traditional Graphited Asbestos, glass fibre and Natural fibre packing. Suitable for use with oils, water, steam, solvents and general chemicals.
