PAN Fibre Gland Packing

Type VT6 Tank Lid Gland Packing

Type VT6 is a static use variant of our Type VT2 which has been specifically designed and produced for Man-Lids on Tanks. VT6 is dense, square inter-braided from Poly Acrylic Nitrile (PAN) fibres that are thoroughly impregnated with PTFE Dispersion.

Increasing environmental awareness and legislation make consideration of the material, braid quality and performance of Tank Lid packing of paramount importance. Vulcan VT6 is widely used in the static and road tank industry as the quality example of a braided tank packing.

For the increased resilience of a rubber core, combined with the chemical resistance of PTFE,  we also offer our FEP Encapsulated Silicone Rubber Tank Lid Seals in a variety of sizes to suit all common Tank Lids and cross sections to customer preference.

Type VT6 standard spool length is 30 metres in cross sections 14mm and 16mm. Custom lengths can be available - please contact us using the form.

Applications: Man-Lids, Tank Covers and Hatches against all chemicals that are compatible with PTFE.
