The right packing for reliability and savings.

Plant operators often are not aware that similar looking compression packings do not perform the same, leading to significant hidden costs. While procurement has a tight hold on the upfront packing cost, the greater cost takes place in operation.

Packings with 100% GORE GFO Fiber can provide maintenance engineers with consistently high performance general service packing for wide application and use, including sealing shafts on high-speed pumps, mixers, agitators or any other equipment with rotating or reciprocating shafts. They don’t become hard or brittle, are temperature and chemically tolerant and easy to install and remove. Plant operators can be assured that packings with 100% GORE GFO Fiber will consistently deliver the trouble-free performance they need.

Typical Applications

Compression packings typically used in:

  • Pulp and paper manufacturing
  • Mining and minerals
  • Power generation
  • Municipal wastewater treatment
  • Steel manufacturing
  • Marine
  • Petrochemical
  • Chemical processing


Not for use in food, drug, cosmetic or medical device manufacturing, processing, or packaging operations.
