Vulcan VP1 100% GORE PTFE Graphite Gland Packing – 8 Metre Box

Vulcan VP1 is 100% GORE fibre packing. This remarkable yarn is constructed from PTFE and graphite blended and then locked, and treated with a high temperature, break-in lubricant. VP1 is an outstanding packing for use in aggressive or arduous duties including the most difficult chemical environments


It is essentially chemically inert over the entire PH range. The unique combination of locked graphite and PTFE creates a yarn with very high thermal conductivity, that does not harden, shrink, swell nor dry out and that is exceptionally smooth running with negligible shaft wear. User experience with G1 fibre has shown that, in practically all cases, greatly extended service life can be expected. In order to obtain maximum benefit from this fibre, VP1 is square interbraided via a CROSS-LOK process. The construction of VP1 increases the durability of the packing and reduces the gland pressure required to perform a seal. Periods between gland maintenance and packing replacement are thus even further extended and type VP1’s CROSS-LOK braided help overcome extrusion problems, which can be one negative of this fibre, particularly in lower quality braids.

Applications – For use wherever the value of the best quality and material packing can be realised. Since the actual purchase cost of a packing is typically only 3% of the true utilisation cost, We recommend these PTFE graphite packings for all possible applications. Thye will increase service life whilst minimising wear and gland adjustments, against nearly all media in static, rotary and reciprocating uses.

1/8″ = 3.18mm / 1/4″ = 6.35mm / 5/16″ = 7.95mm / 3/8″ = 9.53mm / 7/16″ = 11.13mm / 1/2″ = 12.70mm / 9/16″ = 14.30mm / 5/8″ = 15.88mm / 3/4″ = 19.05mm / 7/8″ = 22.23mm / 1″ = 25.4mm
