A inter-braided from continuous filament, textured, airblown glass yarns. The glass fibres are heavily lubricated and thoroughly impregnated with PTFE dispersion and an inert lubrication, both prior to and subsequent to braiding.
Vulcan's Type VG8D is the same packing but the inert lubricants are replaced by an increased PTFE dispersion. VG8D is designed as a valve packing that is also suitable for a variety of static or slow moving applications up to 800 fpm (4 m/s).
