Lionpak® 2300

100% GFO yarn packing that is highly versatile and adds a new dimension to reliability and performance.

TYPICAL APPLICATIONS
  • Valves

Lionpak 2300 is a 100% GFO yarn packing that is highly versatile and adds a new dimension to reliability and performance.

Made totally from WL Gore & Associates' highly developed GFO yarn - combining the benefits of ePTFE, graphite and high temperature lubricants - this cross-plaited packing offers the ideal balance between density, resilience, strength and durability.

A cost effective alternative without WRAS approval is also available,please download Lionpak 2302 datasheet for full details and specification.

  • Extended service life - by up to 400% in harsh environments
  • Well proven with aggressive media
  • High thermal conductivity for cool running
  • Low coefficient of friction and minimal shaft wear
  • Very good start-up and emergency running characteristics
