Lionpak® 3200

Tough, high performance aramid packing resistant to chemicals at high temperature and with WRAS approval.

  • Potable water
  • Pumps
  • Valves

Formerly known as Duramid, Lionpak 3200 is a tough, high performance packing, cross-plaited from texturised aramid yarns.

Each yarn is uniformly impregnated with PTFE dispersion and a silicone-based lubricant that resists chemical attack at high temperatures.

Lionpak 3200 is WRAS approved for use with hot and cold potable water at up to 85°C (185°F). A cost effective alternative without WRAS approval is also available, please download the Lionpak 3301 datasheet for full details and specification.
