Lionpak® 9500

A versatile natural yarn packing with PTFE lubrication.

  • Pumps
  • Valves

Formerly known as Ramiex, Lionpak 9500 is a versatile, high-performance packing, cross-plaited from top quality bleached ramie fibre yarns that are impregnated with an advanced PTFE dispersion lubricant. The result is a consistent packing of uniform density and compressibility.

Ramie, a tropical nettle plant, produces a fibre of extreme durability, rot resistance and significantly greater strength than flax, cotton or hemp.

A cost effective alternative is also available, please download the Lionpak 9501 datasheet for full details and specification.

  • Outstanding extrusion resistance
  • Outstanding abrasion resistance
  • Outstanding rot resistance
  • Low friction and low wear
  • Kind to shafts and sleeves

  • Used with great success in the mining and quarrying industries on reciprocating pumps working at 30 MPa with water containing highly abrasive particles
  • Also used for water-based hydraulic systems, pulp and paper processing with cellulose slurry, brine circulation, cooling water systems, and with fluids that crystallise or contain suspended solids
