Lionpak® 9602

A mineral fibre packing for high temperature static and dynamic sealing duties.

  • High temperature
  • Static sealing
  • Valves

Lionpak 9602 comprises an interlocked braid of fibrous form, inorganic refractory oxides - silica fibre with no metallic or ceramic content.

It is impregnated with anti-frictional graphite flake and James Walker’s proprietary, high temperature, graphite-based dispersion. It also incorporates a metal corrosion inhibitor.

  • Suitable for many high temperature duties
  • Resistant to wear and abrasion
  • Corrosion inhibitor safeguards metallic interfaces from galvanic corrosion
  • Resistant to high temperatures

  • Recommended for hydro-testing of heat exchangers; also for general duties with furnace and oven doors
  • Suitable for duties with superheated steam and saturated steam, water, dyes, chemicals, non-oxidising liquids and gases
  • This product is also suitable for use on valves and centrifugal pumps

Valve Stem Duties

  • Maximum operating temperature: +550°C (+1022°F)
  • Minimum operating temperature: -50°C (-58°F)
  • Maximum system pressure: 8 MPa/80 bar (1160 psi)

Centrifugal Pumps and Rotary Equipment

  • Maximum operating temperature: +550°C (+1022°F)
  • Minimum operating temperature: -50°C (-58°F)
  • Maximum system pressure: 2 MPa/20 bar (290 psi)
  • Maximum shaft speed: 10 m/s (1969 fpm)

Static Duties

  • Maximum operating temperature: +550°C (+1022°F)
  • Minimum operating temperature: -50°C (-58°F)
  • Maximum static pressure dependent on application, please contact us for further details

Compatible with media in the range pH 0-14.

  • All popular square sections from 3 mm (1/8") to 50 mm (2") in boxes containing 8 m (26' 3"), in coil form or on spools as detailed in the product datasheet
  • Also supplied as split preformed rings and sets
  • Please refer to the product datasheet for spool ordering information

  • Average diameter of the mineral fibre used is over 6 μm (236 μin), which is considered non-hazardous to health. No protection for breathing, eye, hand or body is required by the World Health Organisation or European Union for the material’s normal handling, storage or use.
  • For further details please contact us to request a copy of our Safety Data Sheet (SDS)
  • Note that normal ceramic fibres, as often used in the manufacture of very high temperature compression packings, are around 3 μm (118 μin) in diameter. These much finer fibres are considered hazardous to health, with WHO and EU restrictions applied to the products that contain them.
