​Reinforced, braided, graphite packing with a corrosion inhibitor. The carbon yarn reinforcement is provided within the graphite tape yarn as well as the braided construction.


  • 1400R forms a homogeneous mass under gland pressure, so that leakage cannot penetrate the packing set.
  • The all-carbon/graphite set withstands higher shaft speeds while limiting shaft friction. 
  • The structural carbon fiber reinforcement prevents extrusion when 1400R sets are installed in valves at higher pressures.

In addition to its excellent sealing capabilities in rotating equipment, 1400R is a superior valve sealing material. This dual purpose design makes it a truly universal mechanical packing.​
