Flexitallic 50 can be used in rotary and reciprocating applications specifically for the marine industry. It has a relatively high level of chemical resistance, extremely wear resistant with low friction properties, resistant to pressure and does not swell or rot in water thus providing a long service life. This is an economic packing for genera water and marine applications. The relatively strong yet conformable nature of Flexitallic style 50 provides high pressure sealing to be achieved over long periods of time. Typical sealing applications include cold and warm fresh and sea water, potable water, solutions with solid particles, oils and solvents.
