Tough and versatile carbon packing.

Style 98 is manufactured from high purity (95%+ carbon assay) premium carbon staple yarn. Individual yarns are single-end coated and single-end dried prior to braiding with high temperature, non-petroleum-based lubricant with graphite dispersion.


  • Low coefficient of friction for longer equipment life and reduced shaft wear
  • High thermal conductivity means process runs cooler and packing lasts longer
  • Excellent chemical resistance
  • Low chloride certification available


  • Min. Temperature            -328°F / -200°C
  • Max. Temperature:            850°F / 455°C
  • Max. Rotary Pump Pressure:    500 psi / 34.5 bar
  • Max. Valve Pressure:        2,500 psi / 275.8 bar
  • Max. Rotary Pump Speed:    4,000 fpm / 20.32 meters/sec


  • No known pressure limits have been determined for Style 98 when combined as end-ring material with die-formed GRAPH-LOCK® center rings.
  • Certifiable to less than 200 ppm leachable chlorides on request.
