Novatex Valve Stem Packing

PRODUCT TYPE: PTFE Jointing & Sealing

Novatex Valve Stem Packing is made from 100% expanded PTFE. This highly pliable material will conform to worn stems and packing glands to help eliminate the need for costly downtime and repair. The unique properties of PTFE assure valve operation even after long periods of inactivity. Novatex Valve Stem Packing will not harden or dry out in service and will normally out-live the life of the valve.
