5000W is the standard for the most common steam valves in the industry. Superior to braid-over-core offerings, it delivers a positive, leak-free seal that will last for many years. For extreme steam pressure use 5010. Do not use on pump shafts or any dynamic applications.
The most recommended packing for steam valves, petrochemical and chemical valves, expansion joints, high-temperature groove gasketing and soot blower packing.
