329 Stern-Lon Flax for Marine Industry
Chesterton 329 is a formable packing originating from its square plait braided shape. To avoid any sudden and dramatic corrosion, it’s a graphite free packing. It was first saturated with concentrated PTFE dispersion to encourage non-flowing lubricity and to hold back the process of degrading. A plasticizing ‘Break-in’ lubricant is incorporated to give compressibility, flexibility and good packing-to-shaft contact. To prevent friction, a finely divided fluorocarbon powder is fixed into the surface of the packing.
370 - High temperature, carbon yarn
Chesterton 370 is produced from a high quality carbon yearn. Particles of pure graphite, high-temperature oils and molybdenum are all incorporated to act as blocking agents for 370. To gate high temperature capability in a non-oxidizing environment, this means that the carbon yarn is a low-friction.
412-W - White, synthetic composite yarn
Chesterton 412-W joins a formulated break-in lubricant with a newly existing synthetic composite yarn. Tensile strength is 10 times better than typical packing fibres when it’s provided with constant filament centres. Chesterton 412-W can absorb twice the PTFE ‘blocking agents’ of conventional packing when it’s incorporated with fibrous covering. 412-W maintains density because the migration of blocking agents is prevented by Chesterton interbraid construction. It can also maintain constant lubrication throughout the break-in process.
425 - Food grade, PTFE filament
Chesterton 425 is made with a white oil lubricant and a PTFE filament. You will find it works most effectively when used in valves and in rotating equipment like agitators, blenders & mixers. Chesterton 425 respects the USDA requirements for FDA specification 21 CFR, minimal food contact and 177.1550 Perfluorocarbon resins.
477-1 - Continuous filament carbon yarn
Chesterton 477-1 joins a superior blocking agent with a new yarn formulation. The strength and the flexibility is provided from new low modulus yarn- this causes 477-1 strong yet still easily bent. 477-1 contains a high purity dispersion which prevent being able to make their way through gases and liquids of the packing.
477-1T - Non-contaminating, non-staining carbon yarn.
Chesterton 477-1T is thoroughly saturated with PTFE so that is doesn’t contaminate or stain the tough, yet pliable, carbon yarn packing. It’s use was for the tough applications in the pulp and paper industry. When the PTFE and the carbon yarn combine, it increases the 477-1T chemical resistant properties. It’s a brilliant product for reducing/eliminating flush water from a stuffing box when it’s combined with 1400R in rotating equipment.
1400R - Reinforced braided graphite tape

It’s particularly designed for the use in general service applications like mixers, blenders and agitators.
1740 - Non- asbestos, Kevlar yarn
Chesterton 1740 uses KEVLAR* yarn and coated thoroughly with PTFE and other lubricants to produce its interbraid packing. In order to dematerialize heat, the yarn has to be covered in lubricant. 1740 offers combined resistance to pressure, temperature, chemicals and wear.
1760 - PTFE yarn lubricated with graphite.
Chesterton 1760 is an original PTFE lubricated yarn packing made with Graphite particles. Chesterton 1761 differentiates from 1760 as it’s a white colour and doesn’t stain. It’s PTFE yarn is lubricated with an original heat conducting compound.

1400R - Reinforced braided graphite tape
~~Chesterton 1400R is a special kind of Graphite tape packing with the carbon yarn reinforcement provided within it. In order for the leakage to not pass through the packing set, 1400R forms a homogeneous mass under gland pressure. Whilst shaft friction is limited, the shaft speeds is higher because the all Carbon/Graphite set holds it in place. Extrusion is prevented when 1400R sets are fitted valves at higher pressures all due to structural Carbon fiber. Not only is it a rotating equipment sealant, it works brilliantly as a valve sealing material.

High temperatures don’t affect the Carbon/Graphite base materials because the API 589 fire test ensures the highest safety in hazardous services. More efficient transfer of the gland load to the packing is provided by the original wedge shape of the sealing rings. The biggest feature to this design is reduced stem friction because it still allows the valve actuator to respond to system changes, faster and more precisely.
5800E Control Valve Kit - Sealing system for AOV's
Chesterton 5800E Control Valve Kit combined packing set that gives an effective use of Chesterton’s original wedge shaped, die-formed sealing set along with Chesterton’s 477-1 braided carbon end rings. This packing set has been proven to seal effectively at really low VOC emissions levels. The original style wedge shape of the sealing rings makes the packing set more responsive to gland adjustments as well as giving it a more reliable transfer. The valve will respond better to any changes that may occur because the stem friction is reduced. In order to help prevent electrolytic pitting, passive corrosion inhibitors are saturated within the packing set.
This packing set is specially designed to be used on pneumatically actuated control valves. Included in the kit you will find: a 5800E packing set, pre-engineered live-load assemblies, new gland studs and nuts and a pre-cut carbon spacer.
