Pilotpack 5020


PILOTPACK 5020 Packing is manufactured from high strength, high modulus meta-aramid yarn. The yarn is produced by a special process that ensures that every single filament is covered by PTFE and a special lubricant. PILOTPACK 5020 gives excellent operating life over a wide range of applications, especially in abrasive media giving long life on rotating equipment and valves operating on slurries and abrasive media, typically in paper and pulp, sewage, cement, power generation industries as well the food and drink industry.


  • Designed to operate on high-speed rotary applications, high-pressure valve and static applications.
  • Superb wear resistance even in arduous and abrasive media.
  • Excellent extrusion resistance even at high speeds and pressures.
  • Minimal shaft wear due to polishing effect.
  • High-temperature resistance combined with good dimensional stability.

Water Regulations Approval Scheme

The material included in our packing is suitable for contact with wholesome water for domestic purposes having met the requirements of BS6920-1:2000 and/or 2014.
