The 3R 771 is a firm packing made of braided inconel reinforced fibers on a soft core. It is impregnated with a high temperature resistant compound and is coated with fine particles of graphite to act as a surface lubricant. It is also treated with a solution that contributes to alleviating electrolytic action.


It can handle steam, most chemicals, mild acids, and alkali. It is excellent for use in steam turbines, high temperature motor-actuated slide valves and in high pressure/high temperature valving in general.
