Braided Packing

Braided packing, or compression packing, is specialty rope made from tightly woven and braided strands to create seals and prevent leaking. When the braided packing is compressed, it rapidly expands to form leakproof seals. Potter Associates, Inc., is a proud braided packing supplier for industrial sealing applications. We stock a wide range of packing materials in-house to suit packing applications in a range of environments and industries. Braided packing is offered by the pound, the foot, the inch, and in customized cut sets or cut rings.

At Potter, we create custom solutions catered to your needs. No matter your application, we provide you with the highest quality braided packing for your specifications. Contact us today with any questions and a team member will gladly assist you.

Shapes of Braided Packing

Braided packing is created in various shapes for different sealing needs. A square cross-section is one of the most common shapes of braided packing for its high-speed compression in high-pressure systems. Its relaxed weaving pattern allows it to expand further than other braided packing shapes, creating efficient, long-lasting seals for most applications. In addition to square cross-section compression packing, Potter supplies braided packing in rectangular and round shapes to provide sealing solutions for all sealing requirements.
