What is Hydropacking™?

Hydropacking is an extrusion resistant braided packing that provides maximum extrusion resistance with minimal amount of reinforcing yarn.


Four Corner Packing
Conventionally braided, extrusion resistant packings have the reinforcing yarns on all four corners of the braid.


AKII® Hydropacking™
NEBCO AKII® Hydropacking™ reduces these extrusion resistant corners to two. Thus the maximum amount of desired primary yarn is used in any given style of Hydropacking™.

Primary yarn maximizes chemical resistance and heat transfer, minimizes shrinkage. Secondary yarn provides extrusion resistance and reduces distortion of the packing shape.
