ARMASEAL® packing ring seals


Thanks to long term partnerships with  the most qualified  world suppliers of raw material, CMD can offer products resisting to most critical, physical and chemical operating environments.

CMD products do not contain harmful substances and are the most environment-friendly of the  market.

CMD expanded graphite products offer perfect sealing and long service both in static and dynamic conditions, even in high flow speeds.

The Armaseal 312/322 is a packing ring seal made of graphite rings of type "cup and cone", and has been designed to meet the demands born by the new regulations on "fugitive emissions".

It is particularly suitable to operate on stems of gate valves, disc valves, ball valves, butterfly valves, of any size and for any application, at different pressures, for high and low temperatures (-196 ° C to max . 650 ° C in an oxidizing environment). This new packing ring, using the different geometry of the rings, allows to operate in the phase of opening and closing with low torque (up to 500 Nm, normally imposed by the specifications). These features allowed Armaseal 312/322 to obtain compliance to API Standard 622, SHELL SPE 77/312 CLASS A and B, ISO 15848, etc

Braided Packing

Compression Packing is a soft, pliant and resilient material that is configured for inserting into an annular space, gland or stuffing box to seal a rotary, reciprocating or static device such as a pump or valve. Compression Packing is also commonly known as packing, braided packing, mechanical packing, pump gland packing, valve stem packing, rope packing.

Cut graphite and PTFE gaskets

We can offer a complete design, material specification and cutting service on all bespoke gaskets, with CAD/CAM machines operating within the company.  The service is fast, efficient and reliable.


Gaskets can be manufactured by using samples or drawings.

Site visits by our technical sales personnel are always encouraged to ensure total understanding of the requirement and accuracy of dimensional and specification details for the particular job.

Thermoplastic / Polimer seals

CMD production includes a wide range of thermoplastic seals with good resistance to various chemicals

The Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE, TEFLON®) range  of packing and gasket products starts from pure PTFE but material properties can be modified to meet specific application needs, by adding selected fillers such as fiberglass, carbon fiber, graphite, molybdenum bisulphide, bronze and ceramic,  that improve PTFE characteristics.

Spiral wound gaskets

To combat the effects of pressure and temperature fluctuations, flexibility and recovery are essential.

CMD spiral wound gasket are the precision-engineered solution for flanged joints, heat exchangers, boiler handholes, manholes, and other high-temperature, high-pressure applications—providing resistance to virtually every known corrosive and toxic element.
