Merkel RAMIFLEX is braided pump packing made from a very stable, flexible and tear resistant ramie yarn DIAPLEX and impregnated with a bright red special grease. Ramie is much more tear-resistant than cotton and rot-resistant.

The packing has very good running properties and is extremely wear-resistant in abrasive media such as mud, crystallised suspensions and sewage.

Ramiflex is thus particularly suitable for application in shipping (stern tube and bilge pump sealing).

Product advantages: 

  • Very wear-resistant.
  • Long service life and better sealing behavior.
  • Protects the shaft.


Rotary and plunger pumps.


Cold and warm water, air, etc.
