Tank Lid Seals and Gaskets

Our comprehensive range of tank lid packing's has been constantly developed to meet increasingly stringent international regulations that cover the maritime transport of chemical and potentially hazardous cargoes.


Extensions to the range cover the requirements of road and rail transport plus static or mobile tank containers.

We also offer Halo man-lid seal for tank containers, and the simple yet very durable seal for cargo covers and access hatches of seagoing vessels.

Product Description

A resilient elastomeric core spirally wrapped with PTFE tape and surrounded by successive braided jackets of inert polypropylene yarn. Specially reinforced corners are incorporated to build the section to the required packing size.

The braided structure is spirally wrapped with further layers of PTFE tape to provide an impermeable barrier to liquids and gases, and then finally enclosed in a robust, abrasion resistant braid of PTFE yarns.


Typical applications:

Prime features:


  • Gas-tight environmental seal.
  • Protects cargo from sea water ingress.
  • Withstands repeated opening/closing cycles.
  • Unaffected by steam and other tank cleaning systems.
  • Suitable for smooth recesses in stainless steel lips as well as those with rougher surface finishes.
