|When it comes to preventing leaks and improving aircraft performance, mechanics have a lot of tricks up their sleeves. One way to stop a leak in a hose or tube is to use a preformed packing. If you're wondering, "What is a preformed packing?", you're in luck. Preformed packings are basically a type of O-ring that has been formed prior to shipping. The packings arrive ready to use and are typically made of a slightly flexible material that can be compressed to create a better seal.
SkyGeek carries a generous selection of preformed packings to choose from, including ones from brands like Aeronautical Standard, Military Specification and more. The packings are made off-site and arrive ready to install to make repairs and installations easier than ever. They are mess-free compared to form-in-place gaskets and are a great addition to any toolbox. SkyGeek offers a variety of preformed packings to choose from in several sizes to suit your needs.
