A more flexible and compressible variation of normal braided packing is braided packing with soft core. Additionally, it comes in ceramic and glass fibre forms. The glass option is made of a glass rope lagging core and a fully encircling glass yarn overbraid. The ceramic versions are made from a ceramic lagging core with a full coverage ceramic overbraid that is strengthened with either nickel chrome wire or glass yarns.
