I think flax fiber the best.

Now I am impressed! That 'packing' type material you sent a pic of looks like the old days of Oakum here.....from lead and oakum pipe joints. Perhaps you have a different product, hence my comment about oakum being a 'Hairy' product.
Nice to chat with you. I find this interesting. Weather over on your side of the world? Cold? Frozen? Certainly not HOT and DUSTY!

I didn't ask, but perhaps you do weld more than residential and commercial heating piping. Low and High pressure steam?

I am going to talk with you more, I'd love to know what fuels and designs you use there. I know dozens of members will be following this link. You provide another perspective......half a world away. You English is astounding, when most of us have trouble with only one, you excel at many. Are you living in Minsk now? ......or are you in Detroit, just fooling me?

I'm really from Minsk.
In our country for heating system using different types of fuel.
Our systems are very similar. Already, many people use a heating control system polymer or copper pipes.
I love to make it out of steel pipes, and when it is necessary and safe to turn on the polymeric materials.
draw then welds the heating systems myself
Basically, our people are connected to natural gas heating.
If it is not possible, use wood boilers, diesel, waste oil, and if the house is not a big, use brick oven.
Is very rare electric boilers because expensive
Excuse me for my poor English, I now use Google translator.

Еxpansion tank must be in any system. Its volume should be about 10% of the volume heat carrier
