shaft packing

has any one used Duramax Ultra-X packing ? it is advertised in work boat, national fisherman, etc. supposed to be 5X more thermally conductive than flax. 300% less friction than flax. needs virtually no water for lubrication & virtually eliminates shaft wear. i don't know where to get it retail.
