Molded & Rigid Friction Products

Molded & Rigid Friction Products

Kor-Pak offers a diverse array of molded and rigid friction products which are successfully used in numerous applications.  We offer custom fabricated parts as well as molding high volume products to achieve economies of scale.  Kor-Pak offers Molded Flat Sheet Products available in sizes and thickness for user fabrication into any desired shape. Quick turnaround of production assures availability in either 20″x 20″ or 30″x 30″ flat sheets in wide range of available friction levels. Material can either be machined or fabricated by water-jet cutting to desired shape.

Rigid Molded Blocks (RF Material)rigid-molded1

Non-asbestos rigid molded blocks are the premium product line for use on heavy duty industrial brakes and shoe type clutches.  RF materials exhibit smooth consistent friction with excellent properties.

  • Wide range of friction levels
  • Low wear and abrasion
  • Excellent fade resistance
  • Smooth, consistent friction
  • Heavy duty industrial brakes & shoe clutch applications
  • Drilled or undrilled

Examples of use: overhead cranes, crane, shovel & draglines, industrial lift trucks, hoists & winches, tension control devices, mining equipment, logging equipment and haul trucks

Geartooth Facings, Insulator Plates & Molded Cathead Facings

Kor-Pak manufactures a wide variety of industry standard gear-tooth facings used in power transmission applications such as PTOs and industrial clutches, both disc type and constrictor. They are available in mid-co and hi-co materials as well as specialty materials developed for water-cooled applications and a hi-strength “Kevlar” material.

Kor-Pak offers a variety of facings to meet the most severe oilfield and industrial applications. Both ID and OD geartooth facings are produced in either RF38 standard duty medium friction material and in RF52 high strength high torque material, but upon request can be molded in most Kor-Pak materials. The clutch insulator plates are molded from a specially developed non-metallic formulation which exhibits excellent insulating properties while presenting a smooth tough surface in your critical clutch applications. Cathead facings are available in standard manufacturer configurations , in either an RF formulation or GGW woven material and can be readily cross-referenced by a Kor-Pak technical representative.

  • Available for most industrial applications
  • Both ID and OD geartooth facings available in most sizes and thicknesses
  • Most formulations can be molded to special internal or external configurations
  • Examples of use: construction or mining machinery clutches, pumping & irrigation drives, punch press brakes & clutches, overload and tensioning devices, winches & hoists, other industrial clutch & brake applications

Value Added

Perhaps Kor-Pak’s most distinct value proposition lies in its adept ability to design and manufacture custom value-added Molded & Rigid Friction Materials Products.  For example, Kor-Pak has successfully produced Brake Pads for passenger rail cars, Brake Band Assemblies for agricultural equipment, and Clutch Facings for the Oil Industry.  Kor-Pak’s experience and selection, combined with laser cutting and machining/fabrication capabilities allow for the ability to produce high-quality custom products to suit a unique application while concurrently offering competitive pricing and quick turnaround.
