Scan-Pac Distributor

Scan-Pac Friction Material ManifacturerKor-Pak Corporation has a rich history with Scan-Pac Manufacturing as Kor-Pak founder Jim Koralik helped Scan-Pac founder Skip Scandrett pioneer non-asbestos friction materials into various markets to be used in a plethora of applications.  In the early 1980's, Kor-Pak helped iron and steel plants create non-asbestos Overhead Crane (OHC) linings for DC magnetic shoe brakes, creating molds for rigid organic linings using the flagship RF-38 material which is a mainstay for hoist applications.

Subsequently, Kor-Pak began designing and implementing Scan-Pac friction and phenolic materials for other applications: woven brake blocks for oilfield applications, flexible friction materials used for brake bands for agricultural applications, rigid brake pads for off-highway vehicles, and several others.

Today, Scan-Pac manufactures literally dozens of friction materials with varying friction coefficients and other technical properties and there is rarely, if ever, an application that Scan-Pac friction materials cannot successfully accommodate.  Kor-Pak possesses the value-added capabilities and engineering services required to help you with your friction materials needs.

Gemini Friction Materials
Scan-Pac Mfg. developed the Gemini Brand of friction materials to provide the most cost effective friction materials for industrial and oilfield applications. In the Gemini line, there are four rigid molded formulations with coefficients of friction ranging from .15 to .59 and a woven material to meet the needs of industrial and oilfield applications. The line consists of GL (Gemini Low), GM (Gemini Mid), GMH (Gemini Mid-High) and GH (Gemini High).

Gatke Phenolics and Laminates

The Gatke Corporation was acquired by Scan-Pac several years ago as a strategic acquisition to complement its preexisting product line.  This was a prudent decision as Gatke is a unique and versatile product line that can be used ubiquitously for several industries and applications.

There are several grades of Gatke material available with different material compositions that enable them to be utilized for various applications.  Gatke products can be found in applications such as Rail (Equalizer Seats, Center Plates, and Vertical Liners), Iron and Steel (roll stand bearings), Agriculture (phenolic bushings), Screw Conveyors (hanger bearings), and many more.  Gatke is often an ideal alternative to metal as it has self-lubricating characteristics which make it forgiving and having a longer wear life than its other more abrasive and less environmentally-friendly competitors.  Contact a Kor-Pak representative today to help you find the ideal phenolic/laminate material for your applications.
