Scan-Pac Manufacturing

Clutch Engineering is an authorized distributor of Scan-Pac Manufacturing industrial power transmission products. We are proud to feature high-quality friction and wear materials from Scan-Pac. Additionally, our experienced application engineers are equipped to work with you to determine the compatibility that each product will have with your system. Clutch Engineering keeps a readily accessible inventory for many of these asbestos-free products to quickly respond to new product orders. Available products are designed to meet and exceed industrial needs, to deliver impressive results and high degrees of accuracy. These solutions are manufactured to meet key requirements, making them ready for a broad range of industrial applications. For high friction environments and other use cases, these are products are compatible with various critical systems.

Scan-Pac Mfg., Inc. is recognized as the industry leader in the development and manufacturing of many organic friction products (rigid molded, flexible molded, woven) as well as phenolic bearings (Gatke) and laminates. Their strength comes from offering a broad array of formulations that can be molded or machined into any dimensional configuration, as well as comprehensive technical support regarding motion control processes. Having pioneered the development of non-asbestos friction material, they have created hundreds of specialized compounds, variations of which are available as solutions to your specific needs.

Scan-Pac products can be found in industrial clutches and brakes, winches, PTO’s, punch presses, cranes, and anywhere else high-quality friction products are needed. Their wide variety of formulations makes Scan-Pac the full-range source for your friction, bearing and wear applications. Clutch Engineering can provide sheets, rolls, and custom finished shapes to meet the demands of your application. For additional information about these products and their applications, contact our team directly.

Flexible Woven

Scan-Pac’s woven friction materials are flexible and available in a variety of widths and thicknesses. These non-asbestos materials offer a consistent high friction level and good wear rate. Green Gripper Woven (GGW) is a versatile material for heavy-duty industrial applications. Gemini Woven is a more affordable option that doesn’t sacrifice performance.

Coefficients of friction: 0.50 to 0.51
Typical applications: Industrial brakes and clutches, winches, elevators, commercial fishing boats

Flexible Molded

Scan-Pac 230AF and 232AF flexible molded sheeter linings are recommended for light to medium duty clutch and brake applications. Green Gripper Aramid (GGA) has a high aramid content, which allows it to be used for demanding tensioning applications. It contains no metal, giving it low abrasion. GGA is flexible when uncured, and rigid when cured.

Coefficients of friction: 0.27 to 0.48
Typical applications: Industrial clutches and brakes, unwind and rewind stands, tensioning units

Rigid Molded

Scan-Pac offers a wide variety of rigid molded friction materials. Scan-Pac offers flat sheets, molded brake blocks, and custom molded parts. Between the RF and Gemini series, the Rowland Company can help identify a rigid molded material to fit your needs. All Scan-Pac materials are asbestos-free.

Coefficients of friction: 0.11 to 0.63
Typical applications: Industrial brakes, punch presses, PTO’s, overhead cranes


Gatke is a phenolic material from Scan-Pac formulated with high-strength fabrics and long-lasting resins. Gatke bearings are lightweight and offer long wear life. They withstand the most demanding applications and are available in a variety of shapes.

Coefficients of friction: 0.2 to 0.5 Static; 0.1 to 0.3 Dynamic
Typical applications: Steel and aluminum rolling mills, paper and pulp mills, marine winches, railroad and commuter rail


Scan-Pac sintered friction products are designed to operate in applications where high energy dynamic stopping produces extreme heat. Good thermal conductivity is achieved with high concentrations of metallic fibers. Custom shapes, sizes, and formulations are available to best suit your application.

Coefficients of friction: 0.39
Typical applications: Agricultural machinery, construction machinery, aircraft
