Where is silicone used in Trains?

When railway vehicles are designed and constructed, the safety for passengers and staff is the top priority. Safety levels have been increased continually over the years and today all materials used must fulfil the highest fire protection and passenger safety requirements. Silicone Engineering has long manufactured both solid silicone and sponge/foam silicones that are used frequently in the railway industry. Silicone parts are produced in varied formats from sheets, flexible profiles and fabric constructions to moulded parts. In this blog

Silicone Rubber for LED Lighting Systems

LED lighting is already one of the most energy-efficient developed technologies on the market due to the durable and long lasting performance compared to conventional lighting technologies. LED lights have been hailed as the future of interior and exterior lighting as they use very little energy, have an increased lifespan and, unlike regular energy-saving bulbs, they produce an instantly bright light when switched on.

However, although more energy efficient, LED’s generate high heat, meaning thermal management is critical to allow LED
