Flexible Silicone Solutions for the Rail Industry
Public transport connects people across the world and, with increasing demands in the industry, performance and passenger welfare need to come first. Networks should strive to deliver an efficient service that is consistent and effective at all times.
From underground and light rail systems, to more recent high-speed rail such as France’s TGV and China’s HSR systems, rail is one of the most important and busiest modes of transport, especially in highly populated areas.
With this comes the need for silicone materials that are durable, reliable and deliver exceptional performance, while meeting the health and safety standards needed to withstand intensive use.
Here at Silicone Engineering, we are experts in silicone for rail applications such as sealing, gaskets and acoustic designs and solutions. All of our specialised rail materials have been formulated and tested to meet the highest standards associated with the rail industry, including:
- EN45545-2 (HL3)
- NFPA 130 (ASTM E162, ASTM E662, ASTM C1166)
- Bombardier SMP 800c
- BS 6853 Category 1
- NF F-16-101 Cat F0
