Leaders in rail fire safety will gather once again this month at the annual Fire Protection of Rolling Stock (FPRS) conference and exhibition.
Hosted in the German capital Berlin on the 25th and 26th Feb, FPRS gathers global train operators and manufacturers along with leading component and material suppliers to explore new and improved ways to ensure rail travel remains one of the safest modes of transport.
Silicone Engineering will again be exhibiting the V-0 range of silicone sponge, specially formulated to improve fire and smoke safety to international standards such as EN45545-2 and NFPA 130. kSil®V-0 is a closed cell, lightweight silicone sponge that has been specially formulated for mass transit interior applications including: door seals, electronic enclosure seals, HVAC gaskets, vibration dampening, LED gaskets, and gap fillers.
Marketing Manager, Simon Holmes said “We are extremely excited about this year’s FPRS where we will be promoting our V-0 range. We formulated and developed the range with the aim to provide a high performance silicone sponge for sealing, insulation and protection whilst at the same time ensuring V-0 passes critical fire and smoke safety standards such as EN45545-2, NFPA 130 and Bombardier SMP 800c. FPRS is a great conference that gives us the opportunity to network with industry leaders as well as discussing ways to continually improve fire safety.”
