Rail

Self-extinguishing and low-toxicity silicone and silicone sponge components and compounds.

The rail sector’s growing demand for safer, more efficient and less toxic materials has resulted in a significant increase in the use of silicone to manufacture several components.

This sector requires silicones that are highly resistant to vibration, high and low temperatures and a wide range of chemical agents, and there is a particular interest in self-extinguishing silicones with low toxicity and low smoke emission (without halogens).

Sample applications:

  • Watertight seals for doors and windows, ducts, cables etc.
  • Profiles and tubes used in construction and manufacturing of components. Insulation of high-voltage conductors.
