The growing demand in the railway sector for safer, more efficient and less toxic materials is leading to a significant increase in the usage of silicone to manufacture different components. The requirement is for silicones offering high resistance to vibration, to high and low temperature, to a wide variety of chemical agents, with self-extinguishing, low-toxicity and low fume emission (halogen-free) silicones being particularly valued.
Tightness seals for doors and windows, piping ducts, cables, etc.
Profiles and tubes used in component manufacturing and construction.
Insulation of high-voltage conductors.
