Rail infrastructure is an vitally important asset. Heavy materials handling using Rail transportation methods are energy efficient and the safest way to move high volume materials across long haul distances.

In order to remain competitive, railway operators must be able to transport more and more people and goods with ever greater speed, reliability and efficiency. This, in turn, increases the performance and specification of the rail vehicles and transport systems.

The finish and integrity of a rail vehicle is crucial to its long-term durability. Sealing products must have the capability to withstand intensive use, whilst at the same time provide safe, reliable operation. For example, increased horsepower requirements in locomotives result in extremely high temperatures. And on the opposite scale, severe low temperature climates present operating challenges. Sealing materials must therefore be able to handle these extreme temperatures.

Our products and services help reduce lead times in supply of various spare parts and seal kits used in repair of rolling stock equipment.
