Railway technology is crucial to public transport and ensuring that the rail network and trains continue to run without issues means they need reliabile, robust and durable components, that fulfil high quality requirements. Requirements such as: the fire protection standards EN 45545 or NFPA 130. Our motion plastics meet these demands of railway technology and are lubrication-free, which minimises maintenance effort and costs.
