SOLUTlONS railway
Composites won't
be left standing on
the platform
The transport sector, and specifically railway,
hold significant promise for composite
material applications. Indeed, their
characteristics and properties make them a
choice material:
- For passenger transport and shipping
goods, they offer great design freedom
for the public-facing elements. Featured
in areas as varied as the hatch, doors, rising
sides and rolling wearing parts, composite
materials also play an important
role in passenger safety as a result of their
properties--fire resistance, low smoke
emission when in contact with critical
heat, and high electrical isolation;
- When used in infrastructure, composite
materials contribute to reducing friction,
vibration and wear in ground equipment
like ballasts and sleepers. Equipment created
offers substantial resistance to the
outside elements, thanks to anti-corrosion
properties facilitating maintenance
and life span;
- Reservoirs produced using filament
winding are designed to hold hydrogen
and make the energy transition ever
more tangible. Composite materials are
employed to enable decarbonisation in
this industry, which has remained particularly
energy-greedy. Passenger trains
for regional lines in Europe are being
rolled out progressively and tests on very
high-speed trains are currently under
study.
As key players in mobility, composite materials
have demonstrated their versatility
for several decades now within the railway
transportation sector. As the tendencies to
encourage public transportation use and
increase civil society's awareness of concerns
regarding the green transition become
more pressing, composite materials
have an important role to play in the transportation
offering.

Absorbing impact
Railroad stiffness is what determines
its load capacity and the dynamics of
the vehicles that can travel on it. This
is also a decisive factor in design selection,
just as it is in the building and
maintenance process. Amorim Cork
Composites specialises in developing
cork-based composite materials. They
offer solutions that make it possible to
reduce the impact pressure that slabs
and ballast tracks must sustain. By helping
to reduce the impact pressure born by sleepers, they also contribute to
the electrical isolation of railway components, limiting corrosion between
tracks, base plates and sleepers, as well as the noise disturbance generated
by vibrations.

A wealth of
versatile uses
From the hatch of a
train and passenger
area furnishings, to
doors, trucks and outer
rising sides, the composite
materials developed
by Gurit off er a
wealth of versatile uses.
SPRINT™ is a prepreg
material whose reinforcement
stays dry
and is applied either
on 1 side or both sides
of a pre-cast resin fi lm.
Reinforcement fi bres therefore stay dry and are not impregnated
with resin. Th e SPRINT™ product line surpasses criteria for quality
pertaining to heat transfer, fl ame retardancy and smoke generation
when exposed to fl ames, and signifi cantly reduces the weight
of fi nished goods. When compared with a hatch produced using
traditional composites, the panels manufactured with this material
reduce the weight of the hatch by 60%. Easy to laminate, it also reduces
the amount of waste from production.
