Background

RAILWAY INDUSTRY

In rail transport, rail operators must be able to rely on the materials used in trains to ensure safe and reliable processes. For this purpose, we produce high-quality plastics that meet the high demands of rail traffic. In terms of wear resistance, operational safety and durability, our plastics outperform many other materials.
