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.
