Background

RAILWAY INDUSTRY

Reliable machine components for trains are of the utmost importance to ensure operational safety. Our plastic compounds were developed to withstand high mechanical loads in dirty environments. The breaking strength and high wear resistance of our plastic products ensure a safe and efficient working environment on construction sites. The properties of our plastics are developed in such a way that they minimise component wear.
