Shaping a more versatile and efficient railway landscape


Composite materials find diverse applications in the railway industry, spanning infrastructure, as well as interior and exterior components of rolling stocks. Within infrastructure, the notable benefits include superior corrosion resistance compared to metal, resulting in lower maintenance costs for composite poles and signalling equipment. Additionally, composite sleepers exhibit anextended lifespan and reduced weight compared to concrete, facilitating quicker and easier installation. This weight advantage also contributes to energy savings. In rolling stocks,the significant advantages lie in achieving a 30% weight reduction compared to metal, leading to enhanced energy efficiency. Moreover, the freedom of design afforded by composites allows for the creation of a wide range of interior and exterior components, shaping a more versatile and efficient railway landscape.
