Rail Support Products
VIP-Polymers have been supplying track support products to the rail industry for many years.
Manufactured in a variety of natural and synthetic elastomers, VIP-Polymers railpads are designed to withstand the most demanding operating environments. VIP-Polymer railpads offer the following benefits:
- Dramatically Improved
- Impact Attenuation
- Noise Suppression
- Improved Passenger Comfort
- Extended Track Life
- Extended Ballast Life
VIP-Polymers in a joint initiative with a major world producer of rail track fastening systems analysed and developed a resilient pad concept to protect concrete rail sleepers from damage caused by the dynamic forces of passing trains.
The result was the patented studded railpad.
Over 90 Million of these rail pads are now used successfully Worldwide, including, Canada, Australia, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Belgium, France, Georgia, Lithuania, Hong Kong, Japan and Korea.
The combination of studded design and specially formulated rubber compound, gives the patented rail pads a unique high resilience and abrasion resistance.
Their superiority to those manufactured from other materials has been proven by their ability to reduce dynamic forces by up to 65%, which is a crucial consideration for railway systems worldwide as they adopt higher speeds and greater axle loads.
