The UK rail system is the fifth busiest in the world. Such heavy traffic means that materials used on trains need to be extremely robust.

Our formulations make silicone ideal for use either inside or outside carriages. Its low compression set and dimensional stability are in high demand for door seals. Its ability to withstand extreme fluctuations make it great for HVAC seals and gaskets and LED lighting gaskets. It also has a closed cell structure that makes it the material of choice for thermal insulation and vibration/shock dampening.
