TENMAT-RAILKO helps to improve wear life on DB stand-in deck coach carriers

TENMAT products continue to save Deutsche Bahn money by protecting their rolling stock.

Deutsche Bahn identified that previous competitor thermoplastic pads for Hccrrs 328 stand-in deck coach carrier wagons suffer undesired wear after only 2 years. Deutsche Bahn reacted responsibly to solve the problem and asked TENMAT to develop an improved solution.

RAILKO NF21 thermoset composite material – the best solution.

RAILKO NF21 thermoset composite was chosen due to its long life, low friction, and superior impact resistance during opening and closing the wagon roof. RAILKO NF21 sliding pads were installed onto Hccrrs 328 wagons and tested directly against thermoplastic pads. After 24 months of extensive use RAILKO NF21 sliding pads exhibited minimal wear.

TENMAT Products Save Deutsche Bahn Money

RAILKO sliding pads provide excellent durability and protection.

RAILKO sliding pads are used to protect the highly expensive aluminium covering system on the Hccrrs 328 wagon. It is important to have a material which provides excellent dimensional stability and protects the wagon while opening and closing. The reinforced matrix structure of RAILKO NF21 withstands even the most abrasive of environments.

TENMAT-RAILKO materials – trusted in the rail industry.

TENMAT is approved and specified by all leading railway authorities and private wagon owners.

This includes Deutsche Bahn, SBB, ÖBB, SNCF, RENFE, British Rail, as well as VTG, AAE, Eurotunnel, Ermewa / CTC, Wascosa, CTX Rail, PKP, Eiffage Rail.
