FC105A

This material combines the exceptional resilience of selected high quality cork granules with the toughness and abrasion resistance of a thermoplastic polyester. It is an extremely hard-wearing but versatile material, alongside its excellent attenuation properties makes it useful in a variety of under rail/baseplate applications.

The pad material is designed for maximum axle loads of 25 tonnes and speeds up to 250km/hour. It is suitable for a temperature range of -40ºC to +70ºC.
