Baseplate Track Pad FC16

Trackelast FC16 is a specially formulated cork elastomer product and is normally manufactured in a range of thicknesses from 3mm to 6mm. FC16 is used primarily for supporting ceramic insulators on third rail and other areas where a high degree of electrical insulation is required. It is also used as a baseplate pad with steel or concrete sleepers.
