Switches & Crossings Pad FC5

Trackelast FC5 is a black, cork modified elastomeric baseplate pad material, available in thicknesses up to 10mm.

FC5 was originally designed to be used with wooden sleepers and is specially formulated to resist attack by timber preservations. It prevents chafing and indenting of wooden sleepers by baseplates and rail chairs. FC5 can also be used in strip form for bridge bearers and continuous rail support on concrete plinths.
