Switches & Crossings Pad FC846

FC846 is a high quality bonded cork compound, specially formulated with excellent strength and abrasion resistance. Available in a thickness range from 3 – 10mm typically, for special applications up to 41mm upon request.

Used as a rail seat pad, for use between flat-bottomed rails and malleable iron or steel baseplates. FC846 is particularly suitable for areas of high wear and tear, for example on switches, crossings and tight radius curves.
