Rail Pad FC9

A high quality solid elastomeric bonded cork rail pad, FC9 is designed with excellent strength and abrasion resistance, coupled with high resilience.

FC9 is used as a rail seat pad for fitting between the rail and steel or concrete sleepers. It is recommended for use with axle loads up to 18 tonnes, but may be specified for main line axle loads up to 25 tonnes, depending on the track conditions.
