Railways: The Fire Resistant Silicones Experience

​Make Silicone Elastomer Solutions your next station…

Since April 2013, our customers have had to face new and complex regulations being applied throughout Europe for railways, such as the EN45 545 fire resistance standard for rubber, silicone sealants and flexible materials.

They now need to take the fast track to implement various new testing methods for approval. They also need to adjust their processes and the selection of products they use to comply with this new standard. Beyond that, national standards still apply and will have to evolve to be harmonized with this pan-European standard.
