Pultruded composites on track for growth in the rail sector

As the rail sector looks to new technologies to enable it to answer sustainability, performance and cost challenges, applications for pultruded composites are set to grow, according to a new report from EPTA - European Pultrusion Techology Association. Lightweight, high performance, durable composite materials offer energy efficient solutions with lower environmental impact and reduced through-life costs in rolling stock and rail infrastructure.
