Rail Transportation

Rail Transportation Parts and Components

High speed train with fiberglass componentsFiberglass composites are widely used for rail transportation car components. We produce both interior and exterior parts for new construction and retrofits. Because our capabilities include a  range of materials and processes, we can support specific requirements for fire retardancy, electrical conductivity, cosmetics, aerodynamics, durability and weight. Involvement in other demanding industries – automotive, truck, busses, recreational vehicles - bolsters the value we bring to manufacturers of railcars.
