ENERGY-EFFICIENT LIGHTWEIGHT SOLUTIONS
FOR THE RAIL INDUSTRY
Improving energy efficiency is a key challenge for today’s railway industry. Armacell’s flexible equipment insulation and sustainable foam cores for lightweight constructions can help to increase energy efficiency and passenger safety and comfort. Our solutions are used in rail vehicles all over the world, where they ensure safe and smooth operation. Get on track to a greener tomorrow.
«Our technologies can help to make trains lighter, more efficient and more comfortable for passengers.»
The energy required for heating and air conditioning passenger rail vehicles can account for 30 to 40 percent of the total energy use. With Armacell’s thermal insulation: ArmaFlex® Rail, ArmaGel® Rail, rail operators can reduce costs and meet the growing demand for increased energy efficiency and an enhanced weight to-performance ratio.
Optimising acoustic comfort is one of the most important factors in improving the overall customer experience and making railways more competitive with other transportation modes. Our ArmaComfortTM Rail products provide superior acoustic transmission reduction.
The lighter the train, the more energy efficient and cost effective its operation. Their unique material and processing properties make our ArmaPET® materials the ideal core solution for structural and interior elements in trains. Based on 100 percent recycled material and completely recyclable after their service life, our ArmaPET solutions contribute to a more sustainable and safe operation.
