The pinnacle of engineered polymer sheet development for the railway industry.
Our epsotech range provides solutions that are safe, attractive and tough – with a significant weight saving benefit and lower cost than traditional materials and methods.
epsotech offers a range of solutions for modern passenger carriages in Polypropylene and Polycarbonate based solutions.
Our Polypropylene-based material solution is available as extruded sheets or injection moulding compound. These products are halogen-free and also have exceptional low heat release, smoke density and toxicity properties.
They are easy to process, have excellent rigidity and a matt surface aspect. These Polypropylene-based material solution products also have excellent chemical resistance, making them an excellent choice in seat and table tray applications where parts need very frequent cleaning. Sheets are compliant to EN 45545-2 R6 HL3 and compound for injection moulding up to R6 HL2, or to R21 HL3 on request.
We also offer a halogen-free polycarbonate based material solution, with excellent impact properties, available in a range of colours and textures. Suitable for wall, window frame and ceiling applications, this product has been certified according to EN 45545-2 R1 HL2.
Both materials are the result of ongoing product innovation by our R&D departments in Germany and France.
For the maintenance of old rolling stock in the EU and for non-EU projects, we also produce a range of PC/ABS materials that meet the legacy requirements of German DIN 5510-2 and French NF 16101/16102 on fire and smoke certification for most applications, such as seating, window surrounds, cladding and overhead components.
