Improve passenger comfort while reducing vehicle weight
SOLIMIDE® polyimide foam offers a lightweight, non-fibrous insulation solution for rail transportation applications. The fire and moisture resistance, as well as thermal and acoustic insulating properties make it an excellent non-toxic insulation choice for the rail industry. SOLIMIDE® foam is especially useful in areas that see humid conditions, high temperatures or where loose fibers are a concern.
SOLIMIDE® foams and lightweight insulation systems meet multiple worldwide rail specifications, often far exceeding the fire, smoke and toxicity requirements for thermal and acoustic non-toxic insulation used in today’s high speed trains, regional trains, metro systems, streetcars, airport trams and locomotives.
