Railway Technology: Plastics For Fire Protection

  • Finding the right plastics for fire protection
  • Fire protection is essential in railway technology. However, blanket demands for materials that meet the highest hazard level in EN 45545 are not very productive. This limits the choice of materials unnecessarily and may not make economic sense. For this reason, the material must be selected individually for each requirement. But which plastics are suitable for which applications?

How To Select Rail Components

  • Today, all materials used in rail vehicles must follow the EN 45545-2 standard in order to achieve the highest level of safety possible in the event of a fire.
  • Railway vehicles are classified in accordance with the fire hazard level associated with their design and operation. The three hazard levels are: HL1, HL2 and HL3 with HL1 being the lowest requirement and HL3 being the highest.
  • The webinar will analyse which product requirements apply (R1-R26)
  • How to determine the fire hazard level (HL1-HL3)
  • Identifying a suitable material that meets the above ratings and the technical requirements for the application.
