For more than 20 years, Sika has been providing rail OEM and sub supplier assembly lines with adhesive and sealant solutions for direct glazing and sealing.
Exterior Component Bonding & Sealing
Rail vehicle manufacturers face complex and varied challenges in the design and assembly of the roof and mask systems for modern rail vehicles. High speeds, harsh environments and aerodynamic structural stresses within the vehicle have to be accommodated when selecting the correct adhesive solution
Interior Component Bonding
Modern rail vehicle interiors need high durability and service life expectancy in order to meet the day-to-day requirements of transporting large numbers of people in comfort and safety. Rail vehicle operators demand high performance and reliability from their rolling stock to reduce down time and remain competitive.
Interior Sealing & Fire Resistant Applications
The finish and integrity of a rail vehicle is crucial to its long-term durability. A robust, watertight seal protects sensitive components such as wiring looms, vital electronic equipment and other systems situated beneath the floor and behind interior panels.
Modern rail vehicles require the use of a number of high performance flooring materials during manufacture to ensure travelling comfort, lower vibration and better sound damping in service. Sika has formulated a range of elastic solutions for floor bonding that enable these and other benefits to be delivered to the customer.
