EMKA sealing profiles for Rail vehicles made of EPDM fire protection compound

EMKA sealing profiles for Rail vehicles made of EPDM fire protection compound

Product News Thursday, December 21, 2023: EMKA UK Ltd

EMKA are pleased to announce that they are specialists in processing of materials which are certified according to currently valid fire protection standards for rail vehicles – this includes:  DIN EN 45545-2, ASTM E1354, ASTM E662, ASTM C1166, BSS 7239, SMP 800C. which are supplied to railway engineering companies internationally. Conformity with these standards ensured by EMKA forms a secure foundation, for the wide range of applications that sealing profiles are called to fulfil leaving design and installation engineers only to check that the material meets their specific requirements.

To this end, their engineers advise that there are many advantages of profiles made of EPDM fire protection compound including flame retardant properties for more safety, plus significant cost savings compared to silicone seals and the ability to provide readily customised frames and rings with “sealed joints” ready for instant installation.

Standard sections for railway application include spring-cored clip on “P” types “D” types, edge protectors, and channel-fitted sections for all sorts of enclosures, cabinets and access panels where sealing or protection is an important part of their function. In addition, fully custom profiles are frequently developed for individual applications, with individual product geometry according to specific customer requirements. Examples may be seen at Sealing profiles for railway and fire protection.
