High-Performance Composites Are Revolutionizing Truck, Transit, and Rail

Structural Thermoset Composites for transportationStructural Thermoset Composites are the clear choice over thermoplastics and metals for Heavy Truck, Rapid Transit, and Railway markets. These high-performance composites provide dimensional stability, superior strength-to-weight ratio, high temperature resistance, and reduced manufacturing cycle time. Other properties of high performance composites that are important to these markets include fire retardance, high impact resistance, parts consolidation, reduced tooling costs, design flexibility, paintable surfaces, dielectric strength, corrosion resistance, and moisture resistance.

Structural Thermoset Composites for railApplications in Transportation markets for which Structural Thermoset Composites are an ideal replacement for metals include heat shields, fuel vapor canister brackets, radiator brackets, body shields, sunroof drainage channels, window casings, leaf springs, headlamp housings, valve covers, air-intake manifolds, rapid transit third rail insulators, and railroad switchgear and window casings. IDI's Structural Thermoset Composites are compliant with rapid transit flame, smoke, and toxicity requirements.
