Rapid Transit

Thermoset composites BMC (Bulk Molding Compound) and SMC (Sheet Molding Compound) meet the requirements of the Rapid Transit industry, with regard to low smoke generation and low flammability ratings, making them ideal for rapid transit, suburban commuter, and light rail systems' third rail electrical applications.
These composite materials offer superior electrical insulation and heat resistance, allowing them to withstand prolonged exposure to the elevated temperatures and high voltage common in transit applications.

BMC and SMC thermoset composites for rapid transit are ideal for these applications :

Thermoset materials have Comparative Tracking Index (CTI) values exceeding 600 volts and dielectric strength in excess of 15 kv/mm.
This, along with their excellent thermal properties, makes BMC and SMC an ideal choice for the insulative needs of the Rapid Transit industry.
