Following the rollout, implementation, and updating of European Standard EN 45545-2 : 2020, J-Flex has developed a wide range of elastomeric products & materials that meet the latest requirements of this norm, for Rolling Stock, Trackside Equipment & Construction Products/Building Elements.
As with all our industrial rubber solutions, we have ensured that our products have been fully tested. Not only are they approved to EN 45545-2, which is required for rail refurbishers, we also have further certifications.
Fire resistant, Low Smoke Toxicity EPDM from J-Flex is supplied, tested & fully certified to EN45545-2, and has been approved to the former National Standards BS 6853, DIN5510 & NF F 16-101 + other Major Standards including LUL S1085 Specifications + BS 476 + UL94 V(0) & NFPA 130 ( U.S. National Fire Protection Association). In addition it has been independently tested & certified to EN 13501-1 Fire Classification of construction products & building elements.
EPDM, Silicone, Natural Rubber, Neoprene Sponge & Vamac® Ethylene Acrylic Elastomer materials from J-Flex have been independently tested & certified against some or all of the above norms. These materials all have excellent environmental resistance withstanding ozone, u.v., rain & frost – meaning outdoor applications such as lighting systems and enclosures are kept water and dust-tight. Our materials are also resistant to corrosion, moisture, salt & light fuels.
Naturally, we also provide other sheetings and components where conformance with EN 45545-2 is not essential and can quote you for those also.
• Cable Jacketing • Signal Cable Hose • Cable Ductings
• Seal and Gasket cutting capability
• Custom mouldings of sub-components for Sub-tier customers
• Custom extrusions for door edging seals, window seals and interior edgings
• Advice during the design process
Of course, we also provide other sheetings and components for the Rail industry – where conformance with EN 45545-2 is not essential – and are happy to quote you for those also.
