railway insulator

Railway insulator is installed between steel rail and the railroad tie plate to adjust rail gauge and electrically insulating rail clips and track bolts from the interior of a concrete tie or sleeper. It is an indispensable fastener especially for the high speed or heavy load train. The functions of railroad insulators are just the same as that of rail pads. Our railroad insulators are easy to handle, quick and simple to install and give greater strength and increased safety to the railway network. They can be easily adjusted in use, without the need to unbolt them or use multiple pads.

railway insulators

Our railway insulator is made of reinforced Nylon 66 (PA66) and its color is natural available in black, blue, and yellow, green, red or others as per the requirements of clients.

Our railroad insulators can be used in steel rails like 60kg UIC rail, 136RE rail, 90R, 75R, 50R and 60R etc.

Packaging: Double-layer woven bag and free fumigation wooden pallet or according to clients' requirements.
