VARICOR® on railsFor more than 30 years, the solid surface material VARICOR® is a synonym for high-quality solutions in the railway sector as well as in many other fields of business.
Several leading companies decided for VARICOR® for their own developments.
The homogeneous and pore-free surface of VARICOR® is resistant to moisture, disinfectants as well as to common chemicals.
With regard to the fire protection properties important in railway traffic VARICOR® fulfils the requirements of the standard DIN EN 45545 HL2 for R1 in all standard colours. Special adaptations of the recipe also allow the use in areas where there is a demand for HL3 for R1.
Appropriate proof has also been provided for various country-specific standards (e.g. DIN 54837/5510, NF F 16-102, BS476/ 6853).
Due to the factory’s own tool building department nearly any three-dimensional shapes are possible. Low costs for tools and moulded pieces casted in one are an economic alternative compared to handmade solutions.
As flexible we are in the implementation of individual color developments, e.g. RAL®/NCS®.
Another main advantage focussed on hygienic aspects and cleaning time and effort: no gluing joint on the casted unit and therefore no groove where dirt can stay. And due to the non-porous and homogeneous consistence VARICOR® can be cleaned with common means, even in case of persistent stains.
In addition, the standard uni-white shades Arctic and White Alpine ensure the greatest possible hygiene due to their antibacterial effect (ISO 22196).
Partial damages on the VARICOR® surface can be repaired virtually invisible - a possibility that supports the sustained efforts to find applications for economical solutions.
And finally good to know: Moulded pieces made of VARICOR® are CE certified and labelled accordingly.
