Varicor® on railsFor more than 30 years, the solid surface material Varicor® is a synonym for high-quality customised solutions in the railway sector as well as in many other fields of business.
Several leading companies decided for Varicor® for their own developments.
Varicor® is, amongst other particular characteristics, resistant against moisture, heat or fire, e. g. according to DIN EN 45545, DIN 54837/5510, part 2, NF F 16-102, BS476: Part 7, BS 6853, ISO 9239-1, to name just a few certifications that Varicor® can show.
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.
Beyond, one of the world‘s leading companies for antimicrobial protection has proved in a study that according to the norm JIS-Z (ISO 22196), Varicor® shows anti-bacterial effects with regard to the standard plain white colours off-white, arctic and white-alpine. Therefore: no chance for bacteria!
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.
