Vesconite is a high-performance engineering plastic that is widely used in the rail industry for various applications, such as locomotives, carriages, tracks, switches, etc. Vesconite can reduce friction, wear, noise, and maintenance costs and increase the safety and comfort of the passengers and operators.

Some of the benefits of using Vesconite in rail are:

  • Vesconite has a low friction coefficient and can reduce energy consumption and heat generation
  • Vesconite has a high wear resistance and can resist abrasion, erosion, and corrosion
  • Vesconite has a good noise and vibration damping and can reduce noise pollution and fatigue
  •  Vesconite has a high dimensional stability and can maintain its shape and size in varying temperatures
  •  Vesconite has a long service life and can reduce maintenance and replacement costs

Some of the applications of Vesconite in rail are:

  • Vesconite bushings and bearings for locomotives and carriages, such as axles, wheels, bogies, couplers, etc.
  •  Vesconite wear plates and liners for tracks and switches, such as rails, ties, clips, points, etc.
  •  Vesconite spacers and washers for electrical and mechanical components, such as motors, generators, switches, etc.



  • Vesconite rail polymers reduce noise and squeal, creating smoother train and wear component movement.
  • Vesconite rail polymers ensure low wear in expensive rail box bearings and shafts, are resistant to oils and fuels and reduce maintenance on rails, wheels, and axle bushes.
  • Vesconite rail polymers avoid the need for regular greasing.


Manganese steel tends towards material fatigue and cracking. Metal center liners have a higher friction coefficient compared to Vesconite rail polymers. The result is greater turning effort and faster wear on rails and wheels. Metal bushings and liners are difficult to remove and fit. This is not the case with Vesconite rail polymers. Metal to metal wear causes costly downtime on rolling stock – an issue often not factored in.
