JEC Group have brought together the international community of composites leaders and executives in our Composites Circle as an unique networking opportunity to meet with both peers and future partners.
Kraibon, highly innovative elastomers for composite applications, are developed as the basis for use in rail traffic and the aerospace industry.
Mass passenger transport systems require a very high degree of fire safety. With the entry into force of the new standardized European standard for rail vehicles EN45545, the requirements have become substantially more stringent in comparison with DIN5510. With respect to elastomers it is not easy to meet these higher standards. The Gummiwerk Kraiburg has responded to the challenge by developing a Kraibon type that fulfills the requirements of the highest level. DB Systemtechnik Brandenburg tested this Kraibon compound and awarded it the certificate for level R1HL3.Kraibon can be used to manufacture very lightweight and sound-absorbing components and linings. The life of components subject to impact is increased significantly. Especially with a view toward the ongoing heated debate on saving energy, this is an essential step in saving weight and therefore costs and energy.More information:www.kraiburg-rubber-compounds.com
