The rail industry requires lightweight structures with good fatigue performance, low overall maintenance, fire resistance, and good acoustic performance, making composites a perfect fit for this industry. User safety is the number one rule in the railway sector. Its standards are really stringent but at the same time, this sector is seeking lighter and more practical solutions. Composites are one of the few materials that can find market share in this rather conservative environment.
