Railroad Production Capabilities
We focus on products that fit into the wheelhouse of our production capabilities when it comes to rubber, plastic or high-precision tooling. Our state-of-the-art facility in northeast Indiana has knowledge and experience in
- Rubber extrusion
- Rubber molding
- Thermoplastic molding
With the ability to mold or extrude materials such as isoprene, EPDM, nitrile or neoprene, we find that our rubber product solutions for railroad ties have become a unique product line that can save and/or extend the life of railroad infrastructure.
The main function of railroad tie pads are to reduce the fatigue and cracking of the concrete. This is believed to be caused by vibration and impact of passing trains.
Our thermoplastic molding capabilities can cover a diverse set of needs for many different markets. And we have decades of experience in the processes of this type of manufacturing. In particular, we design and fabricate tens of thousands of our Insulguard railroad fasteners for a variety of companies around the country.
The Insulguard fastener product line is an economical and easy to use system offering many benefits such as:
- Superior electrical insulation
- Elimination of stray current
- No galvanic corrosion of fastening system
- Excellent long-term tensile strength
Through years of experience, technology advances and engineering knowledge, Press-Seal Corporation can provide all of your inserts, bolts, adhesives and core drilling machines.
