EnduaPlug Tie Plugging Compound

Encore Rail Systems supplies crosstie life extension products to Class 1 Railroads, Shortlines, Transits and Contractors. Our EnduraPlug Tie Plugging Compound is a 2 part, 1:1 mix by volume rigid polyurethane product. This product is supplied in liquid form as two separate components and is dispensed from a pressurized dispensing system that is mixed as it is dispensed. It is designed to fill spike holes and voids in wooden and composite railroad crossties so that they can be re-spiked or re-lagged without damaging the surrounding tie, in accordance with AREMA chapter 30 requirements.

The EnduraPlug high yielding compound is offered in 200ml, 600ml and 1500ml sized cartridges, 5 gallon pails and 250 gallon totes. Material has a one year shelf life when sealed and stored properly.

Encore also offers a variety of equipment to meet your production needs, including ride-on, walk-behind and skid mounted equipment to fit in the back of a high-rail vehicle. Our staff of Field Service Representatives are available to support your crews.
