L.B. Foster Company: Epoxy-Bonded Insulated Rail Joints

L.B. Foster Company

The “D” bar-bonded rail joint uses the company's Temprange epoxy to bond the full contact, high-strength steel joint bars and rails together to freeze them into position and prevent movement. The epoxy adhesive fills all voids. Epoxy-bonded joints stay tight and perform as CWR. Insulated or non-insulated kits are available, the company says. Standard fasteners include structural high-strength bolts and pin bolts. Insulated joint field kits include two insulated bars, epoxy, fasteners and insulating components. Plug assemblies are available in any shipping length.
