RWIP120 is a highly versatile and robust epoxy coating system. It has particular benefits for the rail industry. The development of our range of protective coatings for the rail industry has centred on the introduction of RWIP120. We have over four decades of experience of coating technology in many of the most challenging global environments. As a result, we have a range of coatings that brings many benefits to the rail industry.
RWIP120, which is fully compliant with CR/PE0102 Repainting of Rail Vehicles specification, offers a range of performance benefits and, significantly, is available as either a one or two coat system.
Undercarriage coating objectives can often be achieved by the use of the system as a single 120 micron primer/finish coating, particularly as there are no specific aesthetic considerations while, in other areas, it can comprise a separate 60 micron primer with an additional 60 micron finish coat. Where appropriate, it can also then be over-coated with other Indestructible Paint finishes, epoxies and polyurethanes. While customer needs can be further met by a choice of colours in a matt, semi-matt, semi-gloss or gloss finish.
This high-performance, two pack epoxy primer has been proven on a range of substrates, many of which are a common feature in the rail sector. These include steel, aluminium, galvanised and composite surfaces. All of which gain from the composition of the epoxy and its chemical bonding characteristics. The cured coating is a tough chemically resilient finish. It has been tested against a variety of corporate and national standards.
2 Pack Epoxy Benefits
The system is part of a family of coatings that we have developed at Indestructible Paint which are based on high grade, two-part epoxy coatings that have a long and successful track record in the aerospace sector. In the rail industry, typical uses can include underframe equipment. As well as, as a primer, a range of applications from GRP end mouldings, aluminium frames and roof coatings to wheel sets, bogies and brakes.
The performance capability of the RWIP120 range covers a long list of challenges faced by rail operators. Including impact, chip and scratch resistance. Alongside the ability to withstand high humidity environments. Additionally, proven resistance to abrasion, salt spray and wash plant operations.
We have a long and successful background in demanding application areas, such as aerospace and the offshore sector. This has provided a firm basis for us to focus specifically on the needs of the rail sector. The introduction now of the RWIP120 coating is evidence of the suitability of our product range in this context and is clearly bringing key opportunities and advantages to a growing number of customers in the rail industry.
