CONCRETE TIE FASTENER MANUFACTURER PROVIDES INTERNATIONAL OVERVIEW

While Portec is U.S.-based, it is looking to Australasia as a market for its new direct fixation system, the Sidewinder, which has been designed for concrete cross ties but may also be used with wood. First cost of concrete ties is the same as that of wooden ties in Australia; North American prospects look promising. Research leading to the combination of tie pads and rail fasteners is discussed.
