BALLASTLESS TURNOUT TRACK WITH ELASTOMER

To develop maintenance-free turnouts, a study of fastening systems and materials was undertaken. With polyurethane elastomer vulcanized at room temperature, turnouts without ballast can be easily and firmly secured on a concrete base without embedding of ties. Such a track structure and the newly developed elastomeric packing methods have been utilized also for another track installation.
