SYNTHETIC MATERIALS AND GLUED CONNECTIONS FOR RAILWAY ROLLING STOCK
Fiberglass reinforced resin composites are desirable over metal structural components because of light weight, high elasticity, corrosion resistance, and high acoustic, electric and thermal insulation capacities. Principal applications of synthetic materials for large components are discussed and include: end walls, framework and roof parts for locomotives; sliding doors and roofing for freight cars; vehicle bodies for refrigerator vans; and tanks for tank cars.
