The use of lighter-weight components is also becoming increasingly important for rail vehicles. In collaboration with a consortium of businesses, universities and research institutions, BMS has developed a solution for diesel engine enclosures. Because the large component is located between the passenger compartment and the track, it is subjected to extraordinary loads. The Baypreg PU spray system protects the engine against stone impact and the environment against potential oil leaks. It also satisfies the flame retardance and fire protection standards for rail vehicles, says BMS.
