Polyurethane ballast binder
Elastotrack®, a railway ballast binder, is a two-component polyurethane (PU) system developed for the reinforcement and stabilization of loose bulk ballast stones on railway tracks.
Elastotrack features a porous structure that allows rainwater and other liquids and solvents to pass through for better drainage. Yet it binds the loose stones together, preventing them from flying and pulverization, which result in savings of maintenance cost.
As an environmentally responsible solution development, Elastotrack contains over 50% renewable raw materials.
