Railcar Door Inflatable Seals
Seals in railcars must be able to withstand a demanding environment to ensure passenger safety. Modern passenger railroad cars are manufactured with inflatable seals made with low-smoke silicone and used in conjunction with sliding doors. These seals must resist smoke generation, flame propagation, and toxic fume build-up. Compression seals for windows and hatches have also been designed and manufactured using this new material.
