Performance and Safety Issues Regarding the Use of ... - CiteSeerXSeveral thousands of plastic composite ties have been installed in track, ranging from mass transit to. Class 1 revenue service applications. While these products have some performance attributes that make them attractive alternatives to wood, they also have some properties that are somewhat different than traditional wood materials and are not fully understood. Performance and safety issues arising from these properties include: fracture, low tie-ballast interaction, spike-holding.

They've Been Working on the Railroad : Plastics TechnologyFor a decade, processors have pursued the vision of a bonanza in HDPE composite railroad ties. They dream about the annual replacement volume for wooden ties: In the U.S. alone, that amounts to 15 million ties, worth roughly $500 million. Marine pilings and bridge cladding use similar high-strength composites and have a comparably bullish outlook. The Army, Navy, and Coast Guard each have annual multi-million-dollar budgets to replace creo sote-treated wood pilings, and&nbsp;...

What are the Benefits of Composite Railroad TiesAtlas ties are made from tons of landfill-bound plastics. We intercept these plastics, which are non-biodegradable and recycle them into useful, echo friendly products. This process not only removes tons of plastic from landfills, but it also reduces the amount of new plastic being produced. Performance in Wet and Humid Climates In wet or humid situations, wooden railroad ties are at their worst, but Atlas composite ties really shine. wood is natural and biodegradable, exposure to water&nbsp;...

Composite Rail Tie - Industrial WoodOur rail ties patented technology mixes recycled landfill-bound plastic to create composite rail ties that far exceed industry standard wooded and concrete ties, because of our high consistency and structural integrity. The components of our composite rail ties formulation includes cross-linked polyethylene, an extremely tough plastic. The plastic mixture is then fed into the patented equipment for processing and delivered into molds. Once removed from the mold, we inspect, measure,&nbsp;...
