KELTRACK® top of rail friction modifier
Our high-performance, top of rail friction modifier is the original water-based solution to top of rail issues.
KELTRACK® top of rail friction modifier’s laboratory developed, field-tested formula controls friction without adversely affecting traction and braking.
KELTRACK® friction modifiers possess positive friction properties – where friction levels increase asymptotically as creep increases. This fundamental property of a true friction modifier is responsible for mitigating stick-slip oscillations at the wheel/rail interface, which cause wheel squeal. The inherent intermediate friction levels also reduce the flanging forces, reducing flange noise. Extensive testing has verified that KELTRACK® is also very effective for mitigating the onset of short pitch corrugations.
- Reduced wheel and flange noise
- reduced rail corrugations
- reduced lateral forces
- reduced derailment potential.
