Optimising Performance & Meeting Rail Regulations with BETASEAL 1590CT

Table of Contents

Dupont’s BETASEAL 1590CT offers a high-end performance for manufacturing and maintenance teams (OEM’s and TIERS) in the rail sector by complying with rail regulations EN-45545-2.

Reduce costs and save time with Betaseal 1590CT

Betaseal 1590CT is a structural polyurethane adhesive for bonding and sealing windows in industrial vehicles. It has less retention time and a longer working time. All gluing and sealing is done with a single product, which is highly resistant to UV rays; allowing for reliable performance over an extended period of time.

Betaseal 1590CT is a perfect choice for companies in the railway sector looking to optimise their manufacturing, repair, and maintenance processes by reducing costs and increasing efficiency through reduced repair and maintenance needs.

These are some of its main characteristics:

Low temperature application

One of the main characteristics of Betaseal 1590CT is its ability to be applied at different temperatures; meaning that it does not require heat for a quick and efficient application. This is a main reason for such wide uses within the railway industry, regardless of where you are or what season of the year you are.

Efficient application

Its long working time and initial gripping force provide an efficient return to service time of the vehicle, allowing efficient repairs and maintenance tasks to be carried out. This in turn allows teams to reduce their costs and save on repair time, allowing for significant savings in the long term.

Complies with railway regulations EN-45545-2

As previously mentioned, Betaseal 1590CT is an adhesive approved by the EN45545-2 railway standard. This implies that it meets the fire and smoke specifications demanded by the sector.
