Last week Tufcot attended a rail specific sector showcase at Manchester University duly hosted by Composites UK and The Rail Alliance. Tufcot had a table top stand where delegates could chat, take samples and discuss the case studies brought up throughout the day.

“We found the event extremely useful. As Tufcot can be used for countless applications, it’s often beneficial to spend time focusing on one market sector and to speak to industry experts with Tufcot material in mind.” Greg Majchrzak, Managing Director.

There were numerous presentations throughout the day discussing key reasons why composites are increasing to be used in the rail sector. This highlighted areas where the use of Tufcot would be a perfect alternative; weight saving, maintenance free and longer life spans than conventional materials.

If you have any questions about Tufcot in rail (or any other application) don’t hesitate to get in touch at Tufcot looks forward to attending the next industry specific event.
