Insulated Rail Joint

Insulated rail joint is a compromise rail joint. Rail joint, commonly known as railway fish plate, it plays a role in connecting two rails. In general, rail joint is made of metal material, but insulated rail joint is a special type that made of insulating material. Specifically, insulated rail joint is made from high strength composite, which has advantages of corrosion resistance, rust prevention, ultraviolet-proof, non-conducting, non-conductive magnet. Compared to common rail joint, insulated rail joint can insulate electric current and thunderbolt. Due to its board application, railway track require insulated rail joint to be applied in more and more section. Rail joint usually works with same standard steel rail. Like steel rail, insulated rail joint can be divided into insulated rail joint for light rail, heavy rail. For light rail, common sizes include 8KG, 9KG, 12KG, 15KG, 18KG, 22KG, 24KG, 30KG. For heavy rail, including 38KG, 43KG, 50KG, 60KG, QU70, QU80, QU100, QU120.Bonded insulated rail joint and Polyurethane insulated rail joint are two typical insulated rail joint on the market.
