Eco-friendly paste for reducing noise on rail vehicles occurring in the wheel/rail contact
TRAM-SILENCE is a high-viscosity, grey-black paste based on a native carrier medium. The active component included is a special solid lubricant combination.
TRAM-SILENCE is mainly applied thinly and selectively onto the rail surface in tight curves. This minimises the noise formation between wheel and rail caused by longitudinal or lateral slip, thus drastically reducing or eliminating the dreaded 'curve screeching'.
TRAM-SILENCE is preferably applied manually and extremely economically. In most cases the occasional application to the inside-curve rail surface is sufficient.
The advantage of TRAM-SILENCE when compared with traditional rail lubricants, which sometimes are also recommended for such applications, lies in the fact that TRAM-SILENCE has considerably less effect on the coefficients of friction between wheel and rail. This greatly increases the safety factor with regard to unintentional overdosing.
