CB Frost at the Rail Industry Technology Roadshow

The Rail Industry Technology Roadshow is currently underway, taking in major sites across the UK, including Siemens, Alstom, Network Rail, Bombardier Rail, Hitachi and CAF. As part of CB Frost’s on-going development, we have taken it upon ourselves to showcase our material range and capabilities, literally taking them on the road as part of this unique travelling exhibition for rail industry technology and materials.

Rail Industry Technology Roadshow

As a result of our commitment to fire safety and protection, we are proud to work in partnership with Armacell to supply the Armaflex® range of materials including Rail SD, SD-C, ZH and ZH-C insulation foams.

Armaflex® Rail SD is a high-tech and innovative closed-cell thermal insulation material, designed specifically for use in the rail industry. The closed-cell structure of this elastomeric foam-based material allows for improved fire-retardant properties and low smoke generation, to meet hazard level 2 according to EN45545.In the event of a fire, it is self-extinguishing, does not drip and does not spread flames.

In addition to its excellent fire protection properties, Armaflex® is also a highly effective material for applications such as insulation and protection for air conditioning, and refrigeration air ducts and pipes, including fittings, elbows and flanges. The closed-cell structure of the material, combined with Microban® antimicrobial product protection provides an effective barrier to water vapour, reducing the risk of corrosion, mould and mildew, to improve indoor air quality.

Throughout the roadshow, members of the Armacell team will be working alongside us to exhibit their Armaflex® range of Rail compliant materials to potential customers.

Rail Industry Technology Roadshow

The first stop of the 2019 Rail Industry Technology Roadshow was Alstom’s site in Widnes, Cheshire. There was a great presence from the staff, including engineers, production team, purchasing, and senior management.

The second stop was the Hitachi site in Newton Aycliffe, County Durham.


There were over 150 visitors to the roadshow, with potential customers arriving up until the last moment.
