Industries we serve
Over a number of years, CB Frost have grown to be a market leader in the supply of cellular silicone insulation materials for the rail and modern engineering industries. Our impressive catalogue of specialist rail insulations is paired with our extensive knowledge and experience of gasketing, fabrication and other manufacturing processes.
Our catalogue of cellular silicone insulation materials for the rail industry complies with rail industry standards including BS6853:1999, EN45545-2, NFF-16-101 and the LUL (London Underground) safety standards, you can be confident that all roll stock and converted materials conform to industry legal regulations.
All rail sector materials are available as roll stock, or can be cut into gaskets, washers and strips (tape). We can also manufacture fabrications and bonded gaskets by joining different materials together to suit specific applications. We have recently invested in a new high-speed die cutting and kiss-cutting press, allowing us to increase our manufacturing capabilities, whilst maintaining pin-point accuracy.
Ahead of our competition
In 2018, EN45545-2, the European Standard for fire safety for the rail industry became mandatory across Europe, replacing the old national standards to provide improved safety assurances throughout the continent. At CB Frost, we were ahead of the curve and all of our rail materials were EN45545-2 compliant before this standard became mandatory. C.B. Frost pides itself on working with our suppliers and partners, and always aim to be ahead of all industry changes.
As specialists in insulation materials and solutions for the rail and mass transit industry, we understand the challenges faced. Just two examples of CB Frost innovations are our introduction of a new EN45545-2 compliant lightweight rail material, CBF SIL-V0, and our metal reinforced silicone profiles.
CBF SIL-V0 is a versatile, lightweight, closed-cell material, which is highly versatile and adaptable for a number of applications within the rail sector, including light seals, HVAC seals, electrical enclosure seals, gap fillers, LCD displays, and anti-vibration.
