It is widely recognized within the track maintenance industry and by asset owners that there will be more rail replacement issues, excessive rail wear and permanent way deterioration in installations where the asphalt and road base construction contacts the rail.
Asphalt and road base being adjacent and against the rail provides a constant supply of fluid and abrasive material that is turned into a grinding paste with wear exasperated by the constant rail movement generated by train, vehicle and thermal sources.
RX Rubber Level Crossing Inserts ensure that material like asphalt and coarse gravel are kept away from the flange way as far as is practical and provides good drainage.
