Item No: SPC-TM58
TrackMat prevents ballast contamination common to many railyards. It is a durable mat, that can withstand the elements, providing long term protection against fuels, greases and other hydrocarbons.
The concern with oil impregnanted ballast is that it is inherently difficult to clean, and in fact often it has be removed - which is a costly and lengthy excercise. The sleepers too carry a secondary pollution risk, as once contaminated, they continue to pollute as rain water draws the spill out of the wood or concrete.
TrackMat has a unique 3-ply construction which includes an oil only polypropylene core, surrounded by a non-slip impenetrable barrier film that prevents sorbed liquids from leaching out, and a tough, UV resistant top layer for maximum strength and durability.
Installation for wooden sleepers is through the use of nails, where as concrete sleepers require an industrial adhesive.
Whilst TrackMat is designed for use between and outside railroad tracks, it's not just for railroads anymore. TrackMat is now used at outdoor refueling bays to reduce the slip hazard, in fact TrackMat useful wherever UV resistant, durable and oil only sorbent are required. Still known as the most absorbent barrier mat available, it is now widely used by transportation companies, utilities, refineries, steel mills and other environments in which a high absorbency barrier is required. It is quickly becoming the barrier of choice for indoor and outdoor locations where high absorbency and retention of petroleum based fluids are a must.
