  • RCF Developement
  • Fuel Efficiency
  • Flange Noise
  • Derailment Potential (Wheel Climb)
  • Lateral Forces (indirect)

Top of Rail (TOR) Friction impacts:

  • Lateral Forces
  • Rail/Wheel Wear (TOR, Tread)
  • RCF Development
  • Fuel Efficiency
  • Squeal Noise
  • Flange Noise (indirect)
  • Corrugations
  • Hunting
  • Derailment Potential (L/V rail rollover)

Use friction modifier to get rid of sanding and increase the friction on your Top Of Rail zone (TOR), while at the same time use lubricant on the rail gage in curves or switches zones.
