Development of novel steels for railway applications

  • 330V Grooved Rail

  • HPrail

HPRail

A metallurgically engineered steel for improved resistance to wear and rolling contact fatigue. The product is now fully commercialised with rapidly growing deployment within the UK railway network. IPR for this development remains with Tata Steel.

330V Grooved Rail

A novel steel composition (patent pending) for grooved rails with increased resistance to wear while maintaining weld restorability. The product is commercially available and has been installed in many European tramway networks. IPR for this development remains with Tata Steel.

Novel steel for crossings

A wrought steel with high resistance to wear, rolling contact fatigue, and impact (patent pending). Further development in progress.
