Rail Cushion Assembly
The patented DuraSurf™ Rail Cushion Assembly is a resilient UHMW-PE pad for placement against the lower surface of a railroad rail and an underlying abrasion plate for placement against a railroad tie. The rail pad includes a pair of slots that extend through opposite end sloping edge panels that are adjacent to the lower surface of the rail pad. The abrasion plate is a flat, sheet-like component that has a generally similar shape as that of the rail pad but includes a pair of outwardly extending connection tabs, one at each of a pair of opposite edge surfaces. The connection tabs of the abrasion plate are received in respective slots of the rail pad to provide the DuraSurf™ Rail Cushion Assembly in ready- to-use form and without requiring on-site assembly of the components.

Locomotive & Rail Car Applications
Crown Plastics’ DuraSurf™ line of UHMW polyethylene products are designed to eliminate problems associated with Buzz, Squeak, and Rattle (BSR), and Noise, Vibration and Harshness (NVH). These problems are normally attributed to wind leakage, movement between adjoining panels, and gaps and holes in panels. DuraSurf™ BSR thin tapes and thicker gauge DuraSurf™ ETA help eliminate wear and noise between dissimilar materials, allows movement in adjoining parts, protect painted surfaces, cover openings in frames and panels, reduce marring and help extend vehicle life and enhance the quality image of the vehicle manufacturer. DuraSurf™ BSR and DuraSurf™ ETA are easily die-cuttable and can fit into existing designs.
