From Road to Rail

Making high speed safe and comfortable

Due to infrastructure development in countries like China and Russia there is a shift in trend occurring to apply new high speed and extreme temperature technologies. A high speed railway produces less than 50% carbon dioxide per passenger mile compared to automobiles. This transition is turning the quest from Green to SMART (zero emission) technologies, the kind that Freudenberg Sealing Technologies can help bring this rapidly changing industry. In the railway industry, that means helping to meet the demand for extra comfort and safety. By focusing on low and high temperature needs, FNST has developed various materials and products to support this industry.

Extreme Temperature

Increased horsepower requirements in locomotives, result in extremely high temperatures. Severe low temperature climates present operating challenges. Our newly developed materials can handle these extreme temperatures.

Safety and Reliability

Never before has safety and a reliable operating environment been more important to the growth of the railway industry. Freudenberg Sealing Technologies is leading the way with products ranging from fabric reinforced diaphragms to innovative valve components, solutions that cover almost every application imaginable.


In a world where more transportation options are available than ever before, comfort and convenience remain at the top of a list of requirements. Freudenberg Sealing Technologies helps you deliver comfort and convenience through reduced vibration, noise and improvements to climate control, all key to attracting rail passengers.


Due to the budgetary constraints of governmental agencies and private companies, total life cycle cost is critical in railway maintenance. By offering our customers longer component life, we help reduce maintenance costs.
