There are many applications in the railroad and public transportation industries where Fabreeka isolation materialsand bearing pads are an ideal solution to reduce impact shock and vibration.

Vibration and noise resulting from wheel rail loads can be easily transmitted through the vehicle journal boxes and springs and into the vehicle body. Fabreeka and SA-47 pads have been used for over 50 years on journal boxes, spring planks, center plates and under bolster springs to reduce wear and fatigue.

Fabreeka and SA-47 bearing pads are also widely used as tie plate pads under rails and crossings and as bridge deck pads on railroad bridges.
