Product description

The high-strength 400 UHC® HSH® rail grade has been very successfully used for years in tracks with extreme loads all over the world (especially in heavy haul transport with axle loads over 30 tons) and has become the standard grade both for curves and for straight track.

Long-term worldwide operational experiences of heavy haul railways as well as joint track tests with customers and also in test centres confirm the excellent characteristics of this rail grade.

The operational performance of this rail grade is characterized by:
  • Highest resistance to wear of all pearlitic rail steels
  • Maximum resistance to formation of corrugation
  • Highest resistance to rolling contact fatigue
In response to customer requests voestalpine has developed around the proven 400 UHC® HSH® a new rail grade familiy which will be rolled out at InnoTrans for the first time.

The benefits resulting from this are:
  • Remarkable reduction of rail maintenance costs due to excellent track performance
  • Significant multiplication of the operational rail service life time compared to other rail grades
  • Lowest life-cycle costs in heavy loaded tracks
