RAIL-SLEEPER - New impregnating agents for wooden railway sleeper

In this project products with a better toxicological profile than creosote are under examination as alternatives for the impregnation of wooden railway sleepers. The demanded key properties have to be geared to those shown by creosote: high biological efficacy, long service-life, no increase of corrosion, low conductivity of impregnated sleepers and high resistance against physical and chemical stress.
