NEW PROVIDENCE, N.J.--()--AXION announces the first trials of its ECOTRAX® composite railroad ties in Southeast Asia. Working in conjunction with distribution partners in the region, AXION is supplying its 100%-recycled plastic composite railroad ties for use in mainline mass rapid transit as a direct replacement for timber railroad ties. Cory Burdick, Manager of the division, said that ECOTRAX® ties “are perfect in the region, given the extreme humidity that degrades traditional railroad ties. Our ECOTRAX® ties provide a minimum life of 40 years. With complete resistance to insects and moisture and installation procedures equivalent to wood, ECOTRAX® is the future for railroads in Southeast Asia.” Over the last 12 years, the ECOTRAX® composite railroad tie has undergone rigorous third-party laboratory and in-track testing in the United States, exceeding all standards as set forth by the American Railway Engineering and Maintenance-of-Way Association.
