Rail pad, or railway rubber pad, is a material available to decrease the vibration transmitted from the rails to the sleeper or subgrade. It is inserted in between the rail and baseplate or sleeper. Rail pad is introduced to the railway fastening system because of its resilience or viscoelasticity which can be implemented in the intervention of fatigue cracking of sleepers. The dynamic stress from wheel or rail impact from both regular and irregular movements is attenuated. There is added advantage of reducing track maintenance and associated costs. Other track materials such as rail joint, rail clip, rail clamp, gauge rods are available as well.
Railway Rubber Pad Features
- High performance of damping
- Good insulation
- Strong resistant to aging and wear
- Less deformation
- Long service life
- Easy installation

Studded and Grooved Rail Pad
Studded and grooved rail pad can adapt to the increasing traction and axle loads of heavy-haul trains as the rail transit industry fast developing. High resilience is provided by flexural and shear deformation, the elastic recovery rate is fast. What’s more, under the action of vertical dynamic force, the deformation seismic amplitude is large and the dynamic stiffness is low.
Studded rail pad
The studded design together with its natural or synthetic elastomer material leads to high resilience and abrasion resistance. They can also provide excellent impact attenuation, noise suppression, extended track and ballast life. Because they can adapt to higher speeds and improve passenger comfort, studded rail pads become a very common choice across the world.
Grooved rail pad
There are grooves on the upper surface of the rubber pad, which can ensure that the bottom of the rail is always in close contact with the rubber pad, reducing the wear of the rubber pad. The middle of the rubber pad is set with a steel sheet to strengthen the lateral stiffness of the rubber pad. The thickness of the steel sheet is very thin, which is easy to roll up for transportation.
