Type: Heavy Rail
115RE rail has a standard profile according to AREMA (The American Railway Engineering and Maintenance-of-Way Association). Its nominal weight is 56.9kg/m that equivalent to 115 pounds per yard. So, it is also called 115lb rail. As a type of heavy rail, it is mainly used for mining tracks since its high strength. 115RE rail is heat-treated to control the hardness and strength of the steel. This is thanks to the heat treatment controls of the cooling rate and therefore controls the microstructure.
115RE rail has better performances in hardness, strength, wear-resistance, and corrosion resistance than many other railroad tracks. It can improve the service life of iron mine, coal mine, and other heavy haul railway lines. It is favored by domestic and foreign users and has maintained good market sales.
