Rail Seating

Whether for luxury or hard commuter use, rail seating increasingly calls for new shapes to provide comfort and optimum seating density. At the same time, designs must meet a growing array of safety issues, durability and maintenance needs. 

LEXAN™ and ULTEM™ resin, sheet and film continue to help designers create the next generation in sturdy, aesthetically pleasing rail seating, including alternatives to traditional thermoset manufacturing. New forms, thinner profiles, lighter weight – all are important, and SABIC can help provide the formability and strength required. Resistance to heavier loads helps to improve the longevity of seating, helping to reduce operational costs.
