Versylon, the Really TOUGH Stuff from Miller Felpax.

Posted in locomotive parts, rail parts, railway parts on October 10, 2012 by millerfelpax

Temperature Tough.  Load Tough.  Impact Tough.

Versylon is strong, hard and dense. That means components stand up to heavy impact loads. The unique strength and toughness of our special molded nylons result in parts that are both much more resistant to cold flow and creep than UHMW, and tough enough to survive in any railroad environment, hot or cold. AAR approved Versylon parts are currently being used by Railroads, Railcar Manufacturers, Leasing Companies, Utilities and major Chemical Companies. You will save money in service because Versylon reduces wear and cold flow. You will save money upfront when you buy from the manufacturer – Miller Felpax. Versylon is the really tough stuff from Miller-Felpax.
