Rail Clip

Rail clips require fatigue-resistant spring steel with consistent properties to meet our customers’ stringent and safety-critical requirements.

Our wire rod for rail clip applications addresses the industry’s needs for strength, formability, ductility and fatigue resistance.

Our spring grades have a uniform microstructure to facilitate efficient downstream processing, combined with dimensional accuracy and excellent surface quality, ensuring reliable long life in track.

It's supplied with a fine lamellar pearlite structure for optimum wire drawing and can also be supplied with an annealed structure for enhanced formability.

Visit our Wire Processing Centre page to find out more about our processing capability.
