LRM Industries to mold LFR-thermoplastic composites for America's electric railways

LRM Industries, LLC-a NOVA Chemicals / Envirokare Tech joint venture has been selected by Eastern Rail Corporation to manufacture thermoplastic composite infrastructure components for the America's electric railways. LRM's proprietary, totally automated TPF ThermoPlastic Flowforming™ process will be used to mold long fiber reinforced thermoplastic composite components for a durable replacement of aging or damaged railway structures made of wood, steel or traditional fiberglass. Mold production has been commissioned by Eastern Rail for the first contracted program phase, and LRM will commence with component manufacturing in early 2009. This first program will be safety cover boards and side plates for the third or "hot" rail on electric rail systems. LRM's TPF ThermoPlastic Flowforming™ technology allows for part production with very little trim and waste, and all excess material is recycled back into part production. This environmentally responsible closed-loop process extends to final products produced, which are totally recycleable. The company specializes in producing large, long-fiber-reinforced structural thermoplastic parts for use in a variety of applications using innovative new proprietary technologies while Eastern Rail Corporation is a certified DBE Company serving the nation's railway systems.
