TieTek Global composite crossties demonstrate better long-term spike hold and superior performance to other tie technologies.
TieTek Global ties are significantly more durable than wood. They are more resistant to plate cutting, improve lateral strength and show minimal variation in rail gage after over 2 billion gross tons of heavy axle traffic. They show the same total track stiffness as wood ties; the total track modulus is the same. They produce less surface vibration than other ties, producing 8db less vibration than wood, and 14db less than concrete.
TieTek Global ties are easy to maintain. They do not require specialized installation or maintenance equipment, and can be completely intermixed with wood ties in operating environments. Using existing equipment and procedures, railroads can quickly and easily upgrade to TieTek Global ties, improving performance and driving down operating costs.
Finally, TieTek Global ties are more economical, safer and easier on the rest of your equipment. They improve the performance and drive down the operating costs of an entire rail system.
