05 Apr 2018

MacLellan Rubber's Neoprene material complies with the new European fire safety standard BS EN45545-2:2013. The update to the Rail industry's fire safety standard will replace BS6853, DIN 5510, NF F 16-101, NF 16-102 and UNI CEI 11170.1.3.


MacLellan Rubber is renowned for manufacturing and supplying materials that adhere to stringent quality, health & safety and fire safety standards across a range of industry sectors, including the Rail sector.

Fire resistant, low smoke Neoprene

The new BS EN45545 fire safety standard specifies the requirements for fire behaviour of materials and components that are used in trains. In the event of a fire, the materials and components should limit fire development and produce low levels of smoke and toxic fumes. Materials should also comply with stringent test methods that assess performance and meet the required standards.

MacLellan Rubber's fire resistant, low smoke toxicity Neoprene complies with the new standard and is independently certified. It is available made to order with short lead-times in a range of thicknesses from 0.5mm to 30mm in standard 300mm wide roll format which makes it ideal for converting into gaskets, sealing strip, buffer and anti-vibration pads.
