Trocellen Class Train
TROCELLEN CLASS TRAIN is the certified product line for railway industry. It is realized in close cell, chemically cross-linked polyethylene foam, laminated, from one side, with an aluminium sheet. The product is available in adhesive rolls, thicknesses from 3 to 40 mm.
TROCELLEN CLASS TRAIN is certified R1 HL3, according to the norm EN 45545-2 “Fire protection on railway vehicles. Part 2: Requirements for fire behavior of materials and components”. EN 45545 norms indicate requirements of materials and components to be installed in railway vehicles with the aim of guaranteeing the protection of passengers and staff, in the event of a fire on board. The above mentioned norms introduce the concept of hazard level of a vehicle (HL1, HL2 and HL3, depending on increasing hazard), as a combination of two elements: the operational category (OC) and the design category, that is related to the type of rolling stock.
|OPERATION CATEGORIES (OC)||N
Vehicles forming part of an automatic train having no emergency trained staff on board
Double decked vehicle
Sleeping and couchette vehicles
Vehicles for operation on infrastructure where railway vehicles may be stopped with minimum delay, and where a safe area can always be reached immediately
Vehicles for operation on underground sections, tunnels and/or elevated structures, with side evacuation available and where there are stations that offer a place of safety to passengers, reachable within a short running time
Vehicles for operation on underground sections, tunnels and/or elevated structures, with side evacuation available and where there are stations that offer a place of safety to passengers, reachable within a long running time
Vehicles for operation on underground sections, tunnels and/or elevated structures, without side evacuation available and where there are stations that offer a place of safety to passengers, reachable within a short running time
Depending on the type of product to install and its position within the rail vehicle, the EN 45545-2 norm indicates 26 requirements to be fulfilled: R1 is the specific requirement for insulation materials.
The tests to be performed, the parameters to be evaluated and the values to be met are set for each requirement, according to the corresponding hazard levels (from HL1 to HL3).

TROCELLEN CLASS TRAIN represents the ideal solution for the thermal insulation of railway vehicles.
Characteristics and advantages:
- made of long lasting closed cell polyethylene insulation foam;
- very good reaction to fire;
- classified R1 HL3 according to EN 45545-2, the maximum level
- suitable to be installed in any rolling stock category, even in sleeping and couchette vehicles;
- good thermal conductivity (λ at 0 C°: 0,038 W/mK);
- constant insulation value*;
- closed cells, to inhibit water absorption;
- clean, non toxic, mould and bacteria resistant, odorless;
- flexible enough to follow tight angles and strong enough to withstand rough handling;
- economically convenient.
*TROCELLEN products tested after 23 years of usage has the same insulating value. Test reports available on request.
