Road, Rail and Maritime Chemical Transportation

The transportation of chemicals requires hard-wearing, durable and chemical resistant rubber components. As manufacturers of custom-made rubber products for the road, rail and chemical transportation industries, our technologists work in close collaboration with customers to develop high-quality technical solutions.

With a number of years of successful innovation to our name, TRP Polymer Solutions is the natural choice for the design and development of road, rail and marine rubber products.

Chemical resistant rubber for the rail industry

Supporting the need for the global distribution of chemicals and fluid transfer from storage tankers into bulk containers and IBCs, TRP Polymer Solutions uses only the most durable chemical resistant rubber materials to ensure safe transportation. By using chemical resistant elastomers, you can be safe in the knowledge that your components are fit for use in all types of weather and with a wide range of chemicals.

The diversity of chemical media involved in transportation requires ancillary equipment that can withstand these severe working demands. Our range of chemical resistant rubber components for these applications include:

•  Discharge valves
• Couplings
• Pump seals
• Man lid and access hatch seals

Chemical resistant rubber for marine transportation

Rubber for rail industry

As a leading producer of Perfluoroelastomers (FFKM) and composite PTFE components, we have a wide range of chemical resistant rubber materials available to ensure your marine rubber products meet your exact requirements. Our technologists manufacture rubber components that are the optimum balance of quality, performance and cost, for both existing and made-to-order products. Read our Maritime Chemical Transportation FAQs.

Our chemical resistant rubber materials are selected with the aim of reducing maintenance costs and equipment downtime by significantly improving the lifespan and performance of your pumps, valves and couplings. We understand how demanding chemical transportation environments can be and how important it is for road, rail and marine rubber products to resist a wide range of chemicals.
