The synthetic sleeper is composed of continuous glass fiber reinforced polyurethane foam material. It has the characteristics of glass fiber reinforced plastic composite material and foam material. It has the advantages of natural wood and plastic. For example, it has higher strength, higher specific modulus and can be used as structural material. It is light in weight, heat-insulating, chemical-resistant, insulating, and resistant to aging. It has similar wood properties, such as nailing and riveting. It is mainly used in high-speed railways and subways (such as ballasts, Bridge tops, platforms, etc.) ,especially where the use of concrete sleepers is limited.

6) Impregnation Facility
7) Adhesive equipment
8) Surface coating equipment
9) Inspection equipment
The synthetic sleeper is made of long glass fiber as the reinforcing material, with polyurethane resin as base material to be foamed, solidified and synthesized. At the beginning, two kinds of liquid polyurethane raw materials of A and B are sent to mix by the metering pump in certain ratio at the head facility, then uniformly poured onto the glass fiber surface, and after being evenly kneaded, it is then foamed, solidified and formed into a rolling mold, and finally the synthetic product is automatically tracked and cut at the production line. The semi-finished product is cut into a certain length as needed, and then grinded, compounded, coated or sprayed to become a finished product.
