Railroad safety depends on sound infrastructure and reliable systems. Element works with railway industry steel manufacturers involved in infrastructure projects to enhance their materials lives and eliminate potential failures of these materials when they are in service. 

Railway infrastructure services include analyzing your rail network infrastructure to ensure they meet the required standards and are fit-for-purpose. 

Rail infrastructure services

Our labs use our full range of ISO 17025 accredited destructive testing, non-destructive testing, and failure analysis services to determine these materials properties, performance, strength, and durability. We can help our customers select and apply the best material for the project, increase their overall quality and reliability to minimize service failures, and reduce costs.
