Now, British Steel has released the first ultra-long corrosion-protected rail in a single 108m piece or 216m welded strings.

Long-length Zinoco has the same benefits as its shorter counterparts, providing high durability through impact and abrasion resistance, and providing sacrificial cathodic protection to maintain performance even if the coating is damaged.

The long-length rail reduces the number of welds required during installation. As well as resulting in a faster installation process, this also gives the rails greater integrity.

Available on any grade or profile, Zinoco is the only rail corrosion protection system approved by Network Rail for use throughout the British network. It is also suitable for any track environment including third and fourth rail electrified areas as it is stray current tolerant.
