UrBC, Yekaterinburg, August 21, 2019. EVRAZ Holding’s West Siberian Metallurgical Plant (ZSMK) can now offer its foreign customers one more export item: the plant mastered the new rail type that meets the Korean standard KS R 9106:2006R.

According to the company’s PR Department, the lightweight 50N rails are meant for subways; the plant is ready to produce these on an industrial scale.

‘EVRAZ ZSMK professionals designed a new, innovative roll-dressing technique and rail straightening/tempering technology for the product. The tests that took place at the plant’s R&D center proved that all of the new rails’ parameters (section shape settings, linearity, surface quality, mechanical properties, hardness, macro- and microstructure, and residual strain parameters) meet the Korean standard KS R 9106:2006R and the technical requirements of EN 13674-1:2011+А1: 2017,’ the company says.

The plant has mastered 26 new rail types since 2015 all in all, including the 54Е1, 50Е6, 49Е1, 49Е5, 54Е4, and 60Е1А1 kinds that meet the EU standards and the 136RE, 115RE, and 90RE kinds that meet the U.S. standard AREMA.
