Properties of R260 Grade Rail (60Kg)
R260 grade rail is also known as “UIC 60 rail” or “60 kg/m rail”, which refers to its weight per meter.
This grade of rail is widely used in many countries, including Europe, Asia, and Australia.
The R260 grade rail has a high carbon content, which contributes to its high hardness and good wear resistance.
In addition to its physical properties, the R260 grade rail is also known for its good dimensional stability, making it well suited for use in railway applications where precise track geometry is important.
To ensure the highest quality and performance, R260 grade rail is typically manufactured using advanced steel-making processes, such as electric arc furnaces or basic oxygen furnaces.
Proper installation and maintenance of R260 grade rail is important to ensure long-term performance and safety. This may include proper alignment, fastening, and lubrication of the rail and related components.
