EDILON Corkelast Embedded Block System (EBS)
edilon)(sedra, with its Corkelast Embedded Block System (EBS), has pursued the concept of elastically supported sleeper blocks. This elastic support providing the same dynamic spring and damping behaviour of ballasted track under traffic loads. As earlier demonstrated by the transition from monoblock to bi-block sleepers in ballasted track systems, the EBS solution is based on individual blocks. By virtue of their position-stable integration in a concrete slab structure, these blocks do not require additional alignment elements such as gauge bars. The primary characteristic of EBS is based on EDILON Corkelast. This provides elastic bonding of the individual blocks and the supporting concrete slab. The unique, proven, reliable, two component embedding compound assures outstanding position stability over decades – along with simple installation, low system costs, and minimum maintenance.
