What common sense once told us about the benefits of rail lubrication and friction management is now backed by scientific research...
We are committed to the continuous advancement of lubrication and friction management science and its effect on Wheel/Rail Interaction. This commitment has enabled us to become the industry leader. H.O.W.™ we do it is exactly "how" we do it. We recognize that not one single type of application system can satisfy the varying needs of every rail freight and transit operator. The wide range of operating conditions found in the rail industry dictates a multi-systems approach that we call H.O.W.™ - hi-rail, on-board, wayside. You'll find innovation in every facet of our H.O.W.™ approach and advanced thinking in our Total Friction Management™ program!
