Using innovative compound formulations and production techniques, Derby Rubber manufactures rubber products that survive the harshest conditions, are abrasion resistant, and dampen vibration. Ensuring their capabilities in rubber extrusion, moulding, hand building, compound, and tooling design create high-performing, resilient products that go the distance. Out-lasting many alternatives in the industry.

Hollow Ballastick® for Ballast Sweeping

Derby Rubber has designed and produced a unique semi-solid ballast regulator broom element using a superior rubber compound. A one of a kind in the industry, the Hollow Ballastick® extends the wear life of hollow broom elements by over 200%, easily surpassing the lifetime and performance of cheaper imitations, most of which consist of a glued-in plug that eventually falls out. Their specially developed formulation has positioned Derby Rubber as the global leader in the rail industry, ensuring the most efficient and effective track sweeping operations.

Solid Ballastick® for Ballast Sweeping

Their large range of Solid Ballasticks® are proven to perform in the toughest conditions. From the searing heat of a heavy haul track in an Australian summer to the icy railway lines of Finland and Russia, they are formulated to be hard wearing, elevating the efficiency of track sweeping operations.

C3 for Ballast Regulator Machines

Derby Rubber’s C3, a quick-change clamp is used to fasten broom elements to the rotating brush of the ballast regulator machine. Their C3 simplifies and increases the efficiency of changing worn broom elements, while keeping the operator safe from possible injury.

Door Nosing Seals for Railway Carriages

Derby Rubber manufactures door nosings that are fitted to electro-pneumatically driven doors. Designed to close tolerances, our door nosings are easy to fit and have a strong resistance to tears and environmental decay. Protecting rail passengers from the weather and potential injury.

Keyed and Keyless Window Seals for Railway Carriages

Derby Rubber manufactures window seals that not only form a water and weatherproof seal between the glass and vehicle frame, but also prevent rattling during transportation. Compounded to minimise the ageing process through ultraviolet exposure, Derby Rubber’s seals offer flexibility in simple assembly, but also meet the latest European Standards for fire, smoke and toxicity resistance in underground metro systems.

Derby Rubber has a long-standing history of delivering high performance, resilient engineered rubber products for over 55 years to an impressive range of global customers, including:
