Railcar Linings

American Association of Railroads CertifiedAbtrex Industries’ Texas Division features two total railcar linings and rehabilitation facilities. The first facility was established in 2008 after signing an agreement with Union Tank Car.

Whatever repairs your railcars require, we can help. Through our alliance with Union Tank Car, we can provide mechanical repairs, metal repairs, modifications, and all mandated certifications along with our lining services. Abtrex has met all of the requirements set by the Association of American Railroads Quality Assurance Program.

Up to 50 cars can be worked on simultaneously indoors and the yard can accommodate a fleet of 250 cars. Abtrex Industries’ experience allows you to select the best protective systems for your tank car fleet based on the commodities being shipped. As an approved applicator for both Blair Rubber and Polycorp, we are able to install a lining material that will meet your needs in both new and used railcars. Our trained, experienced staff can handle your railcar lining requirements.

Abtrex Industries’ partnership with Union Tank Car helps reduce turnaround time and simplify logistics.

Furthermore, Abtrex takes the utmost care to make our waste treatment and emissions safe for the environment.
