Our coatings are a leading choice for high-speed rail applications. They carry liquids and dry bulk supplies, which must be insulated from substrate materials to a range of passenger cars. Axalta coatings are not only tough but beautiful, enabling cities to have clean and colorful rail cars that people ride every day. Our rail coatings expertise spans everything from passenger carriages to high-speed trains, locomotives, trams, and metros for both interior and exterior uses.​

​With technology-driven solutions, Axalta is the coatings provider partner of choice for the rail industry. We have high-performance coating solutions – both interior and exterior – for the OEM and refurbishment sectors that build and repair passenger carriages, high-speed trains, locomotives, tramways, and metros.​

​Axalta R&D strives to address the challenges of today and the future. We offer sustainable and environmentally responsible products and technologies. Imron® primers, fillers, topcoats and clear-over-base systems in waterborne technology offer aesthetics, durability, high-resistance to wear and low maintenance costs. The life of a train car, the on-going cleaning, weight reduction, duty cycles, and maintenance and upkeep costs are factors as important as the original investment.​
