The use of TARRC’s Natural-FR with its ‘green credentials’ will assist industry to meet sustainability targets in products. The rubber in Natural-FR is derived from renewable resources and a life cycle analysis has indicated the production of the polymer to have a significant negative carbon footprint.

‘I am delighted that this unique material developed here at TARRC has passed the stringent requirements demanded by London Underground,’ says Dr Stuart Cook, TARRC’s Director of Research. ‘TARRC’s Natural-FR addresses today’s market needs for safe, high performing sustainable materials which can be used in challenging environments such as metro systems.’
