The IntegriTies™ Difference
IntegriCo’s manufacturing and quality control experts thoroughly inspect and test each delivery of incoming plastic. The plastic mixture is then fed into our patented equipment for processing and delivered into molds. Once removed from the mold, we inspect, measure, and test each tie to verify compliance with quality specifications. IntegriCo’s site and process are AAR M-1003 compliant and we use Statistical Process Control (SPC) to ensure that quality is integrated into the design and process of all our rail ties. We continually test our products to ensure the highest quality and superior performance.
IntegriCo’s IntegriTies™ have successfully undergone extensive independent performance testing at independent testing facilities including the American Railway Association’s world recognized Transportation Technology Center, Inc. (TTCI), in Pueblo, Colorado.
IntegriCo Composites’ IntegriTies™ meet or exceeds all technical properties recommended by the American Railway Engineers Maintenance-of-way Association (AREMA) Committee 30 for composite cross ties.
