Traffic Technology

Light, efficient and robust to protect against vandalism

Get on board. Faster, lighter, more compact: In order to make an impression in the area of fuel efficiency and emission reduction, train and aircraft manufacturers need to consider new materials. In contrast to metals, construction plastics make an impression because of their specific weight and the variety of available processing options.

High-quality plastics are conductive, resistant and have high strength when they are exposed to strong vibrations. There are also vast possibilities for designing stressed surfaces. Wherever metal reaches its limits, plastics develop their great potential, and meta-technik knows how to help you achieve your goals by using plastics.

Advantages for traffic technology

Wear protection

Long service life and low maintenance. Thanks to their slide-promoting and corrosion-proof properties, plastics provide reliable protection to prevent wearing, even with abrasive materials.


We offer a wide range of plastics certified for traffic technology. Our plastic products meet the quality standard in accordance with the new European rail vehicle standard DIN EN 45545-2:2013


The lightness of plastics gives unbeatable added value: Technical applications consume less energy and are therefore also more environmentally friendly.

Low noise level

Technical plastics have excellent sound absorbing properties. This makes technical applications quieter and travelling by train and plane more pleasant.


Plastics have excellent frictional properties, so even with constant use there is no abrasion. That means more durability and lower costs for products.
