Cactus Rail Composites and Coatings deliver high performance erosion, corrosion and chemical attack repair and protection

Cactus Surface Preparation and Composites and Coatings technologies repair and protect railway rolling stock, bridges and structures in all operating conditions.

The Bristle Blaster is a safe, compact and easy-to-use tool. It can be deployed quickly, removing the need for expensive and coordinated transportation of blasting abrasives and contamination.

Our Composites and Coatings solutions ensure high performance erosion and corrosion protection, as well as UV, fire and chemical resistance for such rolling stock requirements.

Our rapid curing technologies ensure the most effective and efficient application and repair processes, reducing downtime and labour costs.

Surface preparation is the essential first step in repairing and protecting equipment and structures.

At Cactus we’re dedicated to providing you with the tools which will allow you to prepare surfaces to the highest possible standards of cleanliness and roughness.

We’re the sole official UK and Ireland distributor of Monti technology – patented surface preparation tools for the removal of corrosion, mill scale and coatings – that operate without the hassle and mess associated with conventional grit blasting:

  • Creates a surface cleanliness equivalent to SA 2.5 (SSPC-SP 10, near white metal blast cleaning)
  • Creates surface texture / anchor profile up to 120µm (Rz) / 4.72 mils
  • Environmentally friendly surface preparation; does not use or generate hazardous materials
  • Removes the need for enclosures, reprocessing or disposal of grit
  • Effective solution for surface preparation in confined spacing.

Our superior service and technical support provides bespoke end-to-end solutions and ensures you get the most out of our innovative technology.

Cactus Composites and Coatings ensure high performance, long-lasting repair and protection for railway infrastructure, carriages and tanks, regardless of the contents being carried. Cactus solutions ensure a quick return to service and provide:
