Available compounds for this machine.

Machine grade Tie Plugging Compound

The most reliable, cost effective spike hole filling compound in the industry. Designed for all of our tie plugging equipment that utilize modern meter-mix dispensing technology to provide a consistent quality of 35-40 pounds-per-cubic foot spike hole filling compound in both wood and composite crossties.


  • A 1:1 ratio expanding compound that greatly reduces the amount of compound needed and reduces costs in excess of 60% as compared to 1:2 ratio compounds
  • Material density is matched to a hardwood tie @ 45-55 lbs/sq ft, and will not damage the tie, unlike competitor’s material which is harder than a wood crosstie
  • Maintains superior spike retention and track gauge as proven in the field and in independent testing
  • Can be applied in low temperatures
  • Available in 5 gallon pails and 250 gallon totes
  • The packaging of this product can be customized to meet your specific needs

2 Part Concrete Tie High Viscosity Epoxy

Designed for:

Quickly repairing moderate to deep concrete tie rail-seat abrasion


  • This two component product has the shortest cure time of all similar repair materials on the market*
  • Our faster setting epoxy allows maintenance gangs to do their work in less time using shorter track windows
  • Can be applied in low temperatures
  • Available in 5 gallon pails for both the A & B components

*Epoxy cure time is dependent upon depth of repair (film thickness required), temperature of the tie, and the temperature of the dispensed epoxy at the time of application.

SpeedSet® UV Light Curing Epoxy System Add-on

A patent-pending revolutionary UV light curing epoxy system for rail seat abrasion repair and protection. SpeedSet® is a single-part, clear, unfilled, low viscosity, epoxy system designed for instant setting with UV light, and performance in all climates. Using SpeedSet® can eliminate several epoxy repair cycles and costs. SpeedSet® can be easily and economically installed into existing concrete crosstie manufacturing facilities. It reduces the time and labor involved in placing pads and clips on crossties. It can extend the life of your crossties by up to 10 years.
