MPS-Protective cover by REO
The Moisture Protection System (MPS) protective coating is an essential element of REO’s insulation system and is one of the greatest USPs of REO’s components. Our specially developed MPS protective coating is available exclusively from REO. It provides your components with longterm, reliable protection from all kinds of environmental influences. To provide the necessary outdoor protection against pantograph abrasion, brake dust, metal abrasion, snow and ice, our components are finished with this special protective coating in addition to VPI impregnation. This gives you the opportunity to expose the built-in components (IP20) to unfiltered cooling air; a major benefit with regard to railway construction flexibility. REO uses this MPS protective coating for pollution degree PD3A or higher. REO offers this protective coating in REO Extreme or REO Mix and Match format.
