Our history

  • Creation of the company, Bretagne Emballage, dedicated to the plastic film trade for building and public works, industry and agriculture.
  • Launch of the Cultisol brand for products for cultivation under plastic, especially for the public gardens sector.
  • Launch of Geokit®, 1st complete kit of films and geotextiles for waterproofing autonomous waste water treatment networks.
  • Bretagne Emballage officially becomes Cultisol, dedicated to trade in and processing of plastic films for buildings and gardens, organised around two specialist divisions: Professional Buildings and Public Gardens.
  • Cultisol sets up a research and development programme for developing biodegradable films, the aim being to create a complete range for the general public network. Second enlargement of the Cultisol production site.
  • Launch of the activity of manufacturing waterproofing pieces in EPDM and acquisition of a tool for production by hot vulcanisation which is unique in Europe.
  • Transfer of the public garden activity to the Vilmorin group. Setting up of an R&D Department which specialises in elastomers, recruitment of a new materials engineering specialist.
  • Refocussing on the flexible elastomer structure businesses with the launch of the EPDM 3D roof range.
  • Creation of the Export Department. Launch of EPDM flexible tanks and ranges for waterproofing façades and foundations
  • Cultisol changes its name and becomes Flexirub from 1st May 2015, making a link between its name and its business. Development of new technical elastomer-based products.
  • Flexirub is 20-years’ old and obtains the (CSTB - Science and Technical Centre for Building) technical approval for roof waterproofing.

 

  • A FAMILY SME AT THE SERVICE OF ITS CUSTOMERS

    Flexirub
    is celebrating its 20th anniversary

    Flexirub was founded in 1996 and has become a leader and a specialist in the production of flexible structures with an elastomeric membrane (EPDM) base, for environmental, industrial and civil engineering applications.

    Its waterproofing production technique makes prefabrication in the workshop possible for flat roofs, tanks and basins, and underground tanks thus removing the need for any welding operations on the work site.

    A first in France.

  • OUR BUSINESS

    The prefabrication of elastomeric membranes by hot vulcanisation

    Flexirub makes totally watertight prefabricated waterproofing membranes. We weld by vulcanising the EPDM.
    Vulcanisation operates by cross-linking (fusion by interlinking the bonds in the material). The assembly is pressed automatically by a robot to obtain perfect, indestructible and controlled welding, thus creating a perfectly waterproof, ultra-resistant assembly.
    After vulcanisation the assembly becomes a single, homogeneous material both physically and chemically.

    A wide range of solutions
    INNOVATIVE and ready-to-use

    • Building and public works: waterproofing of flat roofs, façades and foundations, autonomous waste water treatment, water retention
    • Environment : storage reservoirs, technical and decorative tanks, underground tanks
    • Industry : biogas, specific projects after study, development of techniques for industry, etc.

    The EPDM geomembrane

    EPDM (Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer) is a special elastomer with the properties of elasticity, high resistance and exceptional service life. Ideal for all waterproofing work for tanks, roofs, foundations, etc. Ultra-resistant, indestructible assembly by welding.

    • Perfect waterproofing and 100% guaranteed.
    • Perfect homogeneity between the various panels making up the finished product
    • Mechanical resistance of the original sheet reinforced by the total cross-linking of the material at the welding.

EPDM roofing systems : good waterproofing is essential

Contemporary and unique though it may be, nevertheless the flat roof has one particular characteristic which should not be underestimated: its waterproofing. As the flat roof has limited run-off compared with the standard sloped roof, the performance of the waterproofing is indispensable.
