Shipbuilding | BORFLEX®, elastomer & composite solutions


For many years, BORFLEX® has been developing elastomer and composite solutions for the French Navy and for shipyards.

Every day, BORFLEX® develops specific elastomer and composite products that meet the needs of its customers.

Based on its expertise in various manufacturing technologies and modulation of physical characteristics, the BORFLEX® Group provides the French Navy with parts that meet all specifications:

  • - Compliance with standards
  • - Performance
  • - Chemical and physical resistance (pressure, temperature...)
  • - Sustainability
  • - Tightness (to liquids, gases, noise, contamination, ballistic protection, radiation protection...)

BORFLEX® offers waterproofing solutions for the construction of your boats and a range of products for transporting your boats. 

The BORFLEX® Group designs and manufactures all types of rubber and polyurethane parts to guarantee the integrity of your boat during all phases of transport. The group's many years of experience enable BORFLEX® to offer you seals, slides, rails of low and high hardness, all of which guarantee long-lasting use. The group's many years of experience enable BORFLEX® to offer you seals, slides, rails of low and high hardness, all of which guarantee long-lasting use.

In addition to sealing, elastomers must fulfil several essential functions:

  • . abrasion resistance,
  • . resistance to tearing,
  • . the resistance to deformation,
  • . resistance to heat and cold,
  • . resistance to hydrocarbons,
  • . the compression set,
  • . ageing,
  • . etc.

Defence & Armaments

The BORFLEX® Group is able to design and mould seals to meet the most demanding requirements of the naval construction industry.

The BORFLEX® Group has been active in the defence and military sectors for many years and offers reliable and durable solutions:

  • . elastomeric compounds with outstanding performance even under extreme conditions (temperature, pressure, etc.),
  • . compliance with standards,
  • . guaranteeing watertightness (liquids, gases, noise, external contamination, etc.),
  • . ballistic protection,
  • . radiation protection.

The BORFLEX® group equips a large number of equipment by providing performance and efficiency. To meet the challenges of defence and armament, innovation is at the heart of the BORFLEX® Group's concerns.

Development of marinas, docks and unloading quays

Defence of docks

The BORFLEX Group has been equipping wharves, docks and ports with fenders for several years.

These dock fenders absorb the impact of the ship when it comes to dock or even when it passes by at low speed. This protects both the ship and the wharf.

The elastomers chosen for these fenders have very good resistance to weathering, impact, tearing, abrasion and sea water.
