Thermal neutrons absorption


BORFLEX is the French and European leader of the rubber industry.
It has been certified ISO-9001 for many years and has developed and optimized this mixture of rubber and B4C powder that is FLEXIBORE®

Our plant is equipped for the confection/making and cutting of B4C calendaring of the flexible sheet.

As a rubber solution provider, BORFLEX remains committed to innovation in its products and technology. BORFLEX has developed and optimized FLEXIBORE®, a specific powdered bore (B4C) natural rubber compound.

FLEXIBORE® finished product contains 50% of its weight in B4C powder. The B10 included in our material absorbs the neutrons. The diffusion effect is not significant if compared to the neutron absorption. FLEXIBORE® is also used in neutron spectrometry to reduce background noise.
