As the leading European specialist for PMMA liquid applied waterproofing, there is one thing we have learnt over the past 40 years: having an outstanding product is not enough to solve problems permanently. As a family company, we adopt an entirely different approach here: we always solve problems together. The unique collaboration between you as the contractors, the planners, our employees and, of course, our products means everyone benefits. We do everything in our power to ensure this. You can always rely on that! Welcome to the Triflex family.
As a chemical company, we are fully aware of our special responsibility towards the environment and our fellow human beings. Sustainability is therefore one of our topmost principles. Only the sensible use of natural resources in the interests of future generations ensures our business success in the long term. For this reason, our sustainable actions go far beyond compliance with statutory provisions.
Our history from 1977 to the present day
For more than 40 years, the Triflex name has stood for state-of-the-art technology and expertise in waterproofing, coating and marking. Since day one, we have been committed to the protection of buildings of all kinds with a wide range of liquid applied waterproofing products against the penetration of moisture and damp and ensuring road safety with our markings.

We invest heavily to keep quality, sustainability, service and the latest technology standards at the highest level. With an investment ratio of more than 10 per cent of sales in recent years, we are sending a clear signal – especially at our German locations. The construction of the new production facility for construction chemicals at the Minden site (2017) and the opening and commissioning of the Lager Süd warehouse (2018) are just a few examples.
