The Flexim Story

What is Flexim?

Flexim is a ready-to-use roof mortar for fastening ridge tiles and roofing tiles on tiled roofs. It has been successfully used for over 30 years in the repair, renovation and new construction markets.

Flexim is formulated using natural ingredients, and contains no toxic substances which are harmful to the environment. Indeed, the primary ingredient of Flexim is actually a plant material: linseed oil. In addition, Flexim is aesthetically pleasing once installed as it gives the ridge and roof hip a traditional look.

Flexim is packaged in lightweight, ready-to-use strips so that the job on your roof can be performed easily and incredibly quickly. The product is available in a choice of packaging sizes:- larger packs containing 10 strips and smaller packs containing 5 strips. There are also Flexim tools available that ensure a good and proper seal.

Flexim applications

Flexim is a versatile, multifunctional product that is used in all sorts of applications, from roof repair and renovation to new build construction. The most prevalent application is securing ridge tiles on the roof’s ridge and hip, but Flexim can be used in many other places on the roof, including.

  • Securing and supporting tiles in the valley gutter (airtight and watertight solution)
  • Securing and supporting tiles along roof windows (airtight and watertight solution)
  • Connection between the ridge tile and chimney (filling in holes and seams)
