Bâtiment Sefmat

Sefmat group Specialist in velocity hot air weeding

The ability to develop innovative and secure products has allowed SEFMAT to create different brands in different sectors. The RIPACK® brand specialized in packaging, JETPACK® specialized in road marking, RIPACK SUPPLIES® in the protection of bulky industrial goods and finally, RIPAGREEN® for thermal weeding.

What all these markets have in common is a system that is unique worldwide, allowing the production of hot air over a large width with unequalled safety levels.
By investing more and more in research and development, SEFMAT is able to provide its customers with innovative and high quality products.

History Know-how forged by experience


When it was founded in 1922, the RIPPES factories specialised in the design of welding equipment and then progressively acquired a great know how in the control of the flame, gas and safety elements, which were already very innovative.


In addition to technical innovations, the company also developed a network of dealers throughout the world. To support this growth, the company SEFMAT was founded.


SEFMAT develops an innovative ignition system as well as aluminium extension tubes, which make it possible to work farther and cover ground surfaces. Thanks to this innovation, several fields of application emerge; ecological weeding is not very widespread at this time.


The “Labbé” law published on 8 of February 2014, which prohibits the use of chemical pesticides by public authorities and private individuals under certain conditions, has led SEFMAT to propose an innovative solution of thermal weed control, through the creation of its own division “RIPAGREEN®”.


After a long development process, a first offer is made to the communes and the innovative value of this product being awarded the Innovation Prize at the trade fair “Salon Vert” in Paris. The RIPAGREEN® adventure begins and the dealer network quickly spreads throughout Europe.


The assortment expands and RIPARGEEN® offers a range of hot air weeding equipment covering all types of grounds. Innovation, that is the foundation for our further development, which is constantly linked to feedback from the field. An ergonomic backpack is patented, the Mobility Kit and Easy + Kit complete the range.


The Autonomy Kit was developed to meet the demands for more autonomy and surface coverage. A frame that allows the connection of several gas bottles, thermal lances and 15-metres hose reels.


Through constant investment in research and development, RIPAGREEN® aims to meet the demands for reliability, quality and variety of surfaces to be treated. More on this in the next episode…
