Cork is a natural material with a unique touch, visual and warm feeling. In order to protect it from external elements like humidity, abrasion and stains, we continuously develop different coatings which maintain cork´s sensorial attributes throughout time. Bench designed by Daniel Michalik.
A coating or surface treatment that prevents the gasket material from adhering to the flanges.
Short for polyvinyl chloride (P.V.C.), vinyl is a shiny plastic often used for coating shoes.
A commonly used flooring finish because of its strength. Second in hardness to diamond, it serves as a protective coating for many hardwoods.
Cork is extremely flexible and highly resistant to moisture, oxidation and deterioration, thanks to the suberin coating of its granules. These characteristics reduce wear and tear and ensure the quality of the artificial turf system for a longer period of time.
Why is cork one of the most important materials in spacecraft?
Due to the fact that it is an excellent thermal insulator. When a rocket or spacecraft is launched into space, its structure is subjected to temperatures exceeding one thousand degrees centigrade. The same occurs on the return to Earth, as soon as the spacecraft enters the atmosphere. Just a coating of a cork compound…
Special coatings for cork protection have been developed to maintain its sensorial attributes.
Description and functionality
When Amorim Cork Composites added cork and rubber as the core material applied to sandwich wood panels (CPA - acoustic plywood) this was an innovative solution to reduce noise and vibration in interior floors for trains. The combination of viscoelastic material (such as cork) in a sandwich panel contributes greatly to…
Amorim Cork Composites launched a Kaizen project in order to increase its industrial contribution margin.
The initiative has already delivered positive results and the company recently received an Honorable Mention in the Kaizen Lean Awards, in the category, "Excellence in Productivity".This project, developed in partnership with the Kaizen Institute, has applied continuous improvement methodologies, through implementation…
Spectrum of attributes
Cork presents a wide range of benefits from the core of the bark to the outer layer. These layers are transformed into several different cork components to be part of a flooring solution with different attributes and benefits. Introducing cork in a flooring system allows to effectively reduce the total weight of the sy…
