Thermal Insulation

In contrast to impact sound, thermal insulation is the capacity of the material to resist cold or heat. By increasing the thickness of the underlay, the thermal resistance also increases. Cork acts as a natural insulation in spaces where underlays are installed because of its ability to maintain the temperature inside…

The best solution for excellent impact noise and thermal insulation

After installation, the screed tends to “sink”, especially next to the walls of each room, due to reactions caused during the screed’s drying process. After years of use, including traffic and occasional heavy loads, the screed may also become thinner, and lead to unpleasant gaps next to the walls. A cork-based undersc…
