Sustainable materials for all types of flooring
Cork is the common denominator used in all our underlays. When applied beneath a flooring system, a cork-based underlay provides greater comfort, protection and longevity to the final floor, ensuring greater energy efficiency and better acoustic and thermal insulation.
Cork is incorporated into a bio-composite sandwich panel and delivers unique advantages in terms of thermal insulation, antifungal protection, fire retardancy, and indoor air quality.Cork cells are impregnated with air, thus making cork an excellent and unrivalled thermal insulator. No other material can deliver such e…
Cork has been used in the industry for many years, correct? Can you give some examples of the type of applications?
Exactly. Cork has been used in the Energy sector for a long time, in particular in the T&D Transmission and Distribution area (Power or Distribution Transformers). Cork is used as a sealing element, where unique combinations of cork and selected rubber create materials suitable for flat sealing applications which,…
3 – What about water and humidity?
No! Cork or cork blend underlays are dimensionally stable and do not expand in contact with water or high humidity conditions. We offer several options with attached vapour barriers, which provide moisture protection for moisture sensitive finished flooring products. It avoids the diffusion of the water vapour through…
Development and functional testing of an innovative protection system that will simultaneously perform structural and thermal functions, allowing the re-entry process of space capsules to Earth to be simplified. This system will combine the capacity to absorb impact energy on landing and the capacity to support the the…
Cork is a 100% natural material that has a honeycomb-like structure of microscopic cells filled with an air-like gas and coated mainly with suberin and lignin. One cubic centimeter of cork contains about 40 million cells. It has a closed-cell structure, making it lightweight, airtight and watertight. Cork is an amazing…
What are the main characteristics of cork?
Lightness Cork is a very light raw material, weighing just 0.16 grams per cubic centimeter, and can float. Flexibility/compressibility Each cork stopper is made up of around 800 million airtight cells. Among them is a gaseous mixture which allows it to be compressed to around half its thickness, without losing any flex…
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…
