Natural raw materials
What is the source of the chemical materials and elements used in plastic- and rubber-based infills? Despite the strict rules on raw materials that can be used to produce synthetic infills, concerns remain regarding the potential use of poorer-quality materials or materials from an unknown source.
This is not the case for cork infills, as this type of filling is made up of 100%-natural materials obtained from cork bark and, for Amorim Cork Composites, completely free from chemical contamination pursuant to REACH, an EU regulation on the registration, evaluation, authorisation and restriction of chemical products.
A quality profile enhanced through the use of cork mainly from forests certified by the Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC) and/or by the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification Schemes (PEFC).
