Cork is used inside Mazda’s new 100% electric car
Cork was chosen for the interior lining of the car because it is a sustainable and biodegradable raw material
Cork can take on many different shapes, from the simplest to the most complex, to meet the manufacturers' design requirements and create sophisticated and elegant interiors, using, for example, moulding, lamination, extrusion and injection processes.
Lightweight, durable and with a high thermal insulation and anti-vibration capacity, cork offers the technical performance demanded by the market. Furthermore, as it is a natural and sustainable raw material, it also responds to the environmental concerns of the industry and consumers.
Cork is a natural and sustainable option for the various elements that make up the vehicle's interior, such as door linings, the interior console or the dashboard.
In addition to their sophisticated look and the comfort they provide, our materials are able to respond to the wear and tear caused by everyday use. Thanks to a coating, cork resists water, stains and UV rays.
Even when it is not visible, cork contributes to reducing the carbon footprint of the car production industry and to the decarbonisation of the mobility sector.
Cork can be combined with different thermoplastic materials, partially replacing plastic and creating more sustainable end products.
These materials can be processed using different production techniques - such as extrusion, injection moulding, thermoforming, blow moulding or continuous press - creating components that are fully adapted to the customer's technical requirements.
Polymer cork composites (CPCs) can also be visually adjusted to match the aesthetic needs of the final project.
