Primary Decking Materials

IMO/MED Certified deck covering. Panels and Composites

Green shipbuilding reaches cruise speed with the help of Amorim Cork Composites primary decking materials. Innovative and sustainable cork-based interior primary back solutions which ensures that ships comply with safety standards while significantly reducing their carbon footprint.

The key factor in ensuring a negative carbon footprint is the genesis of the cork oak forest which is carbon sink, responsible for retaining 73 tons of CO2 per ton of cork produced.

  • Exterior Primary Decking

    ACM30 is a cork composite, a material specially formulated to be used as an exterior primary deck covering for leveling and fairing with additional features.

     

    Due to the materials composition it significantly benefits weight reduction, being 2 to 5 times lighter than available primary decking’s therefore improving vessel performance and rating and consequently energy savings. It also serves as a structural damping soundproofing and thermal insulation barrier of the deck. IMO/MED Certified with fire standards.

  • Interior Primary Decking

    ACM52 is a cork composite, a material specially formulated to be used as an interior primary deck covering for leveling and fairing with additional features.

    Due to the materials composition it significantly benefits weight reduction, being 2 to 5 times lighter than available primary decking’s therefore improving vessel performance and rating and consequently energy savings. It also serves as a structural damping soundproofing and thermal insulation barrier of the deck. IMO/MED Certified with fire and smoke standards.

Cork technology is in a strong position to make an important contribution to a cleaner, greener cruise ship industry, with greater IMO compliance. Can be used in exterior and interior primary decking, where cork is at the core of our materials. Both are extremely versatile, lightweight composite materials with excellent thermal and acoustic insulation properties.

Because their main constituent is cork, a 100% natural, reusable and recyclable material, our range stands out as a particularly valuable solution for sustainable deck construction complying with the industry’s safety standards.

Key Features

  • ACM30 & ACM52 have a negative carbon footprint of -73 tons of CO2 per ton of cork used for a typical application this corresponds to 2,7 kilotons of CO2 retention

    Our primary deckings guarantee excellent quality and a negative carbon footprint.
