Why Cork
Excellent Elasticity and Compressibility

It is the only solid which, when compressed on one side, does not increase in volume on another; and as a result of its elasticity it is able to adapt, for example, to variations in temperature and pressure without suffering alterations.

Controlled side flow

No allowance need to be made for side flow if a cork rubber material of the correct firmness is selected. The compressability of cork-rubber can be used instead ofnon-compressible molded rubber o-rings.

Capacity to resist loads

Daily use exposes the flooring to various types of loads. The underlay allows the floor to support these loads without changing its properties. Given the intimate relationship between the elastic capacity and compressibility of cork-based materials, it is possible to ensure greater uniformity of the flooring over time.…

Cork as a damping material

Due to its closed, cellular structure, filled with air, cork has a higher loss factor than rubber, which is essential for damping and consequent energy dissipation. Our specific polymer formulations and the addition of cork, with its unique compressibility and recovery features, enhance the material’s high loss factor.…

An (even more) sustainable solar

The main properties of cork – such as impermeability, lightness, elasticity, compressibility and resilience - remain unchanged, ensuring the floater's performance. It should also be noted that, for each ton of cork produced, the cork oak forest can sequester up to 73 tons of CO2. This factor reduces the environmental i…

Damping

Damping is the dissipation of energy, usually by releasing it in the form of low-grade heat. The loss factor quantifies the level of damping of a material, it is the ratio of energy dissipated from the system to the energy stored in the system for every cycle. Due to corks closed cell structure filled with air, cork ha…

WHY CORK?

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 centimetre 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 centimetre, 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…

Noise pollution

Noise pollution is a serious environmental problem in European cities, that has been recognised by the World Health Organisation. The main sources of pollution in urban areas are road, rail and air traffic, and industry (EEA Report: Environmental noise in Europe , 2020). However, since this is not a new problem, the co…
